Bernard Guénant of Le Trident lives in what he jokingly calls 'the French Far-West'. He bought his first Maserati in 1984, one of the very last Indy America 4.9-litre. This was the starting point, and soon more Maseratis followed, with inline-six engines, V6's, V8's.
"It took us some time to convince our clients that they shouldn't cut corners, these cars are worthy of a full restoration. If you want to have a car run properly, this is the only way to do it. Now, this has become our working-principle."
He has grown a very impressive Maserati-collection and workshop. Focusing on cars with the Trident has proven to be the right choice.
"I try to drive my cars as much as I can. ... They all have their own personality, I love them all. The inline six-cylinders are old-fashioned, the V8's are more modern and torquier, more powerful, the V6 is a little more advanced."
