Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary Swimsuit Issue: Heidi Klum in a Maserati
Maserati celebrates the North American roll out of the all-new 2014 Ghibli, Quattroporte and GranTurismo lines with a 7-page pictorial feature, “Beyond the Swimsuit” in the introduction part of Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary Swimsuit Issue.
“We started our next 100 years of craftsmanship by kicking off 2014 with the launch of one of the best received Super Bowl commercials, “Strike,” featuring all new Maserati Ghibli, and extending the brand to another massive cultural icon, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 50th Anniversary issue,” said Harald Wester, CEO of Maserati SPA.
“We’ve prepared a new line-up of Maserati cars with the glamorous Quattroporte, the 4-door daily performer Ghibli, and the sporty GranTurismo Convertible, and this massive effort deserves the largest audience platforms to take notice.”
AWD mid-size four-door luxury sports sedan vehicle, Maserati Ghibli was first unveiled in the US in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Powered by a Ferrari built twin-turbo V6 engine capable of over 400 hp, Ghibli uses an advanced suspension, Brembo brakes and has an extensive use of aluminum.
Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition concept is the result of close collaboration between both companies. Maserati GranTurismo line sees 2 versions of the two-door, four-seat featured in the magazine.
“Sports Luxury clientele continue to be offered more of the same,” said Wester. “The Quattroporte, Ghibli and GranTurismo/GranCabrio lines re-fill the void with a genuine Italian balance of beauty, comfort and exhilarating driving sensation. They cater a visceral experience and understatement that Maserati engineers and designers perfected.”
“I had a great time driving the new Maseratis for their new campaign shot by Francesco Carrizoni,” said Heidi Klum.
The spread has been shot by Italian Master Photographer, Francesco Carrozzini. It features Heidi Klum, the Hollywood star with the Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition, the business woman with the Ghibli S Q4, and thrill-seeker with GranTurismo MC Stradale Trofeo Race Car.
