Maserati stole the show at last week’s Salon Privé, the luxury super car show held for the second year at the exclusive Hurlingham Club in London.

Among the modern supercars, the new Maserati GranTurismo, displayed alongside two Maserati Quattroportes, created a lot of excitement, while Jay Kay’s stunning Black Maserati A6 G54 won the overall Grand Prix in the Concours d’Elégance, as well as the prize for best GT.

Speaking after the awards, Jay Kay said “I don’t feel like I deserve this. I didn’t make it, Pietro Frua designed it and Maserati made it – I just drive the pretty girl!”

He was awarded his prizes by Concours Head Judge and renowned racing driver, Alain de Cadenet and supermodel Jodie Kidd.

Over £70,000 was pledged during the course of the event to the nominated charities, Tommy’s, Dreamchasing, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Cancer Research UK.

Organisers Andrew and David Bagley commented, “We were delighted with many aspects of Salon Privé this year, however not wanting to rest on our laurels, next year will see a wider variety of super and luxury cars, a much bigger Concours d’Elégance, a fuller display of top-end luxury brands, not to mention the very finest in super yachts and motor yachts. If this year’s guests thought Salon Privé was a truly unique experience, all we can say is, wait until next year. Our charity aims are to raise over £100,000 for the supported charities next year.”

"Ciao Maseratisti,

Thought you might like to see this print illustrating an exploded view of the Maserati Tipo 250F taken from 'Scienza Illustrata' (that's 'Science Illustrated' in Italian!!).




From Ben in Denmark

"Hi Enrico,

Here are some pictures from a small Maserati meet, which we had north of Copenhagen last weekend. It's been a very wet summer and we were lucky to only hit one rain cloud during our drive.

We were the following:

1963 5000 GT Allemano ( stayed in the garage and did not get wet )
1971 Ghibli 4,9 SS ( stayed in garage and did not get wet....still for sale in your classic section! )
1971 Ghibli 4,9 SS
Indy America
Ghibli GT
3200 GTA
Coupé Cambiocorsa

When the weather gets nicer, we'll do another one and hopefully get more cars to participate. There is supposed to be close to 80 Maseratis in Denmark, although the ones listed here are basically the only ones active in the "Maserati Club".




The 'small' but very enthusiastic gathering in Denmark!

From Maciek in Poland

"Hi Enrico!

Did you not receive my mail from 25th June ?

We were in France, between 6 and 8 July, at Festival Automobile in Mulhouse with two cars, an MG WA and our Maserati.

Here is one picture as attachment with Maserati at speed in Mulhouse. On a whole event was over 500 cars, but only one Maserati. Among others, we won a competition with our MG WA for a best classic car. And the Maserati was admired by many, many people.

"Hi Maciek,

No, I didn't receive your email.

Recently I have had problems with my emails. When my server finally sorted out my problem, I had 2,412 emails come through at once. Most of them were repeats but I had to delete them 'en masse'.

How are you?




"Ok, here is again my mail from 25th June.

So, our Maserati is fully drivable and ready for this season. I am very thankful - your web site help me a lot in this hard resto project.

Now, we driven over 1,600 kilometers. Last our car was featured in a biggest Polish magazine for classic and old cars - see attached picture.

Car is nice to drive, even at high speed (200 kph at 4800 RPM). For a winter time I was left some minor jobs, like finish ventilation system or make new front wheel arch covers.

Best greetings!

Forthcoming event here in the UK

The Graypaul display always promises something "a little bit special!!"

The grounds of Stanford Hall near Lutterworth in Leicestershire will once again be the picturesque setting for this year's Graypaul Maserati Club Concours D'Elegance.


Maseratis at the Graypaul Maserati Club Concours D'Elegance

This year the backdrop for the Maserati Club area will be Stanford Hall, built in the late Seventeenth century it is one of the finest examples of architecture from the William and Mary period.


All types of Maseratis are welcome at this Maserati Club event

The event is an ideal opportunity for Maserati owner's to display their cars alongside fellow owners and enthusiasts. Whilst the concours itself is only open to Maserati Club members, all Maserati owners will be made welcome and a special parking area has been reserved, providing you turn up in a Maserati of course! It's an ideal opportunity to join in what is probably the greatest yearly gathering of Maseratis here in the UK.


