From Gerhard in Switzerland

Gerhard has very kindly sent me more photos of his Quattroporte I 2a serie. Thank you Gerhard!!

"Hello Enrico,

Thank you very much, the book has arrived today and in perfect shape! I have attached some more photos of the rallye I took part in in 2001. It's the "Raid Suisse Paris" (you can have a look at, it's in English as well) which leads from Basel in Switzerland through the French countryside to Paris, includes good food and a bit of sightseeing (wine-cellars, castles, and the like). The Rallye is held in August this year, featured marque is ...Maserati. In 2001, featured marque was Porsche, with about 30 Porsche participating so, hopefully, this year will brim with Maseratis!

Owning a Maserati 430


"I've owned a 1989, 100,000 mile 430 for two years now. It's been to the South of France three times and covers around 8,000 miles per year. I haven't been brave enough to work out the real running costs, but, having owned a number of 'interesting' cars, I can say that the 430 is definitely one of the more reliable.

I have worked out the costs of improvements/repairs which I have done, and can say that IF you are CAREFUL about where you source your spares, the costs are reasonable - indeed comparable to any other older car. (eg. Maserati oil filter = GB £12.50, Vauxhall Carlton =GB £4.00: Timing Belt from A********* Maserati = GB £28.00, motor factor (same part no.) GB £13.00).

The electrics are very Italian but the mechanics are well engineered and easy to work on, by and large. The parts book is very useful and the web is an asset.

If it cost twice as much, it'd still be a lot of very quick car. The performance still takes my breath away at times; the comfort is good over long journeys and I reckon the fuel costs are worth the experience.


Maserati on rails

Over a five week period, a group of motoring journalists from all around the world, visited the new plant in Modena, and aquainted themselves with the prestigious new saloon from the Casa del Tridente. They then boarded a specially prepared Trenitalia Eurostar, sporting Maserati colours, to Florence where, on a circuit somewhere between Saint Gimignano and Siena, they road tested the new Quattroporte. All guests aboard the train were presented with a commemerative model of the Eurostar painted in this special livery.

- How long before they're up for sale on eBay ???


Ferrari-Maserati and Trenitalia in perfect harmony !!
From Howard in Australia

"Hi Enrico,

I have a 3500 GT and am trying to determine how many of these were produced in right-hand drive. I know of a least 2 that were imported into Australia.

As you will probably realise the engine is offset in the chassis to clear the steering box, and to have right-hand drive is a unique set up compared to the left-hand drive models.

Do you have access the numbers that were produced?

Hope you can help.

Yours sincerely,



Howard Ring's beautiful right-hand drive 3500 GT.
From Claudio in Italy

"Ciao Enrico, it's Claudio.

In the attached images are a few photographs taken on the Masertati stand at the Geneva Motor Show.

The chap in the photographs is my friend Simone who accompanied me. He works for FIAT Auto SpA and has tested the new Quattroporte.

Hope to see you at one of our meetings soon.

Ciao Claudio.

From Steven in Belgium

"Hello Enrico,

I was a few days in France last February, and look what a beautiful Ghibli I saw in Pierrefonds !... Even more astonishing in that "décor", don't you think ? I send you another picture of the other side of that road too, so you can see the whole fairy tale scenery !

I hope you enjoy the picture.

You were kind enough to publish the brief story of the construction of our replica Tipo 60 Birdcage on your site, and we are happy to see that the article still remains.
