Maserati Celebrates the First Woman to Race in Formula 1 With FTributo Special Edition
A pioneer in motor racing, Maria Teresa de Filippis was the first woman to race in Formula One and a participant in five World Championship Grands Prix races. She first jumped behind a Maserati 250F on the 18th of May 1958 at Monaco and has since held the position of Vice President of the International Club of Former F1 Grand Prix Drivers and was a founding member of the Maserati Club in 2004.
Standing out in a sport traditionally dominated by men, Maserati is celebrating her legacy with a special edition FTributo range for both Maserati Ghibli and Levante.

Key highlights of the model lineup start on the exterior. There’s no mistaking the ‘Arancio Devil’ colour that’s specially made for this vehicle and combines the vibrant energy and audacity that recalls Maria Teresa’s nickname, “the she-devil”. ‘Grigio Lamiera’ is an understated alternative silver that pairs well with brighter interiors to fairly fulfil the brief of the special edition. Specific badging appears on the fender and the Trident logo on the C-pillar.
Wheels for the ‘Arancio Devil’ colour on the Levante FTributo are limited to 21″ Anteo wheels. On the other hand, the Ghibli FTributo receives 21″ Titano wheels. Details extend to these wheel rims that feature cobalt blue lines. Gloss black wheels with orange lines are optioned for cars in Grigio Lamiera.
Cobalt Blue and Orange interior highlights match that of the exterior, alongside black or orange and natural PienoFiore (Full-Grain) leather. This is added to the optional equipment that is now standard across the Levante model lineup, including wireless phone charging and remote start on the Ghibli, and a 15-speaker Bowers and Wilkins sound system on all Trofeo variants of Ghibli and Levante.
