Maserati is continuing its year-long centennial celebrations at the Goodwood Revival on 12th – 14th September. As well as marking 100 years at the pinnacle of automotive engineering, Maserati are also honouring the 60th anniversary of the legendary 250F Formula One racing car by releasing some rare film footage of the car in action
The luxury Italian brand which was first founded by the Maserati brothers in 1914 in Bologna will be showcasing some of its rarest and most beautiful models from its rich sportscar heritage at the Goodwood Revival.
From Maserati’s historic road car range, the 1961 3500 GT Vignale Spyder and 1969 Ghibli Tipo AM115 will be on display in the Earls Court Motor Show. Also on display alongside these historic Maseratis will be the current high performance GranCabrio MC and the new Ghibli premium sports saloon. As part of Maserati’s immersive display inside the exhibition hall a miniature vintage cinema will screen original footage from the marque’s motorsport hey days.
In the main paddock, the legendary Maserati 250Fs will take centre stage in a recreation of the 1954 pit lane from the famous Italian race circuit - Monza - which played host to the iconic race car. 16 examples of the car will be on display at the event including an ultra-rare V12 model. The 250F is no stranger to Goodwood, having been victorious at the race circuit in the 1950s. Sir Stirling Moss once hailed the 250F as the most beautiful looking and user-friendly Formula One car ever built.
On Sunday 14th September the fleet of 250Fs will compete alongside machines from Ferrari, Lotus, BRM, Lancia and Aston Martin in the Richmond Trophy for front-engined 2.5 litre Grand Prix cars built between 1954 and 1960. The cars will also take part in high-speed demonstrations on Friday 12th September.
