Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Sciadipersia is a Maserati GranTurismo in another Italian suit

Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera is back on the spotlight with its latest bespoke creation – the new Superleggera Sciadipersia. Set to be unveiled at 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the new Superleggera Sciadipersia coupe is set to light up the flare of excitement anew a few years after it launched the Disco Volante Spyder.

Essentially, the new Superleggera Sciadipersia is a conversion model that practically hides an appealing Maserati GranTurismo in Touring Superleggera-created clothing. The mechanicals are pretty much Maserati, but the exterior has been comprehensively revised, to the point that the Sciadipersia is hardly recognizable as one. Inside, the Sciadipersia is virtually identical to the Maserati GranTurismo, although some upgrades were implemented.

To create the new Superleggera Sciadipersia, potential customers have first to supply a Maserati GranTurismo to Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera before any kind of conversion is started. However, interested customers need to act fast since Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera will only do up to 10 conversions of the Superleggera Sciadipersia.

2018 Maserati GranTurismo gains a new look, but has the same engine

The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo has gotten a new upgrade, and we first witnessed it at the New York Stock Exchange on June 27 as the automaker’s CEO Reid Bigland arrived to ring the closing bell. The slight upgrade that was given to the GT is the company’s way of celebrating a full decade on sale.

Looking refreshed, the car definitely came from a weekend of relaxation at the Caribbean, and not from the plastic surgeon. It came out with a new front fascia featuring the hexagonal grille, instead of the oval-shaped one from the standard model. This inspiration came from the Maserati Alfieri concept. Though it does not fit the GranTurismo that well, this benefits the car in that aerodynamic drag will be reduced from 0.33 to 0.32. More conventional ducts have replaced the standard ones, which no longer sweep underneath the splitter. Changes have also been made around the rear of the car, with a new bumper and redesigned exhaust outlets.

The GranTurismo also gets an upgrade inside the cabin technology- and design- wise. Starting with the brand-new touchscreen and 8.4-inch infotainment system that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Premium speakers from Harman Kardon ensure you get only good quality music. Driving modes are now easier to access as they are now located on the central console near the gearshift. For the seats, customers can choose between a combination of Alcantara and leather upholstery, or Poltrona Frau leather.

2018 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible (GranCabrio) is launched

It has been ten years since Maserati first introduced the GranTurismo to the public. And to celebrate one decade, the Maserati GranTurismo and its convertible sister, that we know as the GranCabrio both get facelifted and subsequently presented at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Though many of us have already witnessed the former at the New York Stock Exchange earlier, it still is worth discussing.

The facelifted coupe does not look far from its predecessor. Noticeable upgrades can be found on the front fascia, most especially the new hexagonal grille, which was inspired from the Maserati Alfieri concept. Furthermore, the improved designs also help with aerodynamic performance, by increasing the airflow and cutting down the drag. When looking at the rear end of the car, you’ll find a rear bumper that has been redesigned.

The 2+2 will also be getting a new, 8.4-inch touchscreen that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto inside the cabin. The infotainment system sits above a redesigned aluminum knobs and contains buttons that can activate climate control, driving modes, and some other similar features. Another cabin upgrade is that customers can choose between a combination of Alcantara and leather upholstery, or Poltrona Frau leather. Also notable are the premium speakers by Harman Kardon that ensure you only hear the best.

After their debut from New York and Beijing, Maserati brought its GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition and GranCabrio MC Centennial Edition at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The two Centennial Edition models of the GranTurismo MC will have three special “three-layer' color schemes. This is in addition to the four color schemes already made available.

Aside from the color scheme, there is also now a wider choice when it comes to wheels with consumers given the option of four special finished that uses the Trofeo and MC designs. The center of the wheels will have a medal-shaped centenary logo that is also offered in two finishes, either Charcoal grey or matte Smoke grey, which will depend on the color and design of the wheel itself.

The Centennial Edition also has a wide variety of interiors to choose from. While there are seven exterior finishes to choose from, each will have its own specific interior finish. The seat has been upholstered with leather giving it a rather aggressive look that highly contrasts with the decorative insert based on either the blue, red, or white color of its seat profiles. This particular motif spreads out to the headrests and also surrounds the already magnificent embroidered Trident logo.

Maserati came with a big surprise for us at the 2014 New York International Auto Show as it unveiled the new GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition coupes and convertibles. The new models will be easily recognizable as they will be available with three special new 'three-layer' colour schemes in addition to the four already available for the GranTurismo MC.

Moreover, the vehicles will offer a wide choice of wheels, with four special finishes for the MC and Trofeo designs. The center of the wheels will show the medal-shaped centenary logo, itself available in two finishes, matte Smoke grey and Charcoal grey. As expected, the GranTurismo MC Centennial Editon range comes with a wide range of interiors and each of the seven exterior finish is combined with a specific interior finish.

The interiors feature contrasting decorative inserts based on the three colors – red, white and blue – of the seat profiles. This motif is also seen on the headrests and surrounds the embroidered Trident logo. According to Maserati, the special three-layer paint finishes include the Magma Red and Inchiostro Blue. These new colors are actually a modern interpretation of those of the Maserati logo.

DMC has released an aftermarket package for Maserati’s two-door wonder. This project is based on the MC Stradale version of the car displayed at the 2010 Paris Auto Show. It was given a new Malta blue color that makes it stand out. DMC’s kit enables the owner to either upgrade their MC Stradale or they could turn their regular GranTurismo into a MC Stradale. A new spoiler lip on the front bumper makes the GT have a more aggressive look.

In terms of aerodynamics, the downforce is increased. More air inlets and outlets permit the new light-construction bonnet to ensure that the V8 engine is cool. Wide Body side skirts boost its dynamic look even further. It becomes sportier with the trunk spoiler at the back and with an entirely new rear diffuser.

While the regular GT offers 420 hp, and the Stradale gives 450 hp, the DMC can deliver a much higher output. The 4.7-liter was supercharged and can push out 590hp at 7,300 rpm and 472 NM or torque at 5,400 rpm. DMC also made sure that this package uses the “finest materials which have been processed in traditional top-quality craftsmanship.” The highlights include some carbon fiber buckets and aluminum pedals.

The new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale -- the fastest, lightest and most powerful car in the Maserati range -- will make its UK debut at this year’s Salon Prive event at Syon Park.

There are plenty of reasons for Maserati to be pleased with its performance in the U.S. this year. Maserati's GranTurismo Convertible has buoyed up the Fiat SpA brand in the U.S., with sales being driven up 48% this year through November.

Autodata Corp., a New Jersey-based researcher, said that Maserati sold 1,717 vehicles in the U.S., including 558 of the four-seat convertibles since it was introduced in March. Edmunds.com, a website that tracks new car sales, said that the GranTurismo Convertible has a starting price of $136,000.

Rebecca Lindland, an analyst with IHS Automotive in Lexington, Mass., said that exotic sales are expected to significantly improve with the arrival of new models. But last year, sales were dampened by the economic crisis and the resulting stigma on driving around in highly expensive cars.
