The Italian Maserati brand has changed ownership so many times you’d think they were English. Yet they’re in the middle of a revival now as they rekindle interest through a larger U.S. dealership base, a new model with a far lower price range than previous offerings, and heightened marketing. With the new 2014 Maserati Ghibli getting its IIHS Top Safety Pick as it hits dealerships, the premium Italian automaker is definitely on the mend.
To coincide with all of that, the latest Jay Leno’s Garage featured a look at a classic and beautiful Maserati from the early days of the company’s automotive history. The 1956 Maserati A6G-2000 Allemano is a car whose look is stylish no matter the era and this completely back-to-original restoration by Jonathan Segal has won accolades from many for its attention to detail and excellent craftsmanship, including a Best in Class award at the Pebble Beach 2011 Concours d’Elegance.
