This year, as you may know, Maserati is celebrating its 100th anniversary. T mark the occasion they have done a number of things including launching special edition models and making commemorative goods such as this very special watch. The coolest part of these celebrations, however, was Maserati Centennial Gathering organized around Italy.
The magnificent tour attracted more than 200 Maserati owners from all over the world who drove in a convoy all the way from Modena to Turin, visiting some of the most historic sites with significant importance to Maserati along the way.
One of these historic sites was the San Martino del Lago circuit near Cremona where on 28 September 1929, at the wheel of the 16-cylinder Maserati V4, Baconin Borzacchini set the first world record in Maserati’s history by achieving 264 km/h.
The third and final day of the Centennial Gathering was focused around Turin, with the final section of the regularity competition and the climb to the majestic Basilica of Superga, the historic 300 year old church that towers over the city. A tour of the car maker’s production facilities wrapped up the amazing Maserati Centennial Gathering with a promise that the 200th anniversary is going to be even better!
