This new racing car from the Trident marque will compete in all rounds of the series in the GT class, wearing the colours of Scuderia Maserati of Washington.

The Maserati Trofeo Light is produced by the racing department at Modena, in collaboration with Italtecnica and is a development of the car used in the one-make series, which in turn is derived from the road-going Coupe Cambiocorsa. This version is considerably lighter (1150 Kg dry weight,) thanks in part to the use of composite materials for the bodywork, with substantial aerodynamic modifications. It has a front splitter and adjustable rear wing, while the wheel arches have been widened. The suspension has been completely revised with a new structure and tubular steel arms. The performance of the 4244 cc 90 degree V8 engine has been increased and now puts out 430 horsepower at 7000 rpm.

The next test for the car, which is also homologated for use in the CSAI Trofeo Nazionale of the Italian GT championship, will take place in the first few days of January at the Daytona circuit.
