|It’s red. It’s quick. It’s a Maserati …and it’s all mine!”
Alain de Cadenet excitedly shouts out these words as he introduces the “Victory by Design” Maserati show from behind the wheel of a flame-red 300S sports racer, driving hell-bent across a dust-strewn mountain pass.
Although Maserati is often thought of as the poor relation to its Italian cousin, Ferrari, this show will help dispel that misconception. Often, with limited resources, the company that was to start as a small family concern, would go on to build some of the truly great Grand Prix and sports racing cars in automobile history. Alain drives and appraises some of the most important Masers, shot in widescreen photography, on spectacular international locations, with Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 Surround Sound.
From the racer that helped establish the Maserati name in the 1920s, the Tipo 26, to the successful 8CM of the early thirties. The legendary pre-War 8CTF Grand Prix car, which was to win the Indianapolis 500 two years in a row. The 250F, which would take Fangio to his fifth World Championship. And the legendary Maser sports racers – the 300S, 450S and Birdcage. Alain’s passionate commitment to the Maserati marque
comes across through his infectious enthusiasm and the exciting action sequences.
