Maserati Give Levante and Ghibli An F Tributo Paint Job
Maserati Ghibli and Levante F Tributo Special Editions commemorate the brand’s motorsport heritage.
Maserati has been making small little nudges in the right direction, electrifying most of its model lineup and keeping interest in the brand up. They have now released these “F Tributo” special edition models for their Levante SUV and Ghibli sedan. There’s really not much that’s interesting in these new models – it’s mostly just a paint job.
Two exclusive colours are available:
Rosso Tributo and Azzurro Tributo
The red Rosso Tributo is a nod to the traditional Italian motorsport colour while the blue Azzuro Tributo pays homage to the city of Modena.
There’s also red and yellow livery, along with yellow brake callipers. These colours are meant to pay tribute to Manuel Fangio’s F1-winning 250F from 1954.
The Maserati Levante F Tributo comes with 21″ Anteo wheels, while the Ghibli F Tributo comes in 21″ Titano wheels, both finished in black. A specific badge in glossy black can be found on the wheel arch and the trident logo in body colour is placed on the C- pillar.
Inside, you get either red or yellow stitching on the full-grain Pieno Fiore leather upholstery.
Here’s the press release with more.
Motorsports in its genes, power rooted in the spirit of pure competition, unprecedented wins and unrivalled achievements, Maserati celebrates its racing past with F Tributo Special Edition.
Maserati’s racing debut was exactly 95 years ago; it was on 25 April 1926 that the first racing car to bear the Trident on its bonnet, the Tipo26, won the 1,500 cc class at the Targa Florio with Alfieri Maserati at the wheel.
28 years later, on 17 January 1954, Maserati made its debut in F1 and entered the pinnacle of world motorsports with the 250F driven by Juan Manuel Fangio. An iconic partnership, crowned by many victories, which Maserati is commemorating today in a fitting tribute.
The Brand’s history in competition and its connection with the racing world inspired the new F Tributo Special Edition, which received its world premiere at Shanghai Auto Show 2021. F for Fangio, the driver who made his mark on an Era. Tributo, in clear homage to the glorious victories of the past.
The special series is available on Ghibli and Levante in two exclusive colours – Rosso Tributo and Azzurro Tributo – and evokes Maserati’s audacious spirit in this sporty version alluring in both looks and details.
The reference to the glorious past is obvious even from the exterior. Red is the colour of Italian motorsports, and historically Maserati cars always raced in paintwork of this hue, which represented Italy in motor racing in the early years of the last century.
The bright, vibrant blue of Azzurro Tributo, on the other hand, reminds us that blue is one of the colours (together with yellow) of the City of Modena, the Brand’s historic home.
There are further references to Fangio’s 250F, which had a distinctive red and yellow livery, in the yellow brake calipers and the wheel trims.
To complete the exterior look, Levante F Tributo is fitted with Anteo 21” wheels in Black and Ghibli F Tributo with 21” Titano wheels in glossy black. There is a specific badge in glossy black on the wheel arch and the trident logo in body colour on the C- pillar.
Finally, the shades of the exterior details are reflected on the interior in the red or yellow stitching combined with the Black full-grain “Pieno Fiore” leather.
