Maserati Celebrates 100 Years of Automotive Engineering



This year, Maserati celebrates its 100th anniversary. In December of 1914 Alfieri Maserati and his brothers Ettore and Ernetore created the first Maserati. Over the past 100 years, the automobile brand has grown significantly and become one of the most recognizable names in automotive history. To commemorate its birthday, Maserati created a limited edition Bulargi timepiece and a special edition Maserati Neiman Marcus Car.

Life+Times spoke with Former President & CEO North America Peter Grady and had him select some of the most iconic models to date.

Tipo 26

“It was in 1926 that the founder Alfieri Maserati won the first Targa Florio in the brand’s history. This victory was extremely important for Maserati, a source of pride and the well-deserved reward for all the development work behind the birth of the first all-Maserati car, the Tipo 26. Alfieri Maserati finished first in its class at the Targa Florio. This was the first car to carry the Trident badge, Maserati’s logo today – first designed by Mario Maserati.”

  2. Dear Shawn,

    It’s around 7 a.m. and I am looking for you. You had me somewhat confused, as
    being cautious is key, because you are such a large and beautiful soul, I
    didn’t knew what to expect.

    You had me thinking you are one of the view I really feel sympathy for. I don’t
    want to sound cruel, but of course there are more.

    I think it is a strange thing that I told you I was the one who was being
    alone. You seem to be alone to but in a different way. I think that’s basic
    talk, people don’t know how much we suffered and with how many pride we chived.
    You should really be proud of yourself I think and what I appreciate the most
    is the fact that it is what you achieved that I try to and will conquer.

    Beautiful talk, ofcourse, all we do is talk about values, competences,
    attitude, knowledge and skills, easy peasy you would say. I think so to. But
    what if the message is more appealing to me listening to you? As in I know I
    suffered allot considering family circumstances and people not knowing exactly
    who you are, manipulating experiences for their own good. As in me wanting to
    change the ones who made people like you and me suffer, regret their own blood
    again and again?

    Than I would say I went a little to far. People don’t have to suffer more than
    necessary, me, you, or we are to proud for that. We are the ones I guess no one
    knows about but are still more powerful than of screaming characters who think
    about themselves more than they should. I am talking lightly now, you know?

    It gets difficult to grasp on emotions when they are covered in thought or
    responsibilities, I know. You know. I think we now. Sometimes it is just more
    about opportunity instead of truth, which is logical, but not always. As you
    know there are boarders and moments you simply have to stop.

    Yes, if you want me to answer the question whether I analyzed my life the same
    as you did, I think I would say yes. I would even argue that I was right on
    making the decisions I made, because I went this far to understand my emotions
    and as well the emotions of others.

    I know I am not the guy who should be telling you whether your choices are
    right or not. I also shouldn’t be bothering you with my loneliness because your
    work is so (I am not exaggerating) to others. It is not about me and I am fine
    with that.

    But in the end I still always remained true to myself, did the best I could and
    gave the best I had. I don’t say this very often, but there are not many people
    like me. “Why?”, I hear you asking. Shawn, people are afraid of the
    problems they get into when they should tell the truth. Don’t you remember?

    It might be that you went to far sometimes. Mostly, I have to say, some sort of
    feeling of uneasiness comes over me when thinking about someone’s personality.
    Oh Jay, you expected me to say you’re special? Please go away. I also like Lil
    Wayne. He also has the personality to not behave improper just because he can.
    I know more people who are like that, but you know, people make mistakes to.

    Reasonable doubt. What is that for that people make mistakes? Touché. Please go
    to the “why” of it immediately. Because they care?

    You had me stuck in a personal reflection. I am ready but not ready yet! There
    are so many beautiful things to do on this world. One of my first bets will
    take place this month. I will argue my human being is all I could ever have on
    this moment. Don’t you appreciate it? I make choices which help me to get to
    higher levels of control, that is what being God is all about, isn’t it humble

    I don’t really believe in RECHTVAARDIGHEID, sometimes it is just better for
    people to not know the exact story. I see you still care, as we are still
    getting bigger day by day until death separates our soles, that there are
    reasons for that. You know what the actual height is you are now? You are at
    the height in which your emotions are gone and you still think about
    “simple souls” like me. This is one of the beautiful promises you
    made to make the best out of life, life which was clearly larger than yours, is
    actually larger than yours. And you know what? I didn’t even told the entire
    story. Because you don’t even know how beautiful you are anymore which makes
    you believe some soles could do better. They already do good, Jay!

    So here you got me asking, what is it that separates us? For my own good I
    would argue that we should and we will, making it last, and you would argue
    that there are just to many reasons to acknowledge this ti even start the
    discussion. Oh, such a precious silence. But yes, this sounds far away. No
    buts. But.

    But Jay. You forgot you moved out of some technical school? I got screwed to. I
    could be a “big earner” on the Internet I guess. I will be doing some
    attacks on the ones responsible for my sorrow when possible and I will try to
    make the best of it. But don’t you see this is you? Me. Or we?

    No, we can’t stop. We go on. We will look for treasures all around the world.
    We will never regret working so hard. We will enjoy life and all the valuable
    things we do. We do so precisely. Big talker, I know, but at least I am trying
    to. We’ve always been like that, take one finger, take our eyes to, our hair,
    our nose, fingers and even mind. We were more humble than the one who gave it
    to us. We appreciated what we had to the fullest. Don’t you remember?

