Performance, elegance, sportiness, and style are a few words that can describe the vehicles that the Maserati brand makes. With a history of distinction, defiance, and determination, since 1914, four brothers took on a journey to build a business that would transform into an empire. Carlo Ernesto, Bindo, Ettore, and Alfieri started at a small repair shop in Bologna Italy. Over the years, Maserati is synonymous with luxury, sophistication, and style designing some top of the range automobiles. They also do not come cheap as you will need a tidy sum to get your hands on the models. Once in a while, the company treats the market with limited edition models. Buying such cars means that it would be difficult to spot another driver with the exact model because the company only releases a specified number.
