The Spear’s Wealth Management Awards were held last night at Sotheby’s in London to honour the achievements of those in the high net worth world.

Maserati won the “Luxury Retail Brand of the Year” Award, for a luxury brand which has demonstrated prestige brand leadership throughout 2007-8. Maserati - according to the judging panel consisting of experts in all areas of the luxury, art and financial world as well as Spear’s journalists - achieved notable development in status and brand position in relation to the HNW community.

William Cash, Editor of the Year 2008 and founder of the Spear’s Wealth Management Survey handed over the prize to Maserati GB’s Managing Director Andrea Antonnicola who said: “I am exceedingly proud of collecting this award on behalf of Maserati and of all my colleagues at the headquarters in Italy. We couldn’t have asked for a more prestigious recognition of our efforts to carve a prominent and stable place in the world of luxury. Being selected among other nominees such as Cartier, Patek Philippe and Bentley to name but a few, makes this award even more significant.”

The Spear’s Wealth Management Survey is a quarterly magazine for high net worth individuals and those in the financial service industries. It can be considered a Michelin guide of the financial world and has been called “the Bible of the banking fraternity” by GQ and “a European rival to Forbes” by the Evening Standard, and goes to 25,000 of Europe’s decision-makers and wealth-creators.

The Awards categories ranged widely: from the best luxury brand to the ultimate in leisure and business travel, from the private banker at the peak of their career to the future leaders standing just behind them, from the philanthropist who takes a close involvement in their gifts to the art adviser who steers their collections in the right direction.

Will this gorgeous brute of a machine be the next Maserati to compete in a monomarque series?

Yesterday at Monza, Maserati introduced the GranTurismo MC Concept, expected to be its next Maserati GT racing car. Developed by the Maserati Style Centre as a racing version of the GranTurismo S, introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in March of this year. Maserati maintain that the improvments made to the GranTurismo's aerodynamics and performance have not altered its elegant and curvaceous line.

Weight has been reduced, and the engine mapping, and intake and exhaust systems have all been modified for increased performance. The 4.7-litre V8 engine now produces 450 bhp and 376 lb/ft of torque. A new frontal splitter and two large air intakes have been added to the radiator grille, plus a new bonnet with a dynamic air inlet and two additional air vents. More air vents have been added to the sides, linked to new "miniskirts" on the door sills. The front wings and boot spoiler have both been modified.

Upgraded brakes, a lightened and stiffened chassis and changed suspension settings all add to the racing capability of the concept. It also receives an FIA-approved integral roll cage, and a new set of 18-inch front and rear wheels with racing slicks.

The GranTurismo MC Concept was tested during the summer by Vitaphone FIA GT team driver Andrea Bertolini and will be made available for sale to privateers wishing to race in GT3 or GT4 classes.

"Hi Enrico,

Hope all is well in the UK.
