Compiled and edited by the company itself, this new-age, virtual encyclopedia features anything and everything you need to know about the brand and its specific models. Each issue deals with one model and provided uniquely detailed and certified technical information on that car. Just about every individual car that represents the history of the brand is featured in these issues.

The history of the company is definitely fascinating, to say the least. And with the Classiche series, you’ll get to know exactly how that history has shaped the brand’s 90 years of existence. For example, the marquee’s three major models – the GranTurismo, GranCabrio, and the Quattroporte - each represent one prong of the famous Maserati trident. A lot of the models that have been blessed with this badge have become icons in the automotive industry, while others have become classics in their own right. This book will serve as a comprehensive history lesson on the brand and its models, one where you’ll even get some advice and lessons from noted automotive historians.

Hit the jump for the full story.

Apart from the extensive history lesson for each of the featured models, the Classiche series also dives into a number of other features, including advice from technical experts and a reproduction of some of the brand’s old Owner’s Manuals and Parts Catalogs.

The series will also include several scale models of the featured vehicles, including the Ghibli, the Quattroporte Evo, the 3200 GT, and the Spyder with a bunch of other models expected to be added to the series in the next few months or so.

As fans of Maserati, the Classiche Series is a must-have for your collection and you can buy it at the company’s official online store or in any Maserati dealership for €399, or about $525.

It would be awesome to have this kind of collection most especially when you’re a Maserati enthusiast! However, I think this series is applicable only for the beginner because
I can’t see the point in having one if you are already educated about the Maserati’s car.

An Italian brand built on the Jeep lines in Detroit? Sounds like a recipe for disaster. At least the Ferrari engines will sound good... right up to the minute it explodes.

No limit to the work hours required to get 150K to 200K miles out of a Ferrari engine. Much less one moving a 2 ton vehicle pulling boats and driving in mud... Imagine the glorious sound it’ll make pulling out stumps.

The GranTurismo, the GranCabrio, and the Quattroporte in the current Maserati range are the three prongs of a Trident, with roots thrust deep into the past.
