Subtle though they may be, Maserati's updates for the 2005 Coupé and Spyder convertible have been released. Outwardly, the revised cars both feature redrawn front and rear bumpers, a new front grille, and seven-spoke alloy wheels as standard. Within, there are new colour schemes for leather seats, dashboards and door panels, and revised, easier-to-read instruments.
The most recognisable distinguisher is Maserati's new ribbed grille (see gallery); inspired by the Quattroporte, it extends a sense of commonality across the trident's range. The Coupé also gets the company's classic oval-and-arrow badge on its C-pillar, as styled by Frua in 1963.
Both cars' cabins can now contrast the central zone of the seats and dashboard with the door panels via different coloured leathers, and aluminium-effect highlights on the enlarged centre console and doors become standard.
Otherwise, Maserati has added a 'Drive' position on the gear selectors of both cars in order to simplify their operation, and introduces a new copper-like metallic paint finish called Rame Ghibli. Both cars go on sale from September.
