Repair of Maserati
Maserati is an Italian company specializing in the production of comfortable sports cars with a spectacular appearance and high dynamic performance indicators. It is part of the largest Italian automobile corporation “FIAT”.
Each of the Maserati brothers – Carlo, Bindo, Alfieri, Mario, Ettore and Ernesto – contributed in one way or another to the development of the company that still bears their name.
Carlo, the eldest of the brothers, was the first in the family to start working on cars. He created the first Maserati, equipped with a single-cylinder engine and a very simple chassis. But illness and the ensuing death of 29-year-old Carlo Maserati interrupted work.
On December 14, 1914, Alfieri Maserati founded Officine Alfieri Maserati company. The main activities of the new enterprise were the development and production of cars, engines and spark plugs. The company was based in Bologna, where a sculpture of Neptune, by Giambologna, is installed in the main city square. Inspired by this work, Mario Maserati designed the company’s trademark – a trident, which served as an omen of the future of the Maserati brothers’ company.
In 1925, Alfieri, Ernesto and Bindo, commissioned by the major Italian manufacturer and automaker Diatto, created a two-liter engine, which was equipped with a rather successful Grand Prix racing car.
But the birth of Maserati, as a company and brand known to the whole world, took place on April 25, 1926, at the start of the Targa Florio races. At these competitions, the third of the Maserati brothers, Alfieri, presented and piloted the first production car, the Maserati Gran Prix 1500, bearing the trident sign on its hood.
In 1929, racer Bakonin Borzacchini set a new speed record on Tipo V4 at a distance of 10 km – 246 km/h .
