Maserati has a rich racing history. Now two new special edition models help celebrate that heritage.
The package adds some visual enhancments that help make the models distinct, and give them a touch of sport SUV personality.
F Tributo Special Edition name has meaning. The F stands for Argentinian Race driver Juan Manuel Fangio, who raced with Maserati and added many trophies to the Maserati display case.
The special edition models help commemorate Fangio's victories earned in the Maserati 250F. Maserati has now been racing for 95 years. The company first took the track in 1926 with with the Tipo26, the first Maserati race car to wear the now legendary Trident logo. Maserati was victorious winning the 1,500-cc class at the Targa Florio. The driver was Alfieri Maserati.
These special edition models are available in two colors – Rosso Tributo and Azzurro Tributo. The red represents the color of Italian motorsports. In the early 20th-century Maserati racing cars were painted in that icoic red. The blue ties directly to the company's historic home in Modena, Italy.
The vehicles also feature a hint of yellow – another reference to Modena – that's used for the brake calipers and wheel accents. The Ghibli wears 21-inch Titano wheels in glossy black, while the Levante wears 21-inch black Anteo ones.
You will find an F-Tributo emblem on the fender of the special edition models. On the C-Pillars there is another nice touch: a Maserati Trident emblem in body colour.
The interiors are finely carfted with black "Pieno Fiore" leather accented with red and yellow stitching. The upgrades are all aesthetic. No actual performance upgrades are offered in these special edition models.
