From Bruno in Italy

"Ciao Enrico,

Ecco le foto della mia Maserati Ghibli II al 46° Trofeo Vallecamonica Hill Climb.

Nella prima gara ho fatto 5'00.19, e nella seconda 4'54.16.

La mia Ghibli ormai ha motore e posteriore (differenziale e bracci ) del Ghibli Open Cup. Davanti abbiamo un modernissimo doppio braccio con mozzi Maserati 3200GT e freni Ferrari. Motore monta turbine maggiorate, collettori di scarico in titanio e modernissima centralina EFI EURO 6 con sistema multi mappe, traction control, anti-lag system e launch control.

Voglio portare al massimo livello di prestazioni e affidabilità la Ghibli e poi venderla per costruire un'altra Maserati da hill climb.




"Ciao Enrico,

Here are the phpotos of my Maserati Ghibli II at the 46th Trofeo Vallecamonica Hill Climb.

On the first run I clocked 5'00.19, and on the second 4'54.16.

My Ghibli now has the engine and rear end (differential and trailing arms) of a Ghibli Open Cup. Maserati 3200GT front shock absorbers and suspension arms with Ferrari brakes. The engine has larger turbochargers, titanium exhaust manifolds and the latest EFI EURO 6 control unit with self mapping system, traction control, anti-lag system and launch control.

I want to take the Ghibli to its highest level of performance and reliability, and then sell it to construct another Maserati for hill climbing.

From Christian in Switzerland

"Dear Enrico,

With a heavy heart I have to sell one of my Maseratis; it's a model 430.4v from 1993.

Can you please publish the pictures as well as the text on your Enthusiast's Pages ?

Since it is a rare car I ask for SFr 4,000.-- or Euro 4,000.--

Thank you very much - best,

Christian from Basel."

Max Girardo confirmed as Master of Ceremonies alongside Chief Judge and five-times Le Mans Winner Derek Bell MBE

• Three exciting new entries confirmed including multi award-winning Maserati A6 GCS Berlinetta - the only one remaining in authentic condition, third of four ever made

• 1957 BMW 507 entered by BMW UK from heritage fleet and ex-Rothschild 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider

• Classic car authority, Max Girardo, announced to lead proceedings as Master of Ceremonies

• Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance on Thursday 1st September at Blenheim Palace. Tickets available here

Now in its 11th year and firmly established as the UK’s most prestigious classic car competition, this year’s Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance, which opens on Thursday 1st September at Blenheim Palace, will showcase an awe-inspiring collection of some of the rarest and most valuable classic cars and motorcycles. Highly respected classic car expert and auctioneer, Max Girardo, will be hosting the Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance for the first time.

Sheer beauty in its sporting simplicity

Entries confirmed in the 65-car strong line-up include the stunning Pinin Farina-bodied 1954 Maserati A6 GCS Berlinetta, the third of just four cars built and the only one remaining in completely authentic, original condition. This particular car, which was exhibited at the Autosalon Paris in 1954 and competed in the Mille Miglia the following year, was awarded Best of Show earlier this year at Concorso d’Eleganza, Villa D’Este.

BMW UK will enter the Wind in your Hair class with its stunning, fully restored 1957 BMW 507 roadster, which currently resides in its heritage fleet. The car has been meticulously restored and retains most of its original features, including matching hard-top, which was sourced at great cost since all the hand-built hard-tops were paired with each car at the factory.

The Salon Privé organisers are thrilled to announce that classic car expert and accomplished auctioneer Max Girardo will be overseeing the event acting as Master of Ceremonies, alongside five-times Le Mans legend, Derek Bell MBE who remains as Chief Judge. Max, who has over two decades’ experience in the classic car industry, most recently founding his own West London-based dealership, Girardo & Co., will be introducing 65 extremely rare cars and 20 exceptional motorbikes to enthusiasts and guests attending the annual Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance competition.

“I am delighted to be involved with Salon Privé this year,” said Master of Ceremonies for 2016, Max Girardo. “Over the past decade Salon Privé has established itself as one of the world’s leading concours and specialist car events, and there is some stunning machinery on show at Blenheim Palace this September. It’s a genuine honour to be asked to present the concours cars on judging day, particularly given the exceptional quality on display. Cars like the Villa d’Este-winning Maserati A6 GCS and the Ferrari 500 TR Spyder are amongst the finest cars to be shown anywhere in the world."

Among other confirmed entries in this year’s event, is a beautiful 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider. With less than 10% of all of the V12-powered Ferrari 365 Daytonas leaving the Maranello factory gates as Spider variants, the Daytona Spider is a rare car to be seen publicly, especially in its recently restored condition.

