The Maserati is an Italian car that has always been associated with speed and racing.
Maserati began in 1926, with five brothers who enjoyed racing and motorcycles. In 1926, the year they built their first car, one of the brothers, Alfieri, had a class win in the Targa Florio. Encouraged by their success, the brothers decided to go into the business of building racing cars.
In 1957 the business was bought by a businessman named Adolfo Orsi. That same year, Maserati unveiled its first real road car, the A6-1500.
The 250F followed, and then came the 3500GT coupe. By 1966, Maserati had introduced the Quarttro Porte saloon, the Mexico coupe, the Ghibli, and the Spyder. When it needed a mid-engine design, Maserati introduced the Bora in 1971.
Citroen bought Maserati in 1968 but didn't do much with the brand. In 1975, when it was announced that the Maserati factory was going to be liquidated, an Italian named Alejandro de Tomaso came to the rescue. Maserati was later acquired by Fiat, and finally by Ferrari. Today, the company still offers the Coupe and Spyder.
