Maserati is a company with an even longer and more chequered history than Ferrari, who were one of their main rivals on the racetracks of the world during the nineteen fifties, and in the showrooms of high performance cars during the sixties and seventies. The paths taken by the two companies were long and varied, but eventually through the Fiat empire they became stable mates in July 1997, when Ferrari acquired 50% of Maserati from Fiat, with an option to purchase the remaining 50% before the end of the year 2000. They took up this option in November 1999, and thus at that time Maserati became wholly owned by Ferrar
