SAN FRANCISCO-SHANGHAI RECORD

Maserati will face a record attempt in May on San Francisco- Shangai’s route, a 7,000 miles navigation that retraces the historic routes fulfilled by clippers in the Pacific Ocean in the mid nineteenth century. In 1853 Swordfish, built two years before and commanded by Charles Collins, was the fastest clipper, fulfilling the route in 32 days and 9 hours and beating in two days the previous record belonging to Romance of the Sea.
