MASERATI GRANTURISMO “SPECIAL EDITION” AND LEVANTE ERMENEGILDO ZEGNA SHOW CAR DEBUTS AT GENEVA INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW
March 21, 2017
Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio celebrated the 60th anniversary of the 3500 GT, the very first GT car that segmented the market in 1957. Maserati chose the 87th Geneva International Motor Show to introduce its GranTurismo and GranCabrio Sport Special Edition versions.
The Special Edition is based on GranTurismo and GranCabrio Sport versions with only 400 units being produced. These new and exclusive versions inlcude the New Rosso Italiano three-layer paint for the exteriors, reinterpreting the red of Fangio’s 250F – F1 champion in 1957 – and emphasizing the link with Maserati’s heritage. The MC-design 20” Glossy Black alloy wheels complement the Special Edition Logo wheel centre caps.
A car like this deserves exceptional interiors; the new luxury interior design revolves around Poltrona Frau leather or leather/Alcantara upholstery and new interior stitching available in 4 different combinations. Other distinguishing interior details are the door sills in carbon fibre featuring the Special Edition logo and the dedicated plate on the central tunnel with a carbon fibre holder.
Developed especially for Maserati, Ermenegildo Zegna 100% silk fabric in the cockpit provides a heightened 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 E. 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 distinctive feature of the Quattroporte SQ4 GranLusso is the Maserati intelligent all-wheel drive system (Q4); with the 410 hp 3-litre V6 Twin-Turbo engine delivering sporty performance with a top speed of 286 km/h and just 4.9 seconds from 0-100 km/h. The GranLusso version reinterprets the concept of luxury in a race-bred, engineered luxury saloon by enhancing the exterior finish and improving in-cabin comfort for both driver and passengers. It offers a higher level of luxury thanks to exclusive materials such as the E. Zegna 100% silk and special features following the finest tradition of Italian craftsmanship.
The Ghibli E High-End segment sports saloon on show is the Diesel-version with a 275 hp 3-litre V6 Turbo engine, providing a top-speed of 250 km/h and 0-100 km/h in 6.3 seconds; it includes the Luxury interior package with full premium extended leather.
Ghibli, Quattroporte and the SUV Levante are equipped with the new infotainment system compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions; its standout feature is its 8.4” high resolution screen with multi touch function. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are optional extras that comprise Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go function, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist and Automated Emergency Braking functions.
