Maserati has unveiled two F Tributo Special Edition models, which celebrate its racing history.
The special editions are based on the Ghibli and Levante vehicles, said the company.
“Maserati’s racing debut was exactly 95 years ago. It was on 25 April 1926 that the first racing car to bear the trident on its bonnet, the Tipo26, won the 1,500cc class at the Targa Florio with Alfieri Maserati at the wheel,” said Maserati.
“28 years later, on 17 January 1954, Maserati made its debut in F1 and entered the pinnacle of world motorsports with the 250F driven by Juan Manuel Fangio.”
The “F” in the F Tributo name stands for Fangio, as a result.
Maserati said the special editions of the Ghibli and Levante will be available in two exclusive colours: Rosso Tributo and Azzurro Tributo.
“Red is the colour of Italian motorsports, and historically Maserati cars always raced in paintwork of this hue, which represented Italy in motor racing in the early years of the last century,” it said.
“The bright, vibrant blue of Azzurro Tributo, on the other hand, reminds us that blue is one of the colours – together with yellow – of the city of Modena, the brand’s historic home.”
The Levante F Tributo is then fitted with Anteo 21-inch wheels in black, while the Ghibli F Tributo features 21-inch Titano wheels in glossy black.
Badges on the wheel arches are also finished in black, while the Maserati trident logo on the C-pillar matches the cars’ body colour.
“Finally, the shades of the exterior details are reflected on the interior in the red or yellow stitching, combined with the black full-grain Pieno Fiore leather.”
