The Trofeo Maserati series held its first test day at Vallelunga circuit this week, and it was just as awesome as you might expect it to be. The series is an arrive-and-drive competition for international ballers gentleman drivers who want to go fast in style – much like the Ferrari Challenge or Lamborghini Super Trofeo series.
The GranTurismo MC race cars used in the series weigh less than 3,087 lbs and while Maserati hasn’t released horsepower output numbers, the cars use Maserati’s 4.7-liter V8 powerplant.
Maserati released a few official videos of the cars on track but they aren’t very exciting. Instead we found this video on YouTube. Turn up your speakers and hear that unrestrained Italian V8 howl!
