Maserati, another of Italy's famous marques, formed originally for motorsport. The brand can trace its heritage back to the 1930s when it was founded by five brothers. In 1938 the company was taken over by a large Italian industrial company, Orsi, and production concentrated on race-cars. By the late 1950s the company had decided to produce road-going models and announced the 3500GT in 1957.
A series of well made performance GT cars followed throughout the 1960s and 1970s along with various four-door saloons. By 1968 the company had been purchased by French giant Citroen, which resulted in the quirky highbred Citroen SM. By the 1970s the company had been sold to De Tomaso and has changed hands again more recently to Ferrari.
