Maserati honors a groundbreaking moment in racing history.
It was in 1955 that Maria Teresa De Filippis took the wheel of a Maserati A6GCS with Luigi Bellucci to win 9th place overall and 4th in the two-liter class at the 39th Targa Florio. Three years later in 1958, she would become the first woman to ever compete in Formula 1, that time with a Maserati 250F. It’s been 67 years since Maria Teresa De Filippis boldly defied convention with her racing career, and to honor that, Maserati has created the new FTributo Special Edition, a limited series of Maserati Ghibli and Levante cars that honor her story.
Two exclusive colors represent the FTributo Special Edition cars, Arancio Devil and Grigio Lamiera. Arancio Devil is a bright orange, and it’s named after a nickname that Maria Teresa earned: “the she-devil.” Grigio Lamiera is inspired by the track, where she, and with her, the Maserati brand forged their legacies in the racing world. The cars come with 21-inch wheels, and details throughout that represent the Maserati brand in cobalt blue or orange. The interior boasts full-grain leather and a color scheme that complements the exterior, with orange and cobalt blue stitching paired with black or natural upholstery. With bold styling that echoes her dedication to racing, these new special FTributo Maseratis lovingly revisit the history of Maria Teresa De Filippis.