    So where does the story go? Where doesn’t it to? Can these two souls melt? They
    already did! Can they meet uo physically and be together for a while? Sure they
    can! Let’s celebrate this moment of enlightment and joy, please. You know what
    this is for.

    Strategies are strategies and I thank you for that. We were the ones who tried
    to bring the world closer to it’s roots. We were the ones who were uprooting
    life to accomplish in it. We were the ones who had the energy when no one else
    did. And we were the ones who accomplished to put back the roots where they
    belonged. But we were also the ones that… I just don’t remember it now and I
    might come back to this later.

    Where were you, my long lost beloved friend? Not that there is something I
    blame you, no! You were just doing what you had to do. But I mean like I love
    you Jay. The money is a blessing ofcourse. But it is your soul which is so
    uncomparably beautiful to whatever is there. I mean you said you was back on
    your bully shit again. Please do so! What I wanted to tell you is that we would
    also create our own worlds. Said I would get back to that, so here we are.
    You’re a kid again.

    Remember me reading something about black holes, which were holes in which new
    worlds could be entered. New worlds? Isn’t the human mind one world? I think it
    is. Look at what we can create! Just a small world. Imagination is key and I
    know you care. So pack your stuff and get here. We smoke some weed to
    celebrate. We drink dome Dusse or whatever. Because we are the ****. Achieving
    new heightss.

    Btw, you know what our strengths and weaknesses are? Our strengths are at this
    moment we probably have a clear view in the extremes of good and evil or just
    one of those. Problem us that it is about extremes and that it is quite new to
    combine them the way I see it. I think you should be the one taking
    responsibility here as you said you would.

    But we aren’t ready yet, god damn it. Let us please continue this road to
    wherever we have to. Be enlighted to write history, the academy of Carter!
    What, o my enlighted soul, what is the joy we get? Is suffering the joy we get?
    Yes it is! We enjoy new heights my beloved friend.

    PS1: I only read one
    page of your life and times (6×5/)

    PS2: I do not have a driver’s license

    PS3: You had me spending $300,- on a Jay Z beat yesterday

    PS4: We are on playground and everything is possible.

  3. Because you’re a son of God too and I recognize you’re emotions or thoughts in relations to yourself and others, brother, please take this advice!
    Never ever compete on trouble, because one’s death is someone else’s bread (that’s how they call it in the Netherlands). I saw the guy next to you doing something similar or whatever, but I like to open doors! I just did so!
    Please let me know you have read this post because our relationship should at least have some kind of sustainability!!
    I will delete this post within 3 – 5 days and I also like to hear from you… !!
    7:17 A.M. ….

  4. Btw, you can also say it the other way around, like one’s bread is someone else’s death…
    True food for thought isn’t it? Could be hip-hop material or more I think.

  5. Dear Jay Z,
    they say prevention is better than cure and I agree. It is the fifth day now,
    expecting you to wait a total number of 7 days before posting something again
    on your Instagram. I indeed long for you because I feel some kind of sympathy
    for you, probably because you are just like me and have more experience in life
    than I do, in years I will add.

    I guess experience is also a result of investing time and energy. The first thing that
    comes to my mind are books, but it could also be art, music or theater. You
    know that everyone has own preferences, not restricted by possibility to
    change, and so do I.

    That I like to read books, is something that started a couple of years ago. Before that, I
    was a little afraid of all the things that happened in life and tried to make
    the best of it. You will recognize this. The books gave me real good
    perspectives on life could or even should be, mostly. Some books gave me also
    insights in infinity and that sort of stuff.

    It resulted and still results in my personal “being” being able to overcome obstacles and
    gain insights in how to live life in that way that it also provides other
    people with help. Sometimes this can be harsh.

    I saw your photo’s on Google and your Instagram quite frequently this month. They gave me
    little insights in who you really are, so except for nick names like big fish,
    gold chain and shadow man they gave me
    also insights in what was going to happen. You know the riddle right? Some
    emotions or reasoning here, some people there and you will get an overview on
    what’s going on.

    I noticed something considering positivity. You worked your ass of didn’t you? You were
    self-protecting all the time, isn’t it? You were afraid of people who had
    nothing to lose, isn’t it? You also wanted to be happy and give the best you
    had, isn’t it? You also had to overcome many obstacles, isn’t it? Well, here is
    something for you.

    Anger, how they call it, is a behavior that starts when people feel they experienced injustice.
    It can drive them out of control and that is what mostly happens, because they
    simply can’t find the right words to keep calm when emotions are high. This
    principle, written by Seneca, can be found in one of his dialogues. I read all
    of them. What I want you to realize is that this book provides you with real
    wisdom and it is said that you will only be wise after reading the book. Please
    look for it.

    I know Shawn, many people provide you with books including information you already
    know of. This time, I guess it is the particular information you look for. You
    were lost, weren’t you? I guess this will get you right on track again. Please
    look for the book on anger. If you are interested in being proud also in
    respect to other people, that I suggest you to read all the books.

    One funny thing I have to tell you is a sort of word joke. In Dutch they call the
    principle being “fier”, which is a synomym for the Dutch word “HOVAardigheid”
    and means the same as being proud.

    All the
    best Shawn.
