F Tributo Special Editions
Maserati celebrates its racing history with the F Tributo Special Edition which arrives at dealerships in the United States and Canada this month. The Brand’s history in competition and its connection with the racing world inspired the new F Tributo Special Edition. Maserati has motorsports in its genes and power rooted in the spirit of pure competition with unprecedented wins and unrivalled achievements that are celebrated in this very limited number of F Tributo Special Editions for the US and Canada.
F for Fangio, the driver who made his mark and Tributo, meaning in homage or tribute. Maserati’s racing debut began on 25 April 1926 with the Tipo26, which won the 1,500 cc class at the Targa Florio with Alfieri Maserati at the wheel. 28 years later, on 17 January 1954, Maserati made its debut in F1 and entered the pinnacle of world motorsports with the 250F driven by Juan Manuel Fangio. An iconic partnership, crowned by many victories, which Maserati commemorates with the F Tributo Special Edition.
Available on Ghibli and Levante in two exclusive colors – Rosso Tributo and Azzurro Tributo – this special series captures Maserati’s audacious spirit in this sporty version alluring in both looks and details. Red is the color of Italian motorsports, and historically Maserati cars always raced in paintwork of this hue, which represented Italy in motor racing in the early years of the last century. The bright, vibrant blue of Azzurro Tributo, on the other hand, reminds us that blue is one of the colors (together with yellow) of the City of Modena, the Brand’s modern home.
There are further references to Fangio’s 250F, which had a distinctive red and yellow livery, in the yellow brake calipers and the wheel trim. To complete the exterior look, Levante F Tributo is fitted with 21” Anteo wheels in Gloss Black and Ghibli F Tributo with 21” Titano wheels in Gloss Black. There is an “F Tributo” badge in gloss black on the wheel arch and the trident logo in body color on the C- pillar.
Finally, the shades of the exterior details are reflected on the interior in the red or yellow stitching combined with the Black full-grain “Pieno Fiore” leather.
