Italian luxury and flair. Written by Martin Buckley, 176 pages with 240 most coloured illustrations, size: 277 x 217 mm, binding: hardcover with book jacket, language: French
For much of its existence Maserati has remained in the shadow of Ferrari, its near neighbor in Modena, Italy. Little of worth has been published about the marque, but now Martin Buckley, a dedicated Maserati fan, puts that right with this detailed, colorful, passionate review of Maserati's production cars. Starting with the early 2-litre six-cylinder road cars of the period 1946-57, he moves on to the bigger and faster models that followed. The 3500 series, 5000GT, Quattroporte, Ghibli and Indy, Bora and Merak, Khamsin, Quattroporte II and III, and Kyalami - a glorious bloodline that lasted from the 1950s to the 1980s. The Biturbo that followed saw a downturn in Maserati's fortunes, but a modern revival is well and truly underway.
