Fendi and Maserati launch the Maserati Grancabrio Fendi
September 2011: The Frankfurt Motor show held from 13-25 September, witnessed the coming together of two iconic Italian luxury houses -Fendi and Maserati. The brands showcased their first joint creation Maserati GranCabrio Fendi at this much-revered motor show.
Maserati GranCabrio is crafted at the historical Maserati headquarters at Modena, using materials and colours designed by Silvia Fendi. The car has a three-layered dark grey body colour named Grigio Fiamma Fendi, developed specially for Maserati GranCabrio, and is combined with a gold finish on the surface.
Fendi’s famous Selleria leather has been used for the gear lever and the profiles of the floor mats. A silver oval plaque with engraving of the Maserati trident, the Fendi logo and the 5 digit series number (five being an iconic number for Fendi) is located on the dashboard, in front of the passenger seat and on both sides of the black cloth folding roof.
Powered by 4.7L V8 engine with automatic transmission and 20 inch Trident design alloy, the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi represents a prefect blend between handmade craftsmanship and the cutting edge technology.
