Maserati was founded by five Italian brothers in 1914 – Ernesto, Ettore, Carlo, Bindo and Alfieri. The brothers’ shared passion for motor racing led to instant success for the Maserati brand on the track. The brothers sold the company in 1937, but continued in engineering roles. After a tragic racing accident in 1957 involving a Ferrari, Maserati retired from motor racing, concentrating its efforts on producing road cars. This led to the manufacture of the Maserati 3500, Sebring, Mistral Coupé, Spider, Quattroporte and Ghibli. In 1968 Citroen took over before Benelli Motorcycles bought the company in 1975. After Fiat’s takeover in 1993, 50% was sold to Ferrari which is credited with breathing life back into the failing brand.
