A Brief History of Maserati, From Italy to the Little Neck Area

In December of 1914, four brothers—Alfieri, Ettore, Ernesto, and Bindo—worked together to open the Officine Alfieri Maserati in the heart of Bologna, Italy. United by a love of engines and motor vehicles, they built a brand that would become a universally recognizable symbol for luxury and performance. The Trident design, inspired by a sixteenth century statue of King Neptune in Bologna, has come to represent automotive excellence for all who see it.

The fine luxury vehicles you’ll find at our Maserati dealer serving Little Neck have come a long way from the original Maserati models built in Italy in 1914. A century of evolution has been marked by great achievements both on the track and on the road, as well as a few more challenging times that helped build the brand’s character. These experiences have changed the brand over the years, but what hasn’t changed is the manufacturer’s unrelenting passion for creating high-quality, luxury vehicles.

The Evolution Of Classic Italian Style

If Alfieri, Ettore, Ernesto, and Bindo were still around to see the Maserati models of today, we have no doubt they would be proud. While the technology has improved, the classic Italian style remains. Step inside the Maserati Quattroporte at our Little Neck area Maserati dealer to feel like you’ve entered an exclusive lounge. The fine wood trims that accent the dash, and the elegant Italian Poltrona Frau® leather convey an air of luxury that is representative of over a century’s work.

Like all brands that withstand the test of time, Maserati is continuing to evolve. With the release of the Maserati Levante, the brand will have released its first sport utility vehicle, but even this advancement stays rooted in the Maserati brother’s humble beginnings. Via Emilia Levante, in Bologna, is where the brothers originally dreamed up the company that today still carries their name.