It's the ideal opportunity to meet up with old friends, and make a few new ones too!!

Why not come along and meet fellow enthusiasts and chat about your experiences and problems, if any, with like minds!


Last year there were over 100 Maseratis on display.
We want to see a lot more this year, so come along and join us!!

The event is scheduled for Sunday the 19th of August with gates opening at 9:00 am. There is an entrance charge of £10 for adults, whilst children aged between 3-14 get in for only £1.


The following extract is taken from "Coulthard gets a blast from the past" by Jonathan Noble.

But despite reminiscing about the past, Coulthard admits that he would not have enjoyed driving the cars of yesteryear.

"I drove a 250 Maserati around Goodwood, and it was possibly the most frightening experience of driving I have had in my career.

You had no seat belt and you sat with your legs wide open because you had the drive train between your legs. I felt like I was going to a gynaecologist!

Plus the gear level was down near my ankle and the steering was huge. The drivers must have been a strange shape in those days.

Then the car had lots of power and no downforce, so the braking distance was long. It was exciting, but I felt quite vulnerable. There were no seat belts and the roll over cage body!"

Now I am not out to offend any passionate Maserati Biturbo owners out there, after all I own a Biturbo derivative myself, but I couldn't help being amused when I spotted an article entitled '24 Hours of LeMons' on the web site.

Only to often in life we take our classics too seriously, so it comes as a great relief when motoring enthusiasts take part in an event that promotes motorsport competition with a real sense of humour. The 24 Hours of LeMons is one such event.

It is promoted by as; "Nasty. Brutish. Not Short Enough", and few would argue with that. They go on to add; "The crowd. The spectacle. The pall of blue smoke and roasted clutch discs. In all motorsport, no event captures the universal human need to whale on old crapcans and hoover down greasy barbecue like the 24 Hours of LeMons.

Each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of 500 US dollars or less. But before reaching the grid, you'll have to survive trials like the Personal-Injury-Lawyer Anti-Slalom, the Marxist-Valet Parking Challenge, and the Wide Open Throttle Rodthrowapalooza. Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. At the end of 24 hours, a gala awards ceremony plies the survivors with trophies, plaques, and four-figure purses in canvas bags full of nickels. What's not to like?"

I think they've summed-up this event perfectly!

I would like to thank John Neff of Autoblog for granting me permission to publish the following photos, taken by Damon Lavrinc, of the sole Maserati Biturbo that took part in last weekend's event.

You can see more of the participants in Autoblog's '24 Hours of LeMons - The Contenders Gallery' at and live commentary, including pictures, at

You've got to laugh!!

Just had a look at your updates and noticed that the previous pictures of my car have mysteriously disappeared. I have attached a few alternative photos of my Vignale Spyder.

I have owned the car for 16 years and it has been totally restored. I also have the factory-fitted hard top for it.
















"Un vero gioiello per adornare le strade!"

Sunday 23rd September 2007 – Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire

As autumn closes in, this is an end-of-season opportunity for Italian car owners, enthusiasts and club members to get together at the most popular motoring venue in the Midlands. In addition to the extensive display of Italian cars, there is plenty more to see and do… Visit the Heritage Trust Collection (enhanced with lottery funding), take a ride on the demanding off-road course or enjoy family karting fun.

A main attraction is the chance to drive on Aston Martin’s Motor Research Test Track. Last year Italian car owners experienced high-speed pace car runs on the superb 3.5-mile circuit.

The Heritage Motor Centre is near Junction 12 on the M40.

From John in the UK

"Dear Enrico,

As mentioned before, the Tourist Trophy needed to be updated and now it has returned to the Royal Automobile Club with the 2007 winners engraved. So, as you see, a little more motor racing history has been recorded for future automotive researchers and our descendants, with the Maserati marque now appearing for a second time, together with the names of Biagi & Salo added to those of Bartels & Bertolini.

Best wishes & regards,
