The most detailed and authoritative Maserati history ever written
Maserati, the Family Silver is the result of 14 years of painstaking research by leading automotive historian Nigel Trow and claims the “best ever” title by setting out with greater accuracy and in more detail than ever before the story of Maserati, as well as that of the Maserati and Orsi families whose genius and passion created and sustained the marque over the years.
Not forgotten are the artisans, engineers and drivers, including such legends as Giulio Alfieri, Guerino Bertocchi, Tazio Nuvolari, Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss, whose virtuosity helped burnish Maserati’s family silver.
Nigel Trow, whose previous titles including Lancia, the Shield and the Flag, Lancia Stratos and The Illustrated Lancia have established his reputation as one of the world’s foremost automotive historians, was granted unprecedented access to company and family archives, and was also able to interview many of the key individuals involved, unearthing hitherto unknown facts and debunking many of the myths and legends that have grown up around the marque.
Trow’s two-volume work, which extends to nearly 900 pages, also contains a large number of photographs and drawings from the Maserati archives, many previously unpublished, as well as a detailed index of race results and technical specifications for all Maserati cars and commercial vehicles.
Two volumes, total 872 pages, printed on heavyweight silk art paper, hard-backed in Wibalin binding and presented in a bespoke slip-case.
