Maserati GranTurismo Sport Special Edition pays tribute to the history. The coupé of the Trident House is presented in limited edition, 400 pieces just, to celebrate the 60 years since the launch of the first large Maserati series, the 3500 GT that in 1957 was produced – Strictly by hand, in the plant of Modena – in 2,200 specimens.
On the basis of Maserati GranTurismo Sport 2017, corrective adjustments have been made to the style and materials that characterize the GranTurismo, which is always present despite having been on the market for a long time. First of all, the engine bonnet has a central air inlet and two vents for the ventilation of the compartment. As a standard, it is obviously proposed in the same color with the bodywork, but on request, it will be possible to have the carbon fiber structure at sight, for a net contrast with the dominant color.
and are the colors the other great plus of the special edition. Seven shades, four “classic” Maserati, from black to white Eldorado, to black carbon and granite grey, three special, the new Italian red, the white birdcage and the gray lava.
The Italian red, in particular, recalls the color of the Maserati 250f of Juan Manuel Fango, the world of Formula 1 always in 1957. Continuing with the novelties that characterize Maserati GranTurismo Sport Special Edition 2017, we find the central splitter, the mirror caps, the door handles and the spoiler with carbon fibre finish, the same that on board we find on the central tunnel, around the instrumentation, on the Blades of the gearbox – MC shift robotic 6 speed with transaxle arrangement or MC Auto shift 6 gears in block with the engine – on the wheel’s crown. The exhaust terminals and diffuser profiles are also presented with a carbon fiber finish.
