Maserati Trofeo

Maserati UK reveals the all-new Maserati Trofeo race car at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham. The 177 mph, V8-powered Maserati Trofeo Coupe will be displayed at the NEC in Hall 8, Stand 8250 throughout the show which runs until Sunday 12 January.

Maserati makes its official return to motor racing later this year, with the launch of the Maserati Trofeo (Italian for ‘Trophy’) championship for identical V8 Coupe Cambiocorsa cars. The high-profile seven race series is supported by Vodafone and visits five European countries – Britain, Italy, Germany, France and Spain. Two events, in Italy and Britain, will be held in conjunction with the local Formula 1 Grand Prix, and four will be Endurance events, supporting the FIA GT Championship and German DTM series. The last race will be held with the traditional "Finali Ferrari" racing days.

There will be 26 Trofeo cars on the starting grid, and it will be possible to enter two drivers for endurance events. All the Trofeo race cars will be prepared and run directly by the Maserati factory, to guarantee technical equality and similar performance.

Built on the regular production line at Maserati’s recently refurbished Modena factory, the specially developed front-engined, rear-wheel drive Coupe Cambiocorsa Trofeo weighs less, goes faster, and has even sharper responses than its sister road car.
