Call it the Maserati momentum. Capping off a blockbuster centennial 2014 with a record 13,411 vehicles sold in North America — with the United States its global market leader — Il Tridente, as the brand is fondly referred, has just begun to roll up its tailored sleeves. Having recently eclipsed the 50,000 mark in car production at its Avv. Giovanni Agnelli Plant in Grugliasco, Italy, the Modena-based automaker continues to strengthen its partnership with Ermenegildo Zegna with a new Ghibli edition confirmed, not to mention fulfill its product line-up with the Alfieri 2+2 super coupe and convertible, and Levante crossover SUV. As we look forward to years of bold new designs, welook back at its lineage — a reminder why Maserati remains a peerless brand.
