Quote of the Week!

From by Tripp Mateschitz, Lawn Tennis Correspondent.


"Where her sister, Venus Williams' game might be a Ferrari, more flashy and nice to look at, Serena's game could be a Maserati: overall more powerful and more solid under the hood."

From Enrico in the UK

Whilst browsing through the Maserati items listed on eBay, I came across this interesting lot. A Maserati Biturbo Liquid-to-Air Intercooler by Spearco.

This Maserati Biturbo Liquid-to-Air Intercooler setup is described as the most significant, single performance improvement that one could add to a carburatted Biturbo.


The Liquid-to-Air Intercooler by Spearco

"Hello Enrico,

The Liquid-Air-Intercooler will boost the horsepower of a 1983-1986 Biturbo from 187 bhp to 205 bhp and the torque from an already impressive 205 lbs/ft to a whopping 260 lbs/ft! This is what made the 1985 Biturbo 'E' the third fastest non-gray market in 1985. In fact, the liquid-to-Air intercoolers made the 1985 Biturbo 'E' and will make your carburatted Biturbo faster than the 1987 Maserati, fuel injected, Biturbo Si. I know because I own both models and it's based on Maserati's specifications. Please read the attached article from Road and Track.

Sure. I would be honored. I do visit your website two or three times a week. Keep up the great work.

I have attached a graphic illustration of the liquid-to-air intercooler components. This a page is from the installation instructions that are included in the auction.

From Gert in Belgium

Gert has kindly sent me these photos of the extremely encouraging turnout for the first meeting organised by this group of Belgian Maserati enthusiasts.

Looking at the numbers who attended, I would say it was a very successful meeting, but at the same time, I couldn't help thinking that holding a first meeting at a drinks distillery was an inspired choice!

The event was supported by Garage VAN STEENKISTE, a local Maserati dealer, and taking into account the dealer's cars and the enthusiasts who couldn't stay too long, a total of 41 Maseratis took part;

7x 3200 GT
1x Biturbo Spyder
3x Coupé
2x Ghibli
1x Ghibli SS
2x GranSport
1x GranSport MC Victory
6x GranTurismo
7x GranTurismo S
7x Quattroporte
and a Shamal!

"I enjoyed the initiative and was very happy to finally see the GranSport in Fuji Bianco! I have it as a model car and have seen it before on photos but in real life it is so much nicer!!!

It was not hard to convince my girlfriend to buy one within a few years.

From Enrico in the UK

"Ciao Maseratisti,

I thought you might find these images interesting, they were sent to me by an enthusiast here in the UK. These tyres are made in South Carolina, USA. THEY ARE SEE-THROUGH TYRES - The Michelin Tweel® tyre"

"A radical new tyre design by Michelin, and what loks like the next generation of tyres. They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show.

Yes, those are "spoke" like connections to the inner part of the tyre from the outside tread "wrap!" The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion....

Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn't it?

These tyres are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon. The bad news for law enforcement is that spike strips will not work on these. Just think of the impact on existing technology:

A. no more air valves...
B. no more air compressors at gas stations...
C. no more repair kits...
D. no more flats...
These are actual pictures taken in the South Carolina plant of Michelin."

"Dear Enrico,

A heartfelt Happy, Healthy New Year with many thanks for maintaining your fantastic site.

I wanted to let you know that the good people at Hemmings Motor News (the US bible for those of us with a penchant for old cars) are planning a New England Concours d’Elegance on the third week-end in July at Stratton Mountain in Vermont.

The featured marque will be Maserati!

This is a great meet organized by true car nuts. More information could probably be obtained by going to

From Onno in Belgium

"Hello Enrico,

Today, the first event of a new Maserati Meeting took place in Deinze, Belgium.

Maseratisti enjoyed a drink at Filliers Distillery; a Belgian producer of Fruit Jenevers - After the reception, a short guided tour of the distillery was organized.

Please find enclosed some pictures. A lot of modern cars, but also some older ones (a Shamal, a Ghibli SS and some Ghibli IIs).



P.S.: I hope to finish the restoration of my Ghbili 1970 before the summer."

The Goodwood Breakfast Club 2009


Continuing the huge popularity of the Goodwood Breakfast Club, the themes and timings for these Sunday morning special networking events can now be announced for the 2009 season.

As in previous years - and with a couple of exceptions - the majority of the Goodwood Breakfast Club meetings in 2009 will be held on the first Sunday of the month at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex. However, new for this year will be a couple of additional Breakfast Club meetings, to be held on the last Sunday of June and August, so as not to clash with the preparations for the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed (being held on 3-5 July) and the Goodwood Revival (18-20 September). A new December meeting has also been added to the schedule with a festive theme, including a Christmas market full of stalls selling authentic and appealing gifts.

Sunday Date and Theme:

1 March: ‘Mini Mayhem – for all Small Sporting Runabouts’

Attracting: Celebrating everything from the original Mini to the archetypal hot hatch and modern Supermini, plus RV sporting light aircraft.

5 April: ‘Fabulous Family Favourites – from Fords to Flaminias’

Attracting: Any practical collector’s car with room for all the family, plus four-seater and fixed gear aircraft.

3 May: ‘Everything But The Car – from Bikes and Buses to Tractors and Trucks’

Attracting: All forms of motorised transport except conventional passenger cars. Motorcycles, scooters, three-wheelers, campers, light and heavy commercial vehicles, off-road workhorses, other utility vehicles and even aircraft are all welcome – nothing is too bizarre!

7 June: ‘Supercar Sunday – the Ultimate Performance Machines’

Attracting: Mouth-watering (and mostly mid-engined!) ultimate performance cars and exotic superbikes, plus aerobatic aircraft.

28 June*: ‘Performance Car Legends – post-1970 Driver’s Cars’

Attracting: Sports and GT cars from the 1970s to the present day, from Jensen Interceptor to Ariel Atom, as well as Lotus, Caterham, TVR, Porsche and many more, plus retractable aircraft.

5 July: No Breakfast Club

Not held due to Goodwood Festival of Speed

2 August: ‘Soft Top Sunday ­– a Taste of the British Summer’

Attracting: Roofless cars of all ages, shapes and sizes, plus all open cockpit aircraft.

30 August*: ‘Thoroughbred Sunday – the Quintessential Classic Car and Motorcycle’

Attracting: Any pre-1966 road vehicle or aircraft in the spirit of Goodwood circuit’s golden days.

6 September: No Breakfast Club

Not held due to Goodwood Revival preparations

4 October: ‘Maserati Magnifica – a Tribute to the Trident and other Italian Icons’

Attracting: For all Maseratis and any other Italian collector’s vehicles, from a Lambretta to a Lamborghini, plus Continental aircraft.

1 November: ‘Souped-up Sunday – Modified and Custom Vehicles of all Ages’

Attracting: Everything from hot rods and custom cars to contemporary urban cruisers, plus home-built aircraft.

6 December: ‘Breakfast Club Christmas Cracker’
