About Maserati of San Francisco - A Maserati Dealership Serving the Bay Area
"There are two things no man will admit he cannot do well: drive and make love."--Legendary British racer Stirling Moss
Situated in one of the most robust high performance automobile markets in the U.S., Maserati of San Francisco is committed to heightening the Maserati legacy throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Maserati is one of the world's most enduring automobile nameplates, earning a distinctive place in the annals of performance.
Founded in 1914 in Bologna, Italy, Maserati inaugurated its performance heritage building Grand Prix cars for the legendary Italian carmaker Diatto. Maserati scored its first victory as a nameplate in 1926 at the Targa Florio, an endurance race held in the mountains of Sicily.
Renowned driver Baconin Borzacchini set a world speed record in 1929 of 153.2 miles per hour at the wheel of a Maserati V4, boosting the image of the Maserati marquee. Celebrated Argentinean racer Juan Manuel Fangio fortified the legacy, capturing the 1957 Formula One World Championship title in a Maserati 250F.
Maserati's revolutionary Tipo 61 "Birdcage," driven by the likes of legendary British racer Stirling Moss, is among the greatest racecars of all time. Built for the 24 Hours of Le Mans between 1959 and 1961, the Birdcage incorporated an intricate tubular space frame providing an exceptionally light yet rigid chassis.
Such engineering acumen is a sustaining feature of Maserati automotive craft, as the company's track and commercial successes attest. Propelled by Ferrari engines, the sleek GranTurismo--with its fluid lines?and the flagship Quattroporte?with its muscular grace--are exceptional examples of Maserati engineering and Pininfarina design.
And because Maserati is a boutique manufacturer, it permits endless possibilities for client personalization. Now based in Modena (the "capital of engines"), Maserati offers a broad range of color and trim combinations: from brake calipers and wheels to stitching and wood grain. This unprecedented level of exclusivity merges Maserati sensuality and performance with the personality, taste and style of each individual driver.
Maserati of San Francisco joined the Boardwalk Auto Group family of fine dealerships in 2009. Designed in the style of an Italian Villa, Maserati of San Francisco is poised between the scenic Richardson Bay and the rolling hills of Mill Valley, among the most distinctive Maserati Boutiques in the world.
