Frankfurt LIVE: Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna conceptby Drew Johnson
Maserati showed off an upcoming package for its Quattroporte sedan in Frankfurt.
Maserati unveiled a new Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition concept car at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The stylish concept, created as part of collaboration between the Italian automaker and the clothier from the same country, will make the transition to a production model for the 2014 model year.
Based on Maserati's all-new Quattroporte, the Ermenegildo Zegna treatment gives the sedan and added dose of style and flair. The exterior of the concept is highlighted by a unique paint finish that "simulates the fluidity and purity of metal.” That effect is achieved through the use of a gloss black primer and the use of ultra-fine aluminium pigments.
The interior of the Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition concept is finished in warm colors like moka and greige and is said to be influenced by Zegna's latest men's fashion collections. Improvements include soft-leather seats, door panels and headliner, as well as a velvet-like fabric used for accents. Despite its delicate look, Maserati says the materials used in the car's cabin will live up to everyday use.
Maserati says a model inspired by the concept will launch sometime in 2014.
