Where Maserati Engines are Made

Maserati partners with Ferrari to manufacture engines at a historic Ferrari plant in Maranello, Italy. It is an Italian alliance that has lasted for decades. Maserati vehicles are primarily manufactured in three main factories spread across Italy:

  1. Viale Ciro Menotti, Modena
  2. Giovanni Agnelli Plant in Grugliasco
  3. Turin Mirafiori Complex

Ferrari-built Maserati engines are known for their reliability. Each engine is put through an arduous testing process designed to simulate years of wear and tear. Rest assured that if it can happen on the road, Maserati simulated it in a lab.
