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!

In Berlin, it’s really rare to find many cool locations in one specific district. The government district is the big exception. I remember that I saw Nico one day at a red light in this district. Immediately I wrote to him to finally meet and do a shooting. When I saw the 1600-2 with all these buildings in the background I thought that it’s the perfect location. It really matches with the car!read more
