Maserati was founded in Bologna on December 1, 1914 and officially started operations two weeks later. The firm was represented by Alfieri Maserati and four of his brothers and would launch its first car, a race car dubbed the Tipo 26, in 1926.
The race car debuted with a victory in the 1926 Targa Florio, the first of multiple race wins that would include two Indianapolis 500 titles as well as a Formula One world championship. Interestingly, it wasn’t until 1947 that Maserati would launch its first passenger car, the A6 grand tourer.
