Maserati: A Century of Victories

I get emails on a regular basis from the Maserati folks presenting some of their corporate advertising materials.  Today I got an email in which Maserati announced that they were releasing the first of 100 lithographs celebrating the company’s 100 year history.  Created to celebrate a century of Maserati victories, the 100 special-edition lithographs, inspired by vintage posters, will retrace the most important stages in Maserati’s sporting history.  The some of the first lithographs in this series are shown below

Maserati Centenial Lithograph 1

Maserati is one of the great names in motor sport.  They have built some very nice cars over the years.  I thought that I would present some of the best cars that Maserati has produced.  I know that there are others, but following are a few of my favorites.

Maserati 1956 (1)

1956 Maserati Zagato Coupe

The Maserati coupe shown above might be the nicest car of all of the cars that Maserati built.

 Maserati Tipo 300S 1956 (1.1)

1956 Maserati Tipo 300S

In the mid-1950s if you wanted to be competitive in sports car racing, the Maserati sports car series – 150S, 200S, and the 300S was the way to go.

Maserati A6 GCS MM 1953 (1)

1953 Maserati A6 GCS MM

The two-seat Maserati A6 GCS MM was built with competing in the Mille Miglia in mind.

Maserati 250F 1954 (2)

1954 Maserati 250F

In Gran Prix racing the Maserati 250F had a long history of competitive finishes.  Stirling Moss bought and raced his own Maserati 250F.

Maserati A6 GCS (2)

This Maserati has competed in the revival of the Mille Miglia.  The 2014 edition of the Mille Miglia was held this past weekend.

One hundred numbered prints of each individual lithograph will be produced, each signed by the artist. The 100 lithographs will be released in five issues over the course of 2014, the Maserati Centennial year: go to the Maserati online store, by clicking on the following link, to see the first 20 prints from the collection.
