Maserati’s 100th anniversary celebrations have been occurring all year long, with multiple events taking place world over in commemoration of the brand the four Maserati brothers helped create in 1914. The finale of the brand’s centennial year will be the Maserati Gathering, set to begin in late September in Modena, Italy. Over 80 cars left the Imperial Ancestral Temple in Beijing for the Gathering in late August and the convoy of cars has recently announced its crossing of the Russian border from China.
The 80 cars are all part of the Road To Modena event, which sees the vehicles travel from Beijing all the way to Italy (nearly a 12,000 mile journey) to arrive in time for the Centennial Gathering on September 18. The cars will cross multiple international borders during the journey, which must be complete in just 35 says if they wish to make it in time for the party in Modena.
The International Maserati Centennial Gathering will consist of an event at the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari, a track day at San Martino del Lago Circuit near Cremona and a tour of the the Giovanni Agnelli factory just outside Turin where Maserati Ghiblis and Quattroportes are built. You can follow along as the Maserati Quattroporte sedans, Gran Turismo MC Stradales and Ghibli sedans push onward with their journey by searching the #RoadToModena hashtag on Twitter or Facebook.
