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!

To me, cars were never just cars…They always meant something special to me. Firstly, they are one of the most significant works of art in my life. Thanks to them I developed artistically and professionally, living the dream of working with something I’m passionate about. Appreciating cars from a design perspective combined with magnificent architecture as a playground is something I love and this provides basically the essence of Carphilesread more
A few weeks ago during my time in Zurich, I had the great opportunity to stop by and take some photos at Walter Historische Sportwagen. It was a real pleasure to take pictures there and witness how they work: everything in order and the neatness of the place is impressive.read more
