Maserati Pays homage to the first female F1 driver with FTributo Special Edition of Ghibli and Levante

Maserati has unveiled a new edition, the FTributo Special Edition for the Ghibli and Levante. The FTributo Special Edition pays homage to Maria Teresa De Filippis who was the first woman to qualify for a Formula 1 Grand Prix. She qualified for the competition while driving the Maserati 250F.

Exterior Bits

The special edition raises the level of sportiness in the models with the help of eye-catching details and sporty aesthetics. The exterior has also been tweaked to give a sporty touch. The Arancio Devil is a saturated orange color variant in the special edition to recall Maria Teresa’s nickname, “the she-devil”.The grey is inspired by the track, which Maserati claims is their “home”.

The Levante FTributo comes with 21” Anteo wheels, or 21” Titano wheels for the Ghibli Tribute in the new Grigio Opaco colour. The details of the Rim wheel come in cobalt blue, that includes the specific badge on the fender and the Trident logo on the C-pillar.

When it comes to the Grigio Lamiera bodywork, the wheel colour is Glossy Black, while the details, the specific badge and the Trident logo come in a contrasting orange.


On the Inside, thr exterior finish colors are taken up in the cobalt blue and orange stitching which complement the black or orange and natural PienoFiore (Full-Grain) leather.

Maria Teresa De Filippis

In October 1955, De Filippis took part in the 39th Targa Florio, driving a Maserati A6GCS (shared with Luigi Bellucci). She would take ninth place overall (fourth in the two-litre class). This was the turning point that would lead her, one challenge after another, to break down conventions and become the first woman to compete in Formula 1 in 1958, again in a Maserati.
