Maserati’s sporting DNA has inspired a new special edition, available for the Ghibli and Levante: the new FTributo Special Edition pays homage to Maria Teresa De Filippis and her story of audacity.
Maria Teresa was the first woman to qualify for a Formula 1 Grand Prix, having done so aboard a Maserati 250F. The tenacious spirit of Maria Teresa De Filippis and the timeless reference to the racing world of the Trident have inspired the new FTributo Special Edition, a limited series available for the Ghibli and Levante in two exclusive colours – Arancio Devil and Grigio Lamiera.
For the Grigio Lamiera bodywork, the wheel colour turns to Glossy Black, while the details, the specific badge and the Trident logo come in a contrasting orange. Entering the cabin, the shades of the exterior finishes are taken up in the cobalt blue and orange stitching, paired with black or orange and natural PienoFiore (Full-Grain) leather.In October 1955, De Filippis took part in the 39th Targa Florio, driving a Maserati A6GCS (shared with Luigi Bellucci). She would take ninth place overall (fourth in the two-litre class). This was the turning point that would lead her, one challenge after another, to break down conventions and become the first woman to compete in Formula 1 in 1958, again in a Maserati.
