Maserati Brings GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition and Ghibli App to NY

Unique paint finishes, rim designs and logos are what set the GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition models apart from regular versions of Maserati’s attractive two-door. The President and CEO of Maserati North America, Peter M. Grady, says these “coupes and convertibles are for those who desire inspired automobiles.”

Bespoke to this edition are two (three-layered) paint finishes called Magma red and Inchiostro blue, and Maserati says these suit the wheels that can be specified and interior trim colors very well. Even the special “Centennial” logos that replace the Trident ones in the wheel center caps come in two shades (matte Smokey grey and Charcoal grey), depending on design and chosen hue; all in the quest for style and individuality.

The interior gets sports leather seats that “boast a particularly aggressive look with a contrasting decorative insert based on the three colors (red, white and blue) of the seat profiles.” Other notable touches include carbon fiber trim, custom kick plates with etched logos; the motif is also carried over to the headrests.

Power comes from the old 4.7-liter V8 the car’s been using since it was first launched, though in this latest updated form it makes 454 hp and drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic from ZF. Performance numbers remain unchanged.

Aside from the freshened up GranTurismo, Maserati used the New York motor show to also debut its Ghibli app. “Designed for iPad, iPad 2, iPad Mini, iPhone, iPod, it offers a special preview of the stunning new Maserati Ghibli,” it comes with “high-performance features that match the style and capability of the car itself.”

Functions include full all-round exterior view and color changer, car user information, easy access to useful links for owners/prospective owners whom it also allows to compare trim levels and check out options sheets.
