New Maserati GranTurismo PrimaSerie limited edition launched

Only 75 examples of the PrimaSerie will be made, based on the V6-powered GranTurismo Trofeo model

Maserati is celebrating its illustrious history of grand tourers with a special edition of the new GranTurismo, called the PrimaSerie. 

Just 75 examples will be made - referring to the 75th anniversary of Maserati’s first grand tourer, the A6 1500. Production of the PrimaSerie cars will be split between two configurations: Grigio Lamiera and Nero Cometa. 

Maserati claims the PrimaSerie “heightens the experience of the all-powerful GranTurismo Trofeo,” although modifications appear to be limited to cosmetics. For the Grigio Lameira version, you get grey matte paint with red detailing on the exterior Maserati logos, air vents and wheels. This is contrasted with the extra carbon fibre trim of the Trofeo model. There’s also ‘75th anniversary’ badging on the wheel centre caps. The Nero Cometa version brings black matte paint and replaces the red detailing with mint green.

Inside, you’ll find black and grey leather upholstery with the choice of red or mint green stitching, depending on your choice of configuration. 75th-anniversary stitching features on all the headrests, finished in the same Corse Red or Mint Green colour. The usual Trofeo levels of equipment apply to the PrimaSerie with a 12.2-inch digital driver’s display, a central 12.3-inch infotainment screen and another 8.8-inch touchscreen for climate controls, plus a Sonus Faber sound system. 

Maserati hasn’t alluded to the PrimaSerie’s powertrain, but we expect it’ll be unchanged over the Trofeo. This means a twin-turbocharged V6 unit taken from the MC20 supercar, pumping out 542bhp and 650Nm of torque. 0-62mph will be dealt with in 3.5 seconds with the top speed standing at 205mph.  

Pricing hasn’t been revealed for the PrimaSerie, or indeed if they’ll be available in the UK, but we reckon it’ll cost significantly more than the £200,000 price tag expected for the regular Trofeo.
