My interest in Maseratis started when I was 5 years old, flicking model racing cars with my thumb - BMWs, Alfas, Mercs, and Maseratis. I wish I still has these models as they would be very desirable today (despite being badly bruised!). This interest (along with some family ties) has led me to make monthly trips to Italy, during which I scour breaker's yards and various other parts suppliers..

I have bought cars both to break, and for re-sale purposes (knowing that the experience of driving another Maserati back to the UK will be fun in itself!).

My stockpile, although not large, is steadily increasing in quantity and diversity. I am normally able to fulfill any request within 4 weeks, as I can find what I need on my next visit to Italy.

I have been visiting Italian scrapyards ever since my first purchase of a Maserati in 1995 (a black/grey 430). My original business took me abroad on a regular basis, so it made sense to source new and used parts from the home of Maserati.

I also purchased a silver Biturbo Coupe soon afterwards, which had light front-end damage, with the intention of getting it back onto the roads. 2 years on (and £5000 later) the partially finished car was sold for £3000. This was a learning (albeit costly) experience during which I learnt much about the construction & failings of the cars.

Most of my stock is for the Biturbo range of cars (1982-1992) although I do also carry parts for later Ghibli models, and more recently the 3200 and 4200 models. The cost of collating stock to cover any request is financially not possible for me, but I am able to source most quickly (whether new or used, and for a variety of models).

I am beginning to become acquainted with the various breaker's yards throughout northern Italy where different models can be located. The demand for Biturbo parts in Italy is flagging as the price of these cars reduces. Hence cars are often completely crushed in order to free up space for a modern Fiat (or similar). Consequently it has become more difficult to find these treasures.

The Maserati Shed supports


Welcome to The Maserati Shed, Hampshire and the Solent area's only Nineties and Naughties Maserati and Alfa Romeo specialist. What you won't find is a gleaming city centre showroom that's all smiles, high hourly labour rates, and no real knowledge of your car if it's older than five years.

What you will find is a small, well equipped workshop with the skills - and most importantly - the enthusiasm for 1990s and 21st century Italian sports and performance cars, in an easy to find rural location between Southampton and Portsmouth.

Both our vehicle lifts are made by the Italian firm of Ravaglioli - perfect for your Italian car, and a Blackhawk body jig for those "oops, what tree?" moments and minor body repairs. However, for major bodywork we would recommend an outstanding local body shop that produces consistently higher quality work than we're capable of.

We have the very latest Fiat/Alfa Romeo Examiner Smart computer diagnostic system, and the Maserati Sistema Diagnosi 2 (SD2) computer diagnostic system, as well as lots more for the older cars (Fiat/Marelli Tester for older Alfas, Fiats, Lancia Delta Integrales and obscure stuff like the Lancia Ferrari Thema 8.32 and the Marielli Unitest 5000 for the first generation of electronic fuel injected Maseratis).

Our Sistema Diagnosi 2 (SD2) system is the official dealer diagnostic system for the V8 cars, both Maserati and Ferrari engined - 3200GT, 4200GT, Gransport, Quattroporte, and Coupe. With Maserati dashboards often lighting up like Piccadilly Circus whenever you turn the ignition key, be reassured that we will be able to quickly track down the cause and rectify it before it becomes an expensive problem, or just turn off an annoying airbag warning light that's come on because you've had a flat battery one morning...

Having the right diagnostic equipment for these cars is vital, especially if there is something wrong as it can pinpoint the problem quickly and accurately avoiding the expensive "replace everything until it's fixed" philosophy of the non-specialist garage. If considering using another independent specialist, ask them if they have this equipment. If they don't, walk away...

Autosheild supports


Autoshield was opened in 1985 and is owned and managed by Marios Kriticos, who started the company after returning from the Middle East where he worked as a service manager for BMW and later as an engineer in the transport department at Dubai Airport.

Originally Autoshield specialised in automotive electrical work and soon became a regular service agent for the main Maserati dealer in Manchester. Now acting as a consultant it wasn’t long before Marios was asked to become an official Maserati service centre for the North West and Autoshield Maserati was born. After a few years he was then offered the opportunity to expand into a full dealership, but declined. Preferring instead to focus on the service side of the business.

