Maserati today has announced that it has teamed up with Italian fashion house Fendi to create a high fashion special edition of the GranCabrio for the fashionista in everyone. The resulting creation, the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi is set to be unveiled at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
This special edition GranCabrio is being marketed as some-sort of bespoke, made in Italy, fashion piece, when in all reality, it’s just a run-of-the-mill (if you can call it that) GranCabrio with some special bits grafted on. The GranCabrio Fendi gets a unique paint job, dubbed “Grigio Fiamma Fendi,” which Maserati says is, “A special dark grey with an iridescent golden finish on the surface.” The GranCabrio Fendi also gets Fendi’s “F” Logo on its 20-inch wheels, and along the rocker panel.
Inside the GranCabrio Fendi gets a unique wood trim and embroidery in “Fendi Yellow.” Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the GranCabrio Fendi’s interior is its unique leather: taken from Fendi’s “Selleria” line, the brown leather is distinctive for its maze-like design. The unique leather continues throughout the cabin, and onto the included luggage set. Rounding out the cabin is a silver oval plaque engraved with Maserati’s Trident and Fendi’s F, and a five-digit series number.
The 440 hp from the Ferrari-derived 4.7-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic gearbox remain unchanged.
