Maserati showcased its GranTurismo and GranCabrio Sport Special Edition versions at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show. A brand new conceptual Ermenegildo Zegna silk interior in beige will also be on show in the SUV Levante. The first Maserati Grand Touring car, the 3500 GT, was produced 60 years ago and made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The GranTurismo and GranCabrio Special Editions celebrate the 60th anniversary of one of Maserati’s iconic vehicles, while embodying the entire legacy of this glorious brand.
The Special Edition is based on GranTurismo and GranCabrio Sport versions and only 400 units will be produced. The unique features of these new and exclusive versions include the New Rosso Italiano three-layer paint for the exteriors, reinterpreting the red of Fangio’s 250F – F1 champion in 1957. The MC-design 20-inch alloy wheels come with a new Glossy Black finish that matches the Special Edition logo wheel centre caps.
The new interior design revolves around Poltrona Frau leather or leather/Alcantara upholstery and new interior stitching available in four different combinations. Other distinguishing interior details are the doorsills in carbon fibre featuring the Special Edition logo and the dedicated plate on the central tunnel with a carbon fibre holder, commemorating the anniversary and the limited production run of 400 units.
The 2017 Geneva Motor Show will also present the Levante Show Car, featuring the new conceptual Ermenegildo Zegna 100% silk fabric in the cockpit. Ermenegildo Zegna atelier has developed a new silk fabric specially for Maserati, for a soft touch effect, in a new beige colour. The brand new “Chevron” beige silk fabric is coupled with full premium beige leather on the front and rear seats.
The same new beige silk fabric with a “Nattè” pattern, is used to enrich the interior door panels, while a “Jersey” pattern has been chosen for the roof lining and sun visors. A dedicated label featuring the Zegna logo highlights the luxuriousness of this interior combination, which is paired with the full premium black leather covering the upper part of the dashboard and the ambient beige cabin.
The new Zegna beige interior will further enrich the current line-up of luxury interiors, available in 100% silk in anthracite combined with full premium leather in black, red and tan.
