Maserati Ermenegildo Zegna Design Concept at 2015 NAIAS
Sales during the past year stood at 36,500 cars resulting in an increase of 136% over those sold in 2013. It was the Ghibli that generated most sales volumes while the Quattroporte also noted extensive sales followed by the GranTurismo and GranCabrio sports cars.
Up in the spotlight at 2015 Detroit North American International Auto Show being held from January 12-25, 2015, Maserati premieres the Ghibli Ermenegildo Zegna Concept along with the Alfieri 2+2 concept and all-wheel-drive 2015 Maserati Quattroporte S Q4. These are presented with a host of enhancements, new exterior paints and more trim options.
Maserati Ghibli Ermenegildo Zegna Concept is the result of a long-term partnership between two noted names of Italian brands. Limited in edition to just 100 units, the car is powered by a 410 hp V6 Twin Turbo engine with Q4 four wheel drive allowing acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 284 kmph.
The Alfieri 2+2 concept, specially created in celebration of Maserati Centennial, receives a sportier stance as against the current GranTurismo. Maserati has confirmed that the Alfieri coupe will be introduced in markets by the end of 2016 and will be seen with either V6 or V8 turbo engines, while the Alfieri convertible will follow soon after.
2015 Maserati Quattroporte S Q4 is also being displayed at the 2015 Detroit North American International Auto Show where it is seen with new exterior colors – Grigio, Grigio Maratea and Bianco Alpi. The model also receives two new wheels to include 19” Apollo wheel with diamond smoothed, matt anthracite finish and 20” GTS with silver finish. Interiors boast of red leather upholstery with contrasting stitching. WiFi comes standard while the GTS variant receives a V8 twin turbo engine offering 523 hp power.
