A Photo Review Of The Maserati Tour Around Berlin
Maseratis in the streets of Berlin are quite rear. I had the opportunity to join the Maserati Tour, thanks to my Carphiles friend Dirk who kindly invited me for a tour around Berlin with some iconic Italian divas taking over of the highways of the city.
One of my favourites so far is the Maserati Ghibli; it was actually the first time I ever saw one. Also, the Ghibli SS – convertible – a very rare model from the Neptune´s Trident. During the tour, also some of the contemporary Maseratis showed up, but my main focus were vintage divas like the Indy, Kamsin, Ghibli and the Mexico. The first Mexico prototype was derived from a damaged 5000 GT, owned by former president Adolfo López Mateos. In 1961 it returned to the factory for body works. In 1965 Vignale presented a new body for a Maserati four-seater at the Salone di Torino, based on the damaged car of the president. The new Vignale design was such a great success at the show, Maserati decided to name it „Mexico” in honour of the strong connection to the country.
Thanks to Dirk for making me part of the tour. The photos speak for themselves. Enjoy!

It may sound like a big cliche, but Paris is a city that I love. it has fascinating architecture, part of which are the brutalist buildings of the 70s that many Parisians hate. The viper is a car that I love since I was a child. I remember it being on the cover of one of my very first Motor Trend magazines, in movies, and music videos.read more
During the weekend after a long quarantine, we Berliners were finally able to return little by little to our favorite activities. One of them was the Flitzer Club Tour, organized by Dirk and Leo, which was a two-day drive through East Germany, approximately 350km in total. We went to different interesting places like castles, an abandoned hospital, and a gallery.read more
