Maserati is celebrating the 95th anniversary of its racing debut with commemorative editions of its Levante SUV and Ghibli sedan.

On April 25, 1926, company founder Alfieri Maserati won the 1500cc class in the formidable Targa Florio race with the Tipo 26 – “the first racing car to wear the trident on its bonnet”.

This victory paved the way for Maserati’s long and successful career in motorsport, which will soon be resurrected after a several-year hiatus with the racing derivatives of the new MC20 supercar.

To celebrate 95 years in top motorsport, Maserati has revealed a heritage-inspired F Tributo trim set for the 2021 Ghibli and Levante.

Available in a choice of Rosso Tributo Red or Azzurro Tributo Blue, the Special Editions “evoke the bold spirit of Maserati” with “seductive” exterior styling.

The yellow brake calipers and wheel lips refer to the distinctively colored 250F racing model that Juan Manual Fangio raced with in Maserati’s 1954 F1 debut, with a similar color scheme applied to the seams of the interior upholstery. .

The Levante F Tributo sits on 21-inch ‘Anteo’ wheels in a gloss black finish, while the Ghibli receives a set of similarly sized ‘Titano’ rims. Bespoke black badges are featured on each wheel arches, while the Trident logo on the C-pillar is color-coded.

Pricing has yet to be confirmed, nor details of a launch in the UK or mainland Europe. The special editions were revealed at the Shanghai auto show, and Maserati has yet to say whether the duo will be available outside of China.
