63rd Annual Columbus Day Parade Happens In New York

Excited about the upcoming event? Well, just like anybody else, we have all anticipated the event to happen. Once again, a wide array of classic sports cars as well as some luxury cars aged to perfection are now again going to display themselves and show off the most outstanding designs and engineering. As elegant as you can imagine, these cars are all Maserati models and the Powerful 2008 Maserati GranTurismo is going to be part of a charity work.

All the Maserati sports and luxury cars will be seen lining up for the 63rd Annual Columbus Day Parade which is happening on the 8th day of October 2007. We should not expect anything like the Mazda speed parts maker Mazda on the show as the event is sponsored by Maserati itself. And take in the Italian style and elegance, the event will surely be the most sophisticated event this month. We are all aware that the Italian styles and designs are incomparable so expect engineering and design so different from all other cars you usually see.

The Maserati line up usually wears the famous luxurious exterior design of the Italian brand. At the event you will see the 1929/1931 Maserati Spyder which is so powerful to have the V16 for its engine with it becoming famous because of its 1829 record to a 2007 Quattroporte Automatic four-door sedan that can go from 0 to 60 in 5.5 seconds.

All these cars will be lining up to entertain the motor enthusiasts following a parade of the 2008 Maserati GranTurismo. There will also be an exclusive raffle which will benefit the scholarship programs of the Columbus Citizens Foundation who are also the organizers of the Columbus Day Parade. The first 10 of Maserati's latest models will be raffled during GranTurismo.

I found this list on The Auto Channel early this morning.

  • 1929 / 1931 Maserati Spyder - V16
