Special Editions / 9 Comments

This is the third Grecale special edition in a short timeframe.

  • Top trim Grecale PrimaSerie only available in Giallo Corse yellow paint
  • Powered by the 523 horsepower Nettuno V6 or 325-hp mild-hybrid four-pot
  • Both models come standard with the Premium Plus package
  • Only 325 will be built

By our count, you're looking at the third special edition Maserati Grecale since the Macan-fighting SUV debuted in March.

First, there was a limited edition online-order-only Grecale built based on the middling Modena trim level. Then, Maserati built the one-off Grecale Mission from Mars. Now, we're being brought another, less than five months after the Italian SUV's debut.

The special edition is called the Maserati Grecale PrimaSerie, here to showcase the Fuoriseries program, which allows clients to create "unique, one-of-a-kind vehicles that reflect their personality and passion." It's Maserati's second PrimaSerie model, with the first being based on the MC20 supercar.

Maserati states it will make two versions of this latest special edition model, of which only 325 will be made. The first will be based on the range-topping Grecale Trofeo. If you're not up to speed on your Grecale trims, that's the fast yellow one pictured below, with the brand's 523-horsepower Nettuno V6.

This particular Grecale PrimaSerie will only be offered with the brand's Giallo Corse yellow paint, which is unique to Maserati's Fuoriserie personalization program. It will also be provided with the 21-inch wheels you see above, complete with those red calipers. Inside, Maserati offers far more than some paint and wheels for the money.

The cabin is bathed in 3D carbon fiber trim with headrest stitching that reads "PrimaSerie" over black leather. Maserati's Macan-fighter also gets a Premium Plus package, which adds a heated steering wheel, ventilated front and heated rear seats, and a Sonus 21-speaker sound system. Packages aside, stainless steel pedals, cargo rails, wireless charging, a head-up display, and an outlet in the trunk are also included.

The second version of the PrimaSerie cars is based on the Grecale Modena, much like that online-only vehicle mentioned earlier. Here, your choices expand slightly, though you lose that 500+ hp V6 in favor of a 325-hp mild-hybrid four-cylinder. The colors on offer are as follows: Bianco Astro (white), Blu Nobile(blue), and Grigio Cangiante (matte silver).

Regardless of color, the Modena-based cars all get the PrimaSerie stitching on the headrest and 21-inch "Pegaso" wheels. The white car has a red interior with grey stitching and piano black trim. Also added are some red calipers for the brakes. The blue cars get a black interior with blue stitching and more piano black trim. Outside, this car has blue brake calipers. That leaves the grey car. It gets blue calipers, as well as a white interior with grey stitching and still more piano black trim.

All three of the Modena-based cars get the Premium Plus package mentioned above, as well as all the other options discussed on the Trofeo-based PrimaSerie. The only difference is a hands-free liftgate, which is standard on the Trofeo.

Only 325 PrimaSerie Grecales will be produced, and all will come with a four-year, 50,000-mile pre-paid maintenance plan. Cars will be available to order this fall, but Maserati has not yet announced pricing.
