Maserati is marking the end of GranTurismo production with a special edition masterpiece called Zeda.

The unique model gets a very special paint job too, with futuristic exterior shades that usher a new era in innovation.

GranTurismo Zéda represents a bridge which connects the past, the present and the future of the Brand.

From the rear to the front, the surfaces change and become richer, shifting from a light satin finish to a burnished “metallurgic” effect.

The midsection slowly morphs once again, deepening all the way to Maserati blue.

The blue also evolves, becoming energetic, electric, it seems alive, it seems like a mirror.

The finished overall effect is a masterpiece in the complex use and juxtaposition of vastly differing effects.

The end of production of the Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio marks the beginning of a new path for the Modena plant.

The four-seat, two-door coupe made its debut at the 2007 Geneva motor show.

With Pininfarina’s classic design and a naturally aspirated V8 engine, the car was designed as a modern interpretation of the Maserati A6 1500 of 1947.

The iconic 4.7-litre Ferrari V8 that powers the car delivers 343kW of power at 7000 rpm and 520Nm of torque at 4750 rpm.

Work is already under way to update the production line in view of a total renovation that will see the facility devoted to the construction of the new super sports model, a high-performance car, characterised by state-of-the art technology and scheduled to launch in 2020.

In parallel, work has already started on a paint shop, a completely new addition to the facility, equipped with low environmental-impact, innovative technologies and boasting a special design enabling customers to personally view their cars as they are painted.
