1937 Targa Florio winner’s trophy – XXVIII Targa Florio 1937 Circuito Parco della Favorita, Palermo Voiturette.
This is a large bronze plate measuring 21×16″ and weighing 22 lbs. This rare trophy has a wonderful patina to it, with an embossed car followed by several horses. This race was won by Giulio Severi in a Maserati 6CM. The Targa Florio has a very special place in Maserati’s history for it was in this race that the motor racing world first witnessed a car, adorned by the now famous trident, racing under the Maserati name. Similar TF trophies can be seen in the book ‘Piloti che Gente’, on page 84.
The original plates were designed by Rene Lalique for Vincenzo Florio.
