Maserati in the UK

With regards to the UK market, Maserati GB ended 2007 with record sales figures: 611 cars were delivered to clients through the Official Maserati Dealer Network.

The UK is currently Maserati’s third largest market after the United States and Italy.

By the end of 2007, 238 GranTurismos were delivered to clients, and over the coming months many more customers will be taking delivery of their vehicles.

Maserati GB’s first press car was driven back from Italy by the celebrity chef James Martin, who followed a stunning route through Europe, taking in the most luxurious hotels and gastronomic delights. This is not only the preserve of celebrities, as every Maserati customer can collect their car from Maserati’s Headquarters in Modena, by requesting the factory collection when ordering their car.

In total 283 Quattroportes were delivered to customers, 85% of which were fitted with the automatic transmission, with the Quattroporte Sport GT being the most popular choice. The GranSport and the MC Victory were amongst the remaining 90 vehicles retailed in 2007.

Maserati GB’s success is a reflection on the global success that Maserati enjoyed throughout 2007. Worldwide 7353 cars were delivered to customers, an increase of 33.3% on 2006, via a network of 272 dealers in 59 countries across 5 continents.


The Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS is set to become the most popular Quattroporte version in the UK market for 2008

"Hi Enrico,

I have attached another two pictures of my Ghibli from a Hungarian meeting.

The Maserati meeting was in Northern Hungary near Salgotarjan in October 2007. You can see the picture gallery on the following link:

The photos were taken by Sanyi Sopronyi. As you can see a restored Indy was there and some Biturbo era cars, and a 4200 Coupe.

Sanyi Sopronyi would be proud if you put his photos on your website.

Thanks for your help,

"Hi Enrico,

Firstly, like everybody, I would like to congratulate you about your great site. Great info and great resource about Maserati..

I would like to tell my Maserati story.

As a mechanical engineer and a car and motorcycle enthusiast, my first love to Maserati started when I was at University. My classmate started to work in Maserati Service as a Service engineer and I happened to stop by and at least I was able to touch and explore those great cars. However for us, it was a a case of look but don't touch, although we were able to touch them and ride them in some cases. As a student it was impossible for us to reach those cars but it was very nice to sit in them touch the wooden steering wheel, hear the sound of biturbo....

10 years went by I have had always a Maserati Ghibli in my mind and randomly I searched for it. Although I found some cars for very cheap prices they were in junk condition and I lost my belief of finding the right one for me. For the last five years I was driving a 156 Alfa Romeo. Two months before I decided to buy a Porsche and keep my Alfa.

While I was searching for a Porsche, I have been poked from somewhere and with little belief again I started looking for a Maserati and look what I found. A 1997 2.8 Automatic Ghibli GT with 25,000 km on it, and in mint condition. Without any hesitation, I called the owner went to see the car. But before going there, I called my longtime friend about this car and he told me he knew the car.

After learning the credentials and getting the right info, I knew it was the one, the one I have been waiting for and dreaming about for years. I got my best friend with me and as soon as I saw the car in the garage, me and my friend we looked at each other's face and we cannot even approach the car. I told him to look at it. I was stunned. The car was brand new. I was hipnotized and I bought it even without checking it. (But I got the condition and the recent info about the car). Now I am a proud Maserati owner. And I have a bumper sticker on my Alfa that says: "My other car is a Maserati".

By the way, when my Mom saw the car, she said she would steal this car just for its "look"... Yes, that look!

I attached the pictures.

Murat from Turkey."





From Neil in New Zealand

"Hi Enrico,

Been viewing your site for several years now. Its my favourite. I can but thank you and all who contribute.

I bought my first Maserati ('89 Spyder) over 3 years ago and got a '93 Ghibli 1a 2 years ago. Both RHD 2.8's. The Ghibli's a manual and the Spyder an auto.

Both are so much fun - but different fun. I have attached photos of the Spyder being enjoyed by myself, friends and my partner Tanya at our recent club grasskhana down under in New Plymouth New Zealand. Not only great weather but great group of people who have the best social club going.

