Maserati announced a special edition for the launch of the new GranTurismo which is based on the ICE-powered Trofeo variant with a limited production of 75 units for each of the two available trims. The model is called Maserati GranTurismo Trofeo PrimaSerie 75th Anniversary Launch Edition, with the long name being pretty much self-explanatory.
The PrimaSerie (which is Italian for the first edition) was created to celebrate 75 years of Maserati grand tourers. The special edition is exclusively available in two color configurations with distinct accents and special touches inside the luxurious 2+2 cabin.

The first option combines a Grigio Lamiera Matte exterior shade with Corse Red accents on the emblems, side gills, and around the black-finished alloy wheels that come with the 75th-anniversary emblem on the center caps. Those who want something darker can opt for the color-changing Nero Scarabeo Matte shade combined with Mint Green accents. Both configurations feature carbon fiber bits on the intakes, lip spoiler, and diffuser, benefiting from the sportier bodykit and quad exhaust tailpipes of the Trofeo.
Inside there is a combination of Black and Ice leather upholstery, with either Corse Red or Mint Green stitching and details matching the exterior. The 75th-anniversary logo is embedded on all four headrests, finished in the same color as the GranTurismo badge on the dashboard. Predictably, the special edition has generous equipment, including the 12.2-inch digital instrument cluster, the 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, the second 8.8-inch touchscreen for climate controls, the digital clock, and the Sonus Faber audio system.
There are no mechanical changes over the GranTurismo Trofeo, which means that under the bonnet lies the most powerful version of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 Nettuno engine producing 550 hp (410 kW / 557 PS) and 650 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear axle through an 8-speed automatic gearbox allowing a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in 3.5 seconds, a 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 11.4 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).

Maserati didn’t announce pricing for the 150 units of the GranTurismo Trofeo PrimaSerie but we are sure it will be more expensive than the standard Trofeo which starts from €226,200 ($246,492) in Italy. As for the fully electric GranTurismo Folgore, which is also the most powerful version of the car, it will become available at a later date.
