Italian designer Fendi creates bespoke Maserati
23 August 2011

Maserati has joined forces with Italian design house Fendi to create a limited-edition car, the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi, that has been unveiled at Frankfurt motor show.

The major tweaks are cosmetic, because the car will feature the 4.7-litre V8 engine installed in the regular GranCabrio coupled to an automatic transmission.

The cabin has been fitted with precious leather on the instrument cluster cover, gear level and the profiles of the floor mats. The cockpit also features Fendi’s special wood trim on the dashboard, doors and on the top of the gearlever, all in Fendi’s signature yellow.

The car’s exterior comes in a bespoke colour called Grigio Fiamma Fendi, which is a three-layered dark grey with an iridescent golden finish on the surface. Fendi yellow also features on the brake callipers and seat headrests, with the styling house’s logo appearing on the seats, 20-inch alloy wheels and along the rocker panel.
