Maserati and Zegna have teamed up once again, creating gorgeous new woven-leather interiors for the Quattroporte and Levante.
Maserati has just unveiled a couple of special new limited-edition models for the US market, featuring unique exterior colors and seat upholstery for the Maserati aficionado who simply must have the finest.
Just 100 Maserati Zegna Pelletessuta vehicles will be sold in the US for the 2020 model year, each with intricate woven-leather seat upholstery, a bespoke exterior paint color, and other cosmetic accouterments. Of those, 50 will be based on the Maserati Quattroporte S Q4 GranLusso sedan, and 50 will be based on the Maserati Levante S GranSport.
The practice of weaving together thin strips of Nappa leather to create an intricate leather "fabric" isn't common, even in the most luxurious automotive segments, but the result is lightweight, durable, and oh-so-gorgeous. The woven Pelletessuta material makes up the seat inserts in both of Maserati's new Zegna Edition models, creating a halting, visually stimulating appearance that catches you the moment you open the door.
The Zegna Quattroporte wears its special woven-leather sport seats in sumptuous Dark Brown under a Blu Sofisticato Metallic exterior paint hue with blue brake calipers, while a special Zegna Edition interior badge occupies the cabin. The Zegna Edition Maserati Levante, meanwhile, sports an entirely different color palette, featuring exclusive Bronzo tri-coat exterior paint, black brake calipers, and black woven-leather seats. Exclusive Radica wood trim adorns the interior, as well, and the utility vehicle rides on 21-inch polished Helios wheels.
Both 2020 Maserati Zegna Pelletessuta models will be available in US showrooms soon, for a limited time, on a first-come, first-serve basis, so if you've been holding out for just the right family-friendly Maserati, you'd better move quick.
Maserati's partnership with menswear designer Ermenegildo Zegna stretches back a couple of years, and resulted in the Italian luxury car company working with Zegna to spawn the first-ever silk production car interiors. But this new upholstery using Pelletessuta woven leather is even more ambitious - and arguably, more stunning to look at. As carmaker partnerships go, this one is easy to appreciate.
