Just because a car hasn't been restored doesn't mean it hasn't been cared for. This 1970 Quattroporte's body and interior have survived since the Nixon administration. However, its engine has been given new parts–necessities after nearly four and a half decades.

With every hour that ticked by, the excitement and anticipation grew, until the carrier arrived to transport the car to Cernobbio. After it was loaded and the truck's large tailgate closed, at that moment, every worker who spent so much time and attention on the car watched it leave, just hoping it would impress the jury, and win a prize.

It was a gorgeous, sunny day in the desert and walking on to the green you were immediately greeted by a fleet of Ferraris.

For Mr. Frank Mandarano a tour through the Maserati factory in 1971 was enough for him to be smitten.

If you’ve ever seen a Maserati Tipo 60 or 61, you’ll immediately understand why they were nicknamed “Birdcage.” But that trademark intricate tube frame was almost concealed beneath the bodywork were it not for a Le Mans rule change that inspired some thinly veiled cheating.

There are cars out there with so much personality, so much presence, that they can be likened to people. Hot rods are like James Dean, Chevy pickups are chain-smoking cowboys, and English sports cars are graceful runway models. The Maserati Quattroporte? It's a mob boss.

Enzo Ferrari said, “The horses pull the cart, not push it.” Old man Enzo was speaking about the emerging dominance of rear mid-engined cars in Formula 1 at the time; a trend started a year earlier with Cooper’s groundbreaking design which placed its Coventry Climax motor amidships between its driver and rear wheels.

Inside, it even shares many of the SM’s gauges, while early cars shared the entire dashboard. Located in Italy with only 29,000 miles from new, it’s said to be in completely original condition. We love the silver on blue/tartan interior—it’s not the most tasteful combination we’ve ever seen, but its '70s-period kitsch fits the car well.
