Maserati Makes Colorful GranTurismo

Special Models Joining Milan Design Week

Come 2023, Maserati will be appearing at Milan Design Week armed with three distinct incarnations of its brand-new GranTurismo sports car. All three of these individualized models are part of Maserati’s Fuoriserie Program, recently featuring a Barbie Pink Grecale SUV edition.

The exclusive GranTurismo One-Off Prisma flaunts an eye-catching 14-color paint job, blending 12 hues which were previously seen on Maserati models while two present a glimpse of the automaker’s upcoming designs. Among the colors, it boasts Amaranto originally devised for the 1947 A6 1.500 and even pays homage to Oro Longchamps initially featured in 1973 on the Maserati Khamsin. Combining artistry with technology, 8,500 hand-painted letters spell out the names of past Maserati vehicle models. Powered by Maserati’s twin-turbocharged Nettuno V6 engine, there is still some mystery surrounding if this one will have the 489hp Modena tune or the 550hp Trofeo configuration.

The GranTurismo One Off Luce has been designed to highlight the importance of sustainability, this is why it has been derived from its all-electric Folgore model. Supplying 750 hp, it boasts a three-motor operation. Its exterior showcases an unprecedented mirrored monolith with a pattern laser-engraved into every surface. Maserati are keen to emphasize that the goal for the Luce was an almost complete lack of color, allowing it to blend effortlessly into its background.

No photographs have yet been taken of the interior, but reportedly it has been packed with a fabric termed ECONYL. This material is utilized greatly in the apparel sector as it gives an extra luminous quality; so Maserati intends to deploy ECONYL across all Folgore EV series.

Maserati is celebrating its 75th anniversary with a special edition GranTurismo Launch Edition PrimaSerie 75th. This limited-edition model will be available in both gasoline and electric versions, with a total of 75 units of each. The gasoline-powered models will come in two colors: Grigio Lamiera with Corse Red accents and Nero Cometa with Mint Green accents. Meanwhile, the electric Folgore will be available in Rame Folgore and Blu Inchiostro. All 75th Anniversary models will feature special stitching on the headrests that reads “75th Anniversary”.

Come 20th April, three motor vehicles will be stationed along Viale di Porta Vercellina in Milan during Design Week.

“GranTurismo Prisma is a tribute to the 75 years of Maserati’s history and to the expertise that has been incorporated into all of its vehicles over the years,” declares Klaus Busse, head of design at Maserati. “GranTurismo Luce is our vision for the future, in perfect harmony with Prisma. The two concepts are integral to each other.”
