Video: A Brief History of Maserati by Clarkson

Submitted by on May 5, 2015

A Brief History of Maserati

Find out what lies on page forty of the Ladybird Book of Motor Cars from 1963 – the highlight of Jeremy Clarkson’s childhood – in this brief history of Maserati from Top Gear.

“I’m sitting here leaning on a huge metal fuel tank with a prop shaft spinning between my legs at 3,000 RPM. I’ve got drum brakes and tyres that would be more at home on a push bike.”

In it, Jeremy Clarkson spends some quality time with a few of Maserati’s greatest, including the immortal 250F, a considerably more mortal Biturbo and the utterly improbable MC12. We even enjoy a brief visit from Ferrari.

The video’s pure Top Gear entertainment, with a lovely piece of motorsport history in the form of the Maserati 250. So, hit play, and be entertained!
