While Maserati has no new car to showcase at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, it does have the Nerissimo package for three of its cars, namely the Ghibli, Quattroporte, and the Levante SUV. But the GranTurismo and the GranCabrio are not getting the all-black treatment. It was said that the new styling kit is actually a follow up to the Ghibli Nerissimo Edition that we saw earlier this year at the New York Auto Show.
If you are one of those people who are into a Maserati with rear doors, a nice way to give it some flavour would be with the use of this Nerissimo styling package. The package uses a Nero paint combined with black chrome accents for the front grille’s trident logo, together with the grille’s upper bezel trim and at the back on the trunk lid. To make it look really stealthy, the automaker will black out the logo, model, vehicle name, and engine. But that is not all, as it will also black out the exhaust tips, window surrounds, and the vertical bars of the grille. Overall, it looks chic and sinister, and that is exactly what you would want your Italian sport sedan or SUV to look.
If you are not into the blacked out look of the vehicle, you might want to go for the Ghibli or the flagship Quattroporte instead. With these, you can choose from other colour options like the Grigio Maratea and Nero Ribelle. But the thing is, these are only available if you are willing to give out extra cash for the optional carbon fiber exterior.
At the Los Angeles Auto Show, we saw the entire 2018MY Maserati lineup. This means that you can see the two-door GranTurismo and GranCabrio models live. Both models have a new exterior that has been slightly tweaked to boost aero, taking inspiration from the Alfieri concept car that we saw in 2014. They also come with an upgraded cabin where it features a new driver interface as well as an infotainment system.
Next year, the automaker plans to expand their portfolio, as they launched the sexier Levante GTS. In fact, we have already seen a number of spy shots of this particular car. And from 2019, most of these models will be electrified, while we expect to see the next generation GranTurismo in 2020.
Maseratis are already stylish from the factory, but you can never be too stylish when it comes to cars like these. And for those whose favourite colour is black, the Nerissimo package might just be the perfect upgrade for your Maserati.
