MASERATI'S "CENTENNIAL GATHERING"
 

Details of the provisional programme of events for the Maserati International "Centennial Gathering" have been released.

The three-day meeting, with the option of a fourth day on the 17th September, will take place between the 18th and 20th of September 2014, and is only open to members of an official Maserati Club.

 
 

 
 

The three-day meeting will commence in Modena, moving on to Cremona, then on to Turin, finishing at the new Maserati factory at Grugliasco.

For the optional fourth-day, participants will be taken to Bologna.

 
 

Participants will be free to roam around the Piazza Maggiore and Piazza del Nettuno for a rare and unique photo opportunity and visit the site of the first Maserati workshop.

 
 

As participants check in they will position their cars in Modena's main Piazza. They will then be able to tour the factory and be invited to an exclusive Walking Dinner Experience with surprising performers and opera singers.

 
 

Participants leave Modena, heading towards the San Marino del Lago circuit in Cremona. Here they will test the track and relax in the Maserati Lounge Area. Lunch will also be served at the circuit.

The transfer from Modena to Turin will be done on national roads and a TDS race will take place. The participants will depart to Turin, parading through the streets of Cremona on the way.

On arrival in Turin, guests will gather in the Piazza Castello. A Concours d'Elegance is planned to take place in Piazza San Carlo, after which the group will be transferred to the beautiful Reggia di Venaria for the gala dinner.

 
 

In the morning, cars will depart from Piazza Castello to Grugliasco, home of the AGAP factory. Guests will be able to visit the plant. The location will be the setting for a light lunch before the final leg of the day.

During the last morning, cars may leave Turin to reach Superga to visit the Basilica.

FIAT ABARTH
 

"Hi there Enrico, How are things with you ? Hope you and yours are well and enjoying life. Remember the article you sent to us all, about the Abarth 695 Biposto, and I replied with a further story about the Oakley 240bhp 695 special, then you asked if you could put my story on your website after reading about my racing my Abarths in the ‘50s & ‘60s ? Well I have remembered a little more detail, as to who I personally bought my 1,000 TCR from, obviously it was as told to you previously, as I got it from Radbourne Racing, but I forgot who sold it and serviced it for me. It was the Anstead Brothers, Geoff & John Anstead and their business partner Gladstone Small, who brought in the cars from Italy, with all the Abarth parts separately, and built them up here in their workshops in London, they charged by an uncomplicated menu, £1 for each Cubic Centimetre, so a 595 Abarth was £595, an 850 Abarth was £850, and a 1,000 Abarth at £1,000. This was quite unique in those days, and we were all as customers, allowed to peruse through the workshops and check if there was anything else we needed, to ensure your car was unique depending on whether you were to use your car on the road or on the track. It was a great way of doing business and their customers, like me, were looked after quite well, and We enjoyed our time with them. One day I remember they phoned me and asked if I would be at all interested in putting a 1,300cc engine from an Abarth Spyder in the back of my TCR ! I could not afford to do that then, and about a year later the Abarth Factory introduced the 1,300 in a Fiat 850 body, swiftly followed by a 1,600 and finally a 2,000cc engine was introduced. It was a real stormer, produced 240 bhp and was quite quick in those days, I have the full details in my Abarth Manual of ALL models produced by them from start to finish, including the record attempt cars, it is a wonderful book, I love reading it and remembering what I did many years ago when I was young! See you soon I hope, Regards, Peter.

MASERATI BITURBO SPYDER
 

"Hi Enrico,

I have a rebuilt my Maserati 222 series so it now looks like a 1993 model. The car has a long history.

Now it has an 18-valve 2.8-litre Biturbo non-catalytic AM 473 series engine No. 553060. Electronic ignition and fuel injection. From 1988-1991, am I right 255 or 285 HP ??

My problem is that the engine is misfiring at low rpm, under 2200 rpm. If you push it no problems. In high gear (manual) at low rpm it's misfiring.

How do I adjust and control it ? The car has covered 82,000 km.

Can you please help ?

Regards,

Ole."

In general, all of the major European markets have thrived, reaching 1330 registrations in the first quarter of this year (data from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Spain and Switzerland) with an average increase of 464% compared to the same period last year.

A SPECIAL MASERATI BY ZANOTTA CAPSULE COLLECTION
 

The Maserati by Zanotta Capsule Collection
 

A special Maserati by Zanotta Capsule Collection will be unveiled at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan; the new exclusive pieces of furniture originate from the collaboration between the two brands, the protagonists of Made in Italy.

After the success of the collaboration which started last year with the Maserati Lounge Chair by Zanotta, also presented at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, the creative synergy is renewed, giving birth to the Maserati by Zanotta Capsule Collection.

 

The Maestrale Writing Desk

The Maestrale Writing Desk
 

The foot rest for the Grandtour Lounge Chair, the Corina chair and the Maestrale table are the three new pieces of furniture born from Maserati and Zanotta co-branding and, like the Lounge Chair, feature the prestigious signature of Ludovica+Roberto Palomba. The designers have created a new series of exclusive items inspired by the style of the iconic Maserati cars, conceiving them as autonomous pieces and, at the same time, an extension to and completion of the chair with which they share an aesthetic DNA marked with excellence and a strongly innovative spirit, in line with the philosophy of the two brands. The designers explain that the foot rest of the Lounge Chair “is inspired by the semantic universe of Italian-born American artist, Harry Bertoia”, where exquisite technical skill is accompanied by a great passion for formal experimentation.

 

The Maestrale Writing Desk and Corina Chair

Grandtour Limited Series Armchair and Footrest
 

On the chromed base, which also comes in a nickel-plated glossy black finish, rests the structure of rigid polyurethane, upholstered with polyurethane/Dacron Du Pont. The quilted removable cover is available in three different colour versions: dark grey leather with a light grey edge, light grey leather with a brown edge, mud-coloured leather with a light grey edge.

The Corina chair, Ludovica and Roberto Palomba say, “is characterised by a metal rod frame with a leather cover. The craftsmanship of the shell upholstery presents a series of curves and details that are similar to Maserati car seats”. The design of the light “armour” that joins the steel legs, in chrome or nickel-plated glossy black finish, to the rigid polyurethane shell allows for gentle, comfortable seating. The removable cover is made from quilted leather coupled with heat-bound polyester fibre.

 

Grandtour Limited Series Armchair and Footrest

Grandtour Limited Series Ermenegildo Zegna
 

The Maestrale desk has a clean, linear volume and is composed from a thick, flat Canaletto walnut top, which rests on a steel rod frame. Carved into the top, made of walnut-veneered plywood or, alternatively, in a sought after pigmented cowhide, there is a large drawer. The legs are chrome-plated steel or nickel plated glossy black. Regarding the design of the table, the Palombas explain that “the mix of materials and the exclusivity of the processing refer to the idea of know-how, common ground for Zanotta and Maserati”.

An extreme formal refinement and composition, conjugated to the high quality of craftsmanship, are common elements of the collection, which is enhanced by an additional piece thanks to the prestigious collaboration with Ermenegildo Zegna, the brand leader in luxury menswear. The Maserati by Zanotta Lounge Chair is proposed this year, together with its foot rest, in a special limited edition of 100 units, dressed in a precious 100% silk fabric produced by the Zegna Wool Mill, in combination with the leather. This is a transposition into the world of interior design from the Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition project, the limited edition of 100 cars conceived as a tribute to the 2014 centenary of Maserati.

Exclusivity, elegance and innovation are the values on which Zanotta and Maserati have built their history of excellence and at the same time represent the common ground on which the two brands came together to create this shared project, now in its second edition: the starting point and successful introduction for future collaborations.
