Class G: 100 years of Maserati
This year marks Maserati's 100th anniversary. This day marks the 68th anniversary of the Italian Republic. What better way to celebrate Italy's National Day than with a gallery of beautiful Maserati cars?
These are the historic cars that took part in the Maserati class (Class G) of the 2014 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este:
- 1929 Maserati V4 Sport, spider coachwork by Zagato (Class Winner)
- 1953 Maserati A6GCS, berlinetta coachwork by Pinin Farina (Mention of Honour)
- 1956 Maserati A6G/54, berlinetta coachwork by Allemano
- 1956 Maserati A6G/2000, berlinetta coachwork by Zagato
- 1957 Maserati 150 GT Prototype, spider coachwork by Fantuzzi
- 1965 Maserati Quattroporte 1st Series, saloon coachwork by Frua
All of these cars are absolutely beautiful, but the Maserati that most struck the Concorso's jury and public was Albert Speiss' 1956 Maserati 450 S, running in the "Da Corsa" (Racecar) class. The 450 S won the Trofeo BMW Group (Best of Show by the Jury), and was awarded Class Winner. A truly spectacular machine.
