2014 is Maserati’s centennial year and the Italian marque has been celebrating the milestone in a number of ways. The centerpiece of its 100th anniversary celebrations, the Maserati Centennial Gathering, is set to begin on September 18 in Modena, Italy and over 80 Maseratis are driving all the way from the Imperial Ancestral Temple in Beijing to the event.
The gathering of over 80 cars consisted of 2014 Quattroporte sedans, Gran Turismo MC Stradales and Ghibli sedans, representing Maserati’s entire current model lineup. There is no easy task in front of both the drivers and the cars, as the journey from Beijing to Modena is nearly 12,000 kilometers long, a distance that must be covered in just in 35 days.
When the convoy of Maseratis and their drivers arrive in Modena for the International Maserati Centennial Gathering, they will have an event at the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari, a track day at San Martino del Lago Circuit near Cremona and a tour of the plant where Maserati Ghiblis and Quattroportes are built, so hopefully they will have some energy left. You can follow along with the convoy of cars as they embark on their journey by searching the #RoadToModena hashtag on Twitter or Facebook.
