Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna

After the launch of the Quattroporte at the Detroit Motor Show in January, and that of the Ghibli at the Shanghai show in mid-April, The Limited Edition Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna concept car was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show a couple of days ago. Developed for the centennial activities, rumour has it that the carmaker will sell only 100 units, at least for now. Future plans may include a small series production, although not a lot of details have been given yet on this matter. If it goes into production however, we may expect a couple of tweaks on what is now just a concept.

For this limited edition, Maserati worked with Italian fashion powerhouse Ermenegildo Zegna who tuned the Quattroporte to create a unique new look in the design compartment. For whoever is wondering about Zegna, it is a refined Italian clothing store that can be found in most of the major cities throughout the world. So what did they do? Well, basically the interior fabrics are all designed by Zegna. The seats, door panels and roof lining are finished in genuine soft leather, in addition to a velvet-smooth, bright fabric material.

On the exterior, the limited edition version features a special paintjob with aluminium pigments. The paint is composed of two layers: a gloss black primer and a platinum metal color. The car will come equipped with 20-inch Mercurio rims.

Powertrain options do not change from the standard Quattroporte. The limited edition car comes with a V8 engine developed by Maserati and assembled by Ferrari. It delivers 530 HP and 710 Nm of peak torque, enough to have it sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 307 km/h (191 mph).

The limited edition Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zelda is expected to go on sale in 2014 with an estimated price of $135,000.