Our club, Egmont Sports Car Club, welcome all fun loving sports car owners and we enjoy monthly club nights, weekends away, Sunday runs and once a year a 10 -12 day trip around a different region of our beautiful country.

I wish you and all Maseratists out there a great 2008 and look forward to your website throughout the year. If you are a New Zealand viewer or one whos visits down under you are most welcome to make contact. My mobile is 0274 944054.

Cheers Neil."

The Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S

Did you know that to ensure incredible braking performance on their new Quattroporte Sport GT S, Maserati teamed up with Brembo to develop compressed, moulded discs -- a world first? Unlike traditional cast discs, these new cast-aluminum units maximize braking performance and feel, even in extreme conditions. New 6-piston front calipers are also included.

From Helmar in South Africa

"Hi Enrico, I wonder... if anyone is willing to try this on an old Biturbo.

I am planning to get a Maser in May, after 25 years of "waiting", and I am very keen to actually try this. You think there'll be any takers in the meantime?

Hope all is well, Enrico, and wishing you a super 2008 with lots more health, wealth and happiness!


From Roland in France


Here is a picure of my 3500 GT after sandblasting, that's quite rare to see it in this position.

I'll send more pictures when side panels will be repaired.

By the way, after a few checks on Internet, to trace the origin of the 3500 GT front suspension, I found a spare parts manual from the Jaguar MK2 where the lower and upper triangles and their attachment to the body are exactly the same.

I'll soon visit my local Jaguar dealer with my disassembled parts to verify in situation.

Could anyone confirm?

Best regards,

Maserati Quattroporte 'Collezione Cento'

To kick start 2008, Maserati has brought its flagship saloon in a super-deluxe incarnation to Detroit - the Quattroporte “Collezione Cento” - of which just 100 will be produced: comfort, technology, and luxury all rolled into one; dressed for the occasion in a sophisticated Italian outfit - in a brand-new ivory colour, with a contrasting coach line on the sides that enhances the sinuous lines of the Quattroporte. 20-inch wheels are fitted with polished rims, adding the perfect touch of sophistication and elegance. The chromed honeycomb front and side grilles also bring out the executive nature of this flagship saloon.


The Maserati Quattroporte 'Collezione Cento'

The interior is no less spectacular. Everything exudes luxury, from the Poltrona Frau “Cuoio” coloured leather seats with diamond-shaped stitching and matching buttons in the centre, to the polished Wengé wood inserts on the steering wheel, centre console and small object compartment. The mother of pearl inlays are a true delight, adding an unusual gleam to the name of the vehicle and the trident on the gear knob. Cuoio coloured leather is also used for the superior-weight overmats, enhanced by edges in contrasting Beige. The interior’s concept was exclusively presented to Maserati customers at last year’s Frankfurt Motorshow; the “Collezione Cento” has been developed on the basis of their feedback and comments.

Technology is another area where the Collezione Cento scores highly. Back seat passengers in the new Quattroporte find themselves in a multimedia paradise controlled by the Maserati Multimedia Entertainment system. The technology is housed in the rear centre armrest, which contains an AUX-IN socket, iPod docking station, SIM card port and a USB port so that passengers can view photographs, videos or listen to MP3/WMA tracks on other external devices. The car’s sound system or the special Bluetooth headsets can also be used.

The armrest also features a built-in keypad for Internet browsing and email access, which can be folded away. As image also counts, especially when it comes to luxury, there are two real eye-catchers built into the back of the front seats: two 10.4” touch screens complete with a CD/DVD player built into the back of the centre receptacle.

The 100 lucky owners will be guaranteed luxury and exclusivity, thanks to the numbered plate housed in the dashboard moulding.

The Quattroporte Collezione Cento is fitted with a 4244 cc engine (400 bhp) paired with a hydraulic automatic 6-speed transmission that guarantees the same performance as the Quattroporte Automatic range.

"Hi Enrico,

The last few months of 2007 saw me racking up a few air miles with a couple of flights to Hong Kong and also a trip to Australia.

As usual, I took my camera with me, and I've attached a few photos of Maseratis I managed to photograph during my travels, as well as some more from Tokyo....

Wishing you a happy and healthy 2008,
