From David in the UK

"Hi Enrico,

Both doors on my 2003 Spyder started showing rust on the very bottom of the door, opposite end to the hinge.

When I checked inside the door I found that there is a drainage slot just above where the skin is folded over under the base of the door.

Result; any water that has got into the door at the window, drains out and into the seam where it sits and rust follows.

Any Spyder owner (and Coupe ?) may want to seal the seam with some grease. Make sure any sitting water has evaporated first.

For any Spyder owner with a steering wheel where the leather bubbles when humid.

I work with leather, and I think that the cause is that a water based adhesive has been used. If the leather has got wet, it's dissolved the adhesive. Leather goes very loose when only slightly damp so that's why it bubbles.

To dry the leather, I use a wheat bag (sold for backache) which is heated in the microwave then hung over the affected area.

It's only a temporary solution, but it makes the car look nicer when you're driving it.

Hope this helps someone.

"Hi Enrico,

This year, Dave and I took up Silverstone's special offer "weekend ticket" ( entry for two for the price of one ), and that together with entry to the inner circuit parking organised by the Maserati Club UK ( well worth becoming a member for this opportunity alone ! ) made for a wonderful weekend.

This year the event celebrated "50 Years of the Jaguar E-Type", but never mind, the Club area was once again well supported with Maseratis of all ages. My Merak SS, which incidently is still available for sale, was in good company.

It all added up to another great weekend at the Silverstone Classic 2011, centred on the Maserati Club’s stand and display. Over the three days there were slightly more cars on display than last year. Pride of place in front of the members’ stand was given to: an A6G/54 Zagato Coupe, a Barchetta, and a 200S.

Not so many Maseratis out racing on the circuit this year – but the quality was still there! 2x A6GCS, 2x 300S, T61 Birdcage, 250F, 6CM, 8CM, Cooper-Maserati T51, Cooper-Maserati T61P ‘Monaco’, A6GCM. The 250F did best with 3rd place in the pre-1961 HGPCA race, driven by Allan Miles. Michael O’Shea came in with a 9th place in his Cooper-Maserati T61P ‘Monaco’ in the Italian Historic and Sportscar Cup.

Thanks go to my fellow Club members for organizing the Club stand and the weekend.

Best regards,

The Maserati GranCabrio Fendi designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi was born from the union of two iconic brands of the made in Italy, which share common values such as craftsmanship and tradition.

A masterpiece of technology and craftsmanship, the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi will be introduced at the Frankfurt MotorShow in September 2011.

The Maserati GranCabrio Fendi is crafted at the historical Maserati headquarters in Modena, with exclusive materials bespokely created in various colours for this project.

The three-layered body colour named Grigio Fiamma Fendi is a special dark grey with an iridescent golden finish on the surface. The wood trim Pergamena Fendi runs across the width of the dashboard, on the doors and on the top of the gear lever, all in the iconic FENDI yellow, like the brake callipers and the embroidered yellow trident on the headrests.

Adding a stronger yet elegant character to the GranCabrio is FENDI’s unmistakable double F-logo, stitched on the seat, also appearing in the centre of the 20-inch Trident design alloy wheels, and the FENDI logo along the rocker panel.

Cuoio Romano, Fendi’s most precious leather of its Selleria line, has been used for such details as the instrument cluster cover, for the gear lever and for the profiles of the floor mats. It also features in the Limited Edition Travel Set of luggage and accessories.

The Maserati GranCabrio Fendi represents a perfect marriage between the art of a handmade product with the ultimate technology and research of its 4.7-litre V8 engine coupled with automatic transmission, which brings out to life a unique roar, music to the ears of car connoisseurs.

Silvia Venturini Fendi’s specially crafted logo seals this collaboration. A silver oval plaque with the engraving of the Maserati trident, Fendi logo and the 5-digit series number (five being an iconic number for Fendi) is located on the dashboard, in front of the passenger seat, and on both sides of the black cloth folding roof.

A special black car cover with a ton-sur-ton double F logo dresses the GranCabrio, hiding this marvellous secret from indiscreet eyes until the very last moment.

Great news. Just to let you know, that after a restoration project that has taken some three and a half years, I am delighted to have my Ghibli back on the road again.

Please find attached a few photos of "La mia bellissima macchina!" taken in the beautiful surrounding of Tervuren Park in Brussels.

All the best.


P.S.: Those pictures of the Royale on page 218 are the best ever. I just love that bar!"

From Michael in Finland

"Dear Enrico,

Over the years I have always enjoyed, and still do, your great site.

It has probably helped hundreds or even thousands of Maserati enthusiasts since you have started it.

This time I have to tell about a problem which is unsolved:

I have a Quattroporte I from 1967 (AM 107*1344*) with an ignition system from a Quattroporte III.

Problem is that the ignition spark is too poor. This is probably due to a wrong series resistor(s).

Does anybody have a wiring diagram ??

Please find enclosed 3 images of my DIVA.

Best regards,



Michael's DIVA, the Quattroporte Tipo 107



Hi Michael,

Thank you for your email.

From Arnd in Germany

"Hello Enrico,

I send you some pictures of my Maserati Royale. Built 1990, only one owner, 62,000 km.

The gold-plated silver beakers are very nice.

Greetings from Germany,


"Dear Arnd,

Thank you so much for your email.

You have a very nice example, complimenti !

I have read about those beakers, but have never seen them before.

Thank you for taking the trouble to photograph your splendid Quattroporte in detail.

I am sure that many enthusiasts will enjoy them, I certainly have.

All the very best to you,


P.S. It may interest you to know that a total of 53 Royales were built between 1987 and 1990, of which only 9 were fitted with manual transmission.

7 in 1987, 26 in 1988, 11 in 1989 and 9 in 1990."
