Maserati Creating One-Off Harlequin-Style GranTurismo

Design / Comments

It will be joined at Milan Design Week by two other special models.

Maserati will show up to Milan Design Week 2023 with three special versions of its new GranTurismo sports car. These three Maserati GranTurismo models are all one-offs from the Maserati Fuoriserie Program, which recently introduced a Barbie Pink version of the Grecale SUV.

The GranTurismo One Off Prisma includes a 14-color paint job, with 12 hues coming from past Maserati models and two looking ahead at the future. To name a few, Amaranto is taken from the 1947 A6 1.500 and Oro Longchamps was introduced on the 1973 Khamsin. The paint job also has 8,500 hand-painted letters that spell out past Maserati model names. This version is powered by Maserati's twin-turbocharged Nettuno V6 engine, but it's unclear if it has the 489-hp Modena tune or 550-hp Trofeo configuration.


The GranTurismo One Off Luce is meant to show off sustainability, which is why it's based on the all-electric Folgore model. With its three-motor setup, it delivers 750 hp. The exterior features an original chromatic mirrored monolith that's engraved with a laser-etched pattern. Maserati says the Luce is meant to have an absence of color to blend the contours into the environment.

There are no photos of the interior, but the cabin is supposedly filled with a material called ECONYL, a regenerated nylon yarn. This material is heavily used in the fashion industry because it enhances light, and Maserati plans to use ECONYL throughout its Folgore EV lineup.


Along with the one-offs, Maserati will bring along a GranTurismo Launch Edition PrimaSerie 75th, a special edition with 550 hp. Maserati only plans to build 75 units for each gasoline-powered version painted in Grigio Lamiera and Nero Cometa and 75 of the electric Folgore in Rame Folgore and Blu Inchiostro. The Grigio Lamiera cars get Corse Red accents while the Nero Cometa models get Mint Green. Inside, these cars all feature special stitching on the headrests that reads "75th Anniversary."

On April 20, the three cars will be parked in front of the Viale di Porta Vercellina in Milan during Design Week.

"GranTurismo Prisma is an ode to our 75-year heritage and to the know-how that has imbued all the cars Maserati has made over time," says Maserati design boss Klaus Busse. "GranTurismo Luce is our future, looking ahead, in perfect balance with Prisma. The essence of each one depends on the other."