Now an established specialist in all things Maserati and Ferrari, Autoshield Maserati have a wealth of experience covering everything from the ‘classic’ cars and Bi-Turbo’s right through to the latest GT’s and Quatroporte’s.

Marios is a respected member of the Maserati Club UK and regularly attends their events. With a personal collection of old, rare and modern Maserati’s, Marios is as passionate about the marque as his customers. He’s also a regular participant in an annual European driving tour where he participates as a driver, offers technical support to other drivers and contributes the fund raising effort. A true enthusiast!requirements.

With a professional team who have between them over 40 years combined main dealer experience, we passionately believe in quality and integrity, applying the highest possible standards in everything we do.

Isn’t that what you and your car deserve?

Emblems DNA
Emblem Sports Cars (UK) started life in 1972 when the founders – John and Maria Woodfield - purchased a 24 year old country business known as Pimperne Garage in Dorset. Their objective was to provide the South Coast with a service for high performance car owners (Alfa Romeo, BMW, Ferrari and Lancia) that was personal and second to none.

Emblem became a very successful Ferrari specialist, later becoming one of the first factory approved Ferrari dealers on the South Coast. The name became synonymous within the UK for its’ passion for Italian sports cars. This business was sold upon the retirement of John Woodfield and the Emblem name disappeared from the scene.

Emblem Today
Emblem Sports Cars Limited was relaunched some years later in Bournemouth and includes team members who served their apprenticeship at the Pimperne premises. Emblem continues the levels of personal service and specialisation so successfully established over 45 years before by the late John Woodfield.

We are passionate about our core values of INTEGRITY, TRANSPARENCY and PERSONAL SERVICE. Fully equipped with the very latest diagnostic equipment, tooling and components for Ferrari and Maserati, our principal technicians have over 40 years combined main dealer experience ranging from the 1960’s V12 to F40 and Enzo for Ferrari and Bi-turbo to the latest Quattroporte for Maserati.

FTECH Engineering supports


Independent Ferrari and Maserati specialist

Ftech Engineering was originally founded by Dan Belli.

After many years learning his trade in the motor industry, Dan successfully gained a position as a technician at Carrs Ferrari and Maserati, Exeter. This was back in the early 2000’s and is where he began working on all the then, current models of both Italian marque’s, as well as all the classics. He learned about the product and the passion behind both brands. He also attended many training courses while at Carrs and gained a wealth of product knowledge. In 2009 Dan joined Porsche Exeter as a Diagnostic Technician and was thrust into a very busy and fast paced workshop gaining even more knowledge of the supercar world. But his continued passion for working on Ferrari and Maserati led him to look elsewhere and so…

In 2010 Dan moved to London to join the team at HR Owen Ferrari and Maserati as a diagnostic technician, again working on all models. He continued attending training courses and soon rose to become a senior diagnostics technician, working on some of the rarest and most expensive cars in the world; 288 GTO, F40, F50, Enzo and MC12 to name but a few. He also oversaw all junior technician work so that the highest dealer standards were always achieved. Dan also worked on many celebrity customers cars whilst at HR Owen and was also responsible for personally overseeing several Ferrari collections who’s owners insisted he be the one to carry out all work. This sometimes involved visiting the collections at their storage facility. In 2014 Dan moved back to Exeter, Devon and, on a self-employed basis, joined the team at SCS Porsche, an independent and well respected Porsche specialist based near Monition.

As Dan was an independent technician he was able to persuade the owners of SCS to kindly allow him the use the workshop facilities for his new business venture, Ftech Engineering, whilst still carrying out work for them. Although Dan had some degree of success he knew that to really make Ftech happen he needed to be able to focus fully on the business and his passion for Ferrari and Maserati. At this point, a chance discussion with an SCS customer called Tim Wadman, a local businessman and confirmed car and motorcycle enthusiast, led to Dan and Tim agreeing to start Ftech Engineering Ltd and embark on making the company into a fully independent Ferrari and Maserati specialist facility in the southwest of England. Tim was impressed with Dan’s experience, attitude and attention to detail when working on customers vehicles and could see tremendous potential in his ideas. He had no hesitation in forming a business relationship with Dan and so this is where we are today……Ftech Engineering Ltd…..committed to bringing a new and rewarding experience to owners of Ferrari’s and Maserati’s in the Southwest and beyond.