The Spider on display at next month’s event is a one-of-eighteen European-specification left-hand-drive example. Delivered new in Italy, the car spent a vast amount of its time in America, as it was sold by North American Racing Team founder and Ferrari dealer Luigi Chinetti. It now resides in Europe, having been owned by The Honourable Nathaniel Rothschild in Switzerland and currently completes part of the Fica Frio collection.

A Maserati 3500 GTI

"Dear Enrico,

As the restoration of my 3500 GTI, #AM 101*1988*, is now completed, I thought I would send a photo for your register.

Craig's magnificent Maserati 3500 GTI

This shot was taken by a young Swiss photographer, Daniel Zizka.

The car was restored over two and a half years by Paul de Turris and his team at DTR Sports Cars in Surrey, and I am delighted with the outcome.

Keep up the good work with the site !



From Hisato in Japan
MCJ Midi Touring

"Dear Enrico,

I hope everything going well.

The Maserati Club of Japan is located in Tokyo and one branch exists in Osaka (MCJ West).

Even though Japan is not as wide as the whole of Europe or the United states, but it is sometimes difficult to join events every time from both sides of the country.

The MCJ has now established the Maserati Club of Japan "Midi" as a branch of MCJ to enable more activities to enjoy Maseratis in each area. "Midi" means the central area of Japan, located at Nagoya.

We had a "Touring" as the first official event of MCJ "Midi" on 25th and 26th June.

17 Maseratis came together for this event from near Nagoya, Tokyo and Kyusyu (South area of Japan !?).

Actually a Quattoroporte III was coming to join the us from Aomori (Noth area of Japan), unfortunately he had trouble on the way and could not join us.

Many of "old" Biturbos participated to this touring and it lead us to imagine the event in 90's.

The participants are listed below:

Spyder; 5 vehicles
Biturbo 2.5; 1 vehicle
Karif; 1 vehicle
Quatroporte III; 1 vehicle
Ghibli II; 1 vehicle
Ghibli Cup; 1 vehicle
3200 GT; 3 vechiles
Coupe; 1 vehicle
GranSport; 1 vehicle
GranTurismo; 1 vehicle
Ghibli III; 1 vehicle

A total of 17 vehicles.

It is the rainy season in Japan and all particitants worried about the weather, actually the rain had passed by early morning, and it was good day for driving Maseratis, especially nice weather for Spyders with no rain qand not too hot.

We met at a parking lot near Hamamatsu in Shizuoka and on to lunch at the restaurant "Yu no Kaze HAZU" in Aichi.

This resutaurant is located in the good hot spring area surrounded by beautiful nature. We enjoyed a good Japanese lunch and relaxed at the hot springs.

We then drove the winding roads, highway and country roads around the Hamana lake with taking a video. After we arrived the Irago view hotel, everyone enjoyed the nice ocean view from the hot springs.

MCJ Midi was officially announced in MCJ at the dinner party. Mr. Sugiura, Mr, Hayakawa and myself will lead the activity of MCJ Midi.

There are nice Italian meal, nice ocean view and nice video from the last Maserati Day in Japan and the 'Centennial' gathering in Italy.

Mr. Ekko gave us the presentation of the latest Maserati in Italy, and three Mille Miglia participants gave us a talk about their experiences from this year's race. This enjoyable time continued till midnight...

The plan for the second day was just to take a picture with all participants and leave the hotel early to avoid any traffic jams on the way back to Tokyo. Actually after taking the picture, all participants chatted for more than two hours at the parking lot.

It was very nice time and my trips to Japan will incerase more frequently....

Best regards,

A Maserati Quattroporte III
From Werner in Germany

"Dear Enrico,

Yesterday, 10th July, we held the "Maserati Day 2016" at Frankfurt - Klassikstadt. More then 110 classic and new Maseratis participated.

For the first time, I know we had three Ghibli "Primatist" together.

Many more classic cars, like Sebring, Mistral, Bora, Merak, Shamal, etc., came to Frankfurt.

Best Regards,

La Martina, the prestigious supplier of technical polo equipment and luxury lifestyle clothing and official supplier of the Maserati Team, has partnered with the luxury car manufacturer to further strengthen the relationship of the two brands. To mark this leg of the tour, La Martina released a limited edition polo shirt – the Anatomic Sport, of which only 300 will be available.

Enrico Roselli, La Martina CEO, said: “It is a fantastic opportunity to host a third prestigious world polo tour match in the UK alongside Maserati, and at the same time continue to further grow our relationship with another like-minded brand that also contains such magnificent heritage.”

"Dear Enrico,

I am an amateur photographer with a love of 1950's Italian cars, the pictures may be used or published as you wish, I use the name 'Tripos Media' when photos are published, so it would be nice if that is used.

I have other pictures of Maseratis in my files, and I could sort through if there was something you wanted. I first saw Maseratis racing in 1951, and have always loved them. Great cars with a great history.

Thank you for running your site, it is amazing.

Kind regards,
