Maserati GranTurismo PrimaSerie Celebrates 75 Years of Grand Tourers

Posted on

Maserati unveiled the new GranTurismo in October last year, but this isn’t the Italian manufacturer’s first grand tourer. In fact, Maserati is now celebrating the launch of a new model and 75 “years of grand touring glory” with a new limited edition vehicle. It is based on the aforementioned GranTurismo and goes by the name PrimaSerie.

This new highly customized model will be available in two different configurations, both based on the GranTurismo Trofeo. The former is inspired by Maserati’s racing heritage and is finished in Grigio Lamiera Matte with contrasting red details. The other has the main color Nero Cometa with mint green accents.

The exterior of both cars is adorned with the 75th anniversary logo in the center of the wheels. Inside the cabin, the same ornamentation is also seen in mint green on the headrests. The interior is somewhat traditional with black leather covering most of the surfaces, though stitching and mint green accents give it a special touch.

There’s no word on any mechanical upgrades, meaning power will come from the Nettuno V6 that also powers the MC20. In the GranTurismo Trofeo, it develops 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts) and 479 pound-feet (650 Newton-meters). As a reminder, there’s also a less powerful Modena trim for the grand tourer with 489 hp (365 kW) and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque, but Maserati says the PrimaSerie is based solely on the Trofeo.

Maserati did not say anything about the price of the new limited edition model but said production would be limited to just 75 units worldwide. How many of these cars have been earmarked for the US is still unknown, but the regular GranTurismo is now available here as a 2024 model. Maserati is also working on an open-top version of the car and there is also a fully electric model awaiting market launch.
