Italian luxury car maker Maserati S.p.A. is pronounced [mazerati]. The firm was founded on December 1st, 1914, in Bologna, Italy; it is now headquartered in Modena, and its logo is a trident. Stellantis has controlled the business since 2021. Maserati and Ferrari were formerly partners. Due to ambitious objectives and new product releases, Maserati sold a record-breaking 3,000+ vehicles in the month of May 2014. They increased manufacturing of the Quattroporte and Ghibli models as a result. Maserati provides the Maserati GranTurismo and the Maserati Levante in addition to the Ghibli and Quattroporte (the first ever Maserati SUV). Maserati has set a limit on its annual production capacity at 75,000 cars worldwide.


Alfieri Maserati (1887-1932), Bindo Maserati (1883-1980), Carlo Maserati (1881-1910), Ettore Maserati (1894-1990), and Ernesto Maserati (1898-1975) were all active in the car industry at the turn of the 20th century. Diatto purchased two-liter Grand Prix vehicles made by Alfieri, Bindo, and Ernesto. The first Maserati was built, and the Maserati label was established, when Diatto decided to stop producing race vehicles. The first Maserati driven by Alfieri won the Targa Florio in 1926. Maserati started producing racing vehicles with 4, 6, 8, and 16 engines (two straight-eights mounted parallel to one another).

The Neptune in Piazza Maggiore with his trident
The Fountain of Neptune in Bologna's Piazza Maggiore served as the inspiration for Mario Maserati's trident emblem for the Maserati automobile manufacturer. On the advice of close family friend Marquis Diego de Sterlich, one of the Maserati brothers used this sign for the company's emblem in 1920. Due to Neptune's association with vigor and power, as well as the fact that the statue is a distinctive representation of the firm's original home city, it was seen to be especially suited for the sports car company.
When Alfieri Maserati passed away in 1932, the company was continued by his three other brothers, Bindo, Ernesto, and Ettore.
