That's a very long name for some new paint, wheels, and stitching.
Modena's "other" automaker has quietly unveiled a new special edition called the Maserati GranTurismo Trofeo PrimaSerie 75th Anniversary Launch Edition.
As the name indicates, this is based on the top-tier Maserati GT and is offered as a celebration of 75 years of Maserati grand touring vehicles. The PrimaSerie (first edition in Italian) is offered in two color combinations, and only 75 examples will be made worldwide.
The Nettuno twin-turbo V6 carries over from the regular GranTurismo Trofeo unchanged, which means 542 horsepower, 479 lb-ft of torque, three liters of capacity, and two turbochargers. Thanks to AWD, 0-62 mph takes only 3.5 seconds, so we doubt anyone will mind that there's no extra grunt on the special edition.
Two themes are offered. The first, inspired by the automaker's racing heritage, sees Grigio Lamiera Matte paint paired with Corse Red accents, while the other comes in Nero Cometa with Mint Green accents.
On each, a special 75th-anniversary logo is featured on the wheel center caps, as well as on the headrests of the seats, which we've only recently been shown for the first time. These Black & Ice leather seats are embellished with either Corse Red or Mint Green stitching, depending on the spec of the body.
There's not much else to be said for the exterior, but inside, you get the optional 19-speaker Sonus Faber audio system, replacing the standard 14-speaker setup.
Maserati has not indicated when these will be available, what they will cost, or in which markets buyers will be able to place an order.
Maserati's website simply encourages interested parties to sign up for more details. The configurator for regular Maserati GranTurismo models is live, but no pricing is available there either.
As a 2024 model, the GranTurismo is expected to reach dealers in the second quarter of this year. Since this special edition is also a first edition, we expect that the PrimaSerie will be launched before regular models. Hopefully, it and its electric sibling will be worth the long wait.
