Maserati announced it will head to the 2014 Geneva Motor Show with not only a limited edition Quattroporte, but also a concept car that the automaker says will “give a nod to the style of Maseratis of the next 100 years.”
That’s all Maserati is willing to share for now, which means we’re left to speculate on what surprise the Italian carmaker has in store next week.
With the Ghibli fresh out of the box, it’s unlikely Maserati will
unveil a new midsize luxury car. It could, however, consider a Ghibli
coupe variant in either two-door or the trendy four-door versions, a la
the Porsche Panamera and Mercedes-Benz CLS. Another possibility is a
next-gen GranTurismo concept. The 2+2 coupe and cabriolet first rolled
into showrooms in 2007, and while still a handsome grand tourer, the GranTurismo would be next in line for a replacement.
But folks eyeing Maserati’s largest sedan will want to consider the Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition
model that was first revealed in concept form at last year’s Frankfurt
auto show. The Ermenegildo Zegna Italian fashion company, which
specializes in men’s duds, put its custom touches on Maserati’s flagship
sedan, especially on the inside. The seats, for example, are a
combination of leather and herringbone-pattern fabric. Each car gets
aluminum ingot plates that read “Ermenegildo Zegna Exclusively for
Maserati”. One plate is mounted on the exterior, while the other, which
is placed on the interior center console, also demarks the car’s series
number. A total of 100 will be made and all are powered by the 3.8-liter
twin-turbo V-8 rated at 523 hp and 524 lb-ft of torque.
