Maserati comes with Special Edition of GranTurismo and GranCabrio

Maserati celebrates 60 years since the 3500 GT was unveiled. The party comes in the form of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio Special Edition, the production run is limited to 400 units.

60 years ago, Maserati presented the 3500 GT, the car of which the GranTurismo is a distant descendant. Maserati is celebrating the GT’s anniversary with the GranTurismo and GranCabrio Special Edition.

The Special Edition is available in a special color, the three-layer paint New Rosso Italiano. The 20-inch wheels are finished in high-gloss black and fitted with special hub caps. Carbon fiber accents, including in the bumpers, are also part of the Special Edition.

The interior is decorated with a choice of leather upholstery from Poltrona Frau or a combination of leather and Alcantara. The stitching is available in different contrasting colours. Special Edition lettering, a plaque on the center tunnel and carbon fiber elements complete the decoration.

When the hood is opened, we see a 460 hp 4.7 liter V8 engine, coming from the Ferrari warehouse. Depending on the transmission selected, the top speed is 298 km/h (MC Auto Shift) or exactly 300 km/h (MC Shift). This also applies to the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h: 4.7 sec. (manual) and 4.8 sec. (vending machine).

The 87th Geneva Motor Show is the unveiling location for this special edition. In total, Maserati will produce 400 copies, so the Special Edition can safely be called exclusive. The price of the Special Edition has not yet been announced, but you can already reserve it.

Come in the beautiful world of Maserati.

Ermenegildo Zegna permanent tailor for Maserati

Maserati will be offering exclusive interior trim from autumn, provided by the luxury clothing brand Ermenegildo Zegna. Both the Ghibli and the Quattroporte will be available with the new trim option.

At Maserati you can already choose from countless types of leather for the seats and the dashboard, but the brand will add an extra option in the autumn: exclusive upholstery ‘by Ermenegildo Zegna’. Maserati has previously shown study models with the special upholstery, but will actually offer it from September.

The interior is then embellished with a combination of Poltrona Frau leather and a special upholstery made of silk fibers from the mulberry plant. Three color combinations are available, the silk is always anthracite-colored and the stitching is gray.

The leather is available in the colors black, brown and red. For further variation, ‘salt-and-pepper-colored’ fabric is used. The decoration is not limited to the seats and door panels, the ceiling is also covered with beautiful fabric.

The whole is finished with stitching that is applied in all kinds of patterns. The sun visors have a label with the inscription Ermenegildo Zegna exclusively for Maserati.

Alle uitvoeringen van de Ghibli en Quattroporte worden verkrijgbaar met de nieuwe bekledingsoptie. De prijzen zijn nog niet bekend gemaakt, maar reserveren kan al. Kom in de schitterende wereld van Maserati.
