(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Maserati celebrated its hundredth anniversary in grand style at Monterey Car Week. Maserati isn't a stranger to the famous Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where “ in 1968 “ a Maserati Mistral Coup took top honours as Best of Show. Still today it is the most recent post-war car to capture this recognition.

As Honoured Marque at this year's sixty-fourth Annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance the lawn was packed with significant examples illustrating Maserati's rich century of history including “ in the Maserati Centennial Racing Class “ a 1954 A6GCS Spyder 1955 Maserati 250F Monoposto and 1956 Maserati 300S Fantuzzi Spyer.

The '54 A6GCS took the trophy for best Granturismo noted for its artistic beauty and highest level of performance in a Granturismo. One of the most fascinating cars of all times designed by Pininfarina in 1954 the A6GCS proved a valuable source of inspiration for the desgners of the Alfieri concept of today.

Looking forward to Maserati's next century the highly acclaimed Alfieri concept 22 made its North American debut during a special centennial celebration at the Mazda Raceway during the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion where Maserati was also the Honoured Marque. As Lorenzo Ramacioitti head of Fiat Chrysler Automobile Global Design presented the stunning concept he stated 'This car has a racing breed' but added that it has 'a kick of poetry.' The Alfieri also made a star turn on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

At the auctions during Monterey Car Week classic Maseratis were stars as well. At Bonhams highlights included a 1969 Ghibli 4.7 Spyder which sold for US841000; and a 1949 Maserati A6 15000/3C Berlinetta which captured US891000. At Gooding & Company the historic Maserati 250F driven to victory by Sir Stirling Moss at Monza in 1956 sold for US4.
