The annual Goodwood Revival brings together some of the world’s most iconic classic and vintage cars with emphasis on motorsport. When we’re talking about vintage motor racing the name that comes up most is Maserati, and sure enough, they had a magnificent display at this year’s event.
2014 Goodwood Revival event saw some truly legendary Maserati race cars including the single-seater Maserati Tipo 420 M 58 ‘Eldorado’, raced by Sir Stirling Moss in the 1958 Monza 500, 1961 3500 GT Vignale Spyder and a 1969 Ghibli Tipo AM115.
The old boys were joined by Maserati’s contemporary models including GranCabrio MC and new Ghibli executive saloon. It was kind of sad to realize the Italian brand is more concerned with production volume and sales figure these days than making super and racing cars that would one day become legends. But hey, it’s all about survival in today’s cruel marketplace.
The absolute highlight of Goodwood Revival 2014 for Maserati was the 250F which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, 16 examples of the legendary race car were assembled for the event and a large number took part in high speed demonstrations followed by a 15 minute race.
