Maserati Fuoriserie Customized Cars
Maserati will showcase two exclusive GranTurismo coupes during the 2023 Milan Design Week. Bearing a distinctive look, these modified cars feature their original powertrain as part of Maserati’s Fuoriserie customization program.
The Luce is evidence of Maserati’s investment in study and development, with the motor vehicle exhibiting a chromatic mirror finish featuring a barely discernible laser-engraved pattern. Within, glimpses of the future continue on with Econyl adorning the interior, which the automaker additionally applied to the dash and door panels.
The impressive Prisma showcases 14 distinct shades on the outside, picking 12 from the iconic GranTurismo ranges of Maserati’s past. Featured are hues such as Amaranto, originally present in the 1947 A6 1500 and Oro Longchamps on the 1973 Khamsin. Furthermore, this design includes 8,500 hand-painted letters that embody the titles of many celebrated Maserati vehicles since its early days.
The Maserati GranTurismo has been unveiled for October 2022, after a slight respite. It is set to be the automaker’s first electric motor vehicle, with the launch of Folgore looming, having a unique three-motor configuration. This powerful combo puts forth 750 horsepower and 995 pound-feet of torque, allowing the two-door coupe to reach 62 mph in just 2.7 seconds, reaching a highest speed of 198 mph. The introduction of this EV is expected sometime this year, with other energy sources also up for offer.
Maserati’s GranTurismo makes use of the all-new Nettuno engine, a twin-turbocharged 3.0 Liter V6. The machine bears a standard Modena iteration producing 489 horses and 442 pound-feet of torque, although the Trofeo powertrain increases this to 550 horsepower and 479 pound-feet. Speeding from 0 to 62 mph only takes 3.5 seconds in the Trofeo form, with its top speed equaling the Folgore version.
Maserati will be presenting its GranTurismo Launch Edition PrimaSerie 75th Anniversary model at the upcoming Milan Design Week. Just 300 of these exclusive specials will be available, half with the Nettuno V6 motor and the other half powered by the Folgore EV powertrain. Externally, each car carries distinctive 75th-anniversary badging, as well as several extra features. Furthermore, a special convertible variation is expected to hit showrooms sometime in 2023 which will also have an EV variant.
