In a year of consolidation and in the run-up to the launch of the Levante SUV scheduled for 2016, Maserati lines up its complete product range in Model Year 16 (MY16) version for the first time in Europe. With the MY16 range, Maserati upgrades all current engines to the Euro 6 standard and adds exclusive new contents for the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans.

Apart from the engines, the area of the sedans to benefit from the most innovation is that of the traditional customisations, thanks to the exclusive Ghibli and Quattroporte interior packages bearing the Ermenegildo Zegna signature, not to mention new mouldings and ornamental stitching on the headrests.

Other areas to benefit from new contents are driver aids and safety, with the Blind Spot Alert and Rear Cross Path system, user-friendliness with the Power Boot (motorised boot opening and closure, also featuring hands-free activation), the sound system with the debut of a Harman Kardon system and an update to the existing Bowers & Wilkins system, and the user-car interface, which now includes voice commands by means of the Siri smart personal assistant in combination with iOS devices. Further improvements in terms of acoustic insulation allow the Maserati sedans, Quattroporte and Ghibli, to more effectively meet the needs of their demanding customers.

The stand displays 3 versions of the Ghibli, the executive sedan with the sporty character, and 2 versions of the Quattroporte, the Maserati luxury limousine now in its sixth generation; the GT range is represented by the GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition and a GranCabrio Sport.

“ZEGNA EDITION” INTERIOR PACKAGE

The Ermenegildo Zegna interior exclusively for Maserati combines fine leather with 100% natural fibre Zegna Mulberry silk inserts on the seats, door panels, roof lining, sunshades and ceiling light fixture. The seat covers and door panels receive an added touch of luxury with stitching in a contrasting colour. The headrest is embroidered with an eye-catching Trident, the Maserati brand emblem.

Available in three colour variants for the interiors of the Quattroporte and Ghibli, this exclusive “Zegna Edition” outfit will be the most exquisite of all Maserati customisations.

The interior offering includes a choice of colour combinations: the Ermenegildo Zegna silk, always in Anthracite colour, can be combined with three different shades of luxurious fine leather, for three individual looks:

    Black colour fine grain Leather / Anthracite Ermenegildo Zegna Silk / contrasting grey stitching on seats, dashboard, door panel and headrest
    Natural colour fine grain Leather / Anthracite Ermenegildo Zegna Silk / contrasting grey stitching on seats, dashboard, door panel and headrest
    Red colour fine grain Leather / Anthracite Ermenegildo Zegna Silk / contrasting grey stitching on seats, dashboard, door panel and headrest

To focus on details, in the “Zegna Edition” version the outsides of the seats are in extra fine grain leather with contrasting, light grey stitching, matched to an Anthracite central silk insert with a micro-chevron weave of vertical rolls on the central seat and backrest area. Within this area, the central roll, with leather tapes on the sides, features a special macro-chevron weave adding to its three-dimensional feel and technical look.

On the door panels, the central parts are covered with Zegna silk Jersey and embellished by a diagonal roll pattern, with ton-sur-ton ornamental stitching and alternating rib embroideries. The same fabric is used to cover the car's roof lining and sunshades, the latter carrying grosgrain “Ermenegildo Zegna Exclusively for Maserati” brand labels on the inside. The sophisticated, luxury finish of the car interior is also expressed by the headrests, featuring an embroidered Trident emblem and contrasting stitching.

After setting off on Saturday 4 July from the Italian Embassy in Paris, the Tour, sponsored by Maserati’s French subsidiary and supervised by Guido Giovannelli - Regional Manager Maserati West Europe -, reached Modena yesterday afternoon, with cyclists crossing the finishing line at the firm’s headquarters building.





Apart from providing its 25 participants with a gruelling challenge, the Tour was organised with a specific charitable purpose: to raise funds for the Rêves association (www.reves.fr), which helps the dreams of seriously ill children to come true. On the principle of “a Euro for every kilometre the riders travel”, in 2014 the first edition of the Paris-Modena Tour raised 7,500 Euro for the French charity, while for the 2015 edition, which has just ended with more cyclists taking part, the amount collected has increased to an impressive 12,000 €.



The event brought together professional and amateur sportsmen including Frenchman Paul Belmondo, a former Formula 1 driver; two Spaniards: José Miguel Antunez, a former basketball player with Real Madrid and the Spanish national team, and Rafael De Medina y Abascal, Duke of Feria and a successful businessman; Gregory Galiffi, a famous French TV personality; and Matteo Panini, keen collector and owner of one of the biggest private collections of Maserati cars.



In a race of 5 day-long stages, with an average of 100 km cycled per day for a total of 480 km plus another 900 km in Maserati cars, the cyclists’ route led across the roads of Burgundy by way of Dijon and on to Vonnas, Georges Blanc and Menthon Saint-Bernard. They also tackled the highest Alpine road pass, the Col d l’Iseran, at 2,770 metres above sea level, before continuing through Italy with a stop in Milan and dinner at the historic Pirelli head office, then on to Parma and Modena, where they arrived yesterday afternoon.



In Modena Davide Cassani, former professional cyclist and current manager of the Italian National Cycling Team, joined the group and took part in the final stage through the Apennines above Modena, stopping at the Museo Panini, with the chance to view the marvellous private collection of Maserati cars as the guests of their owner and Tour participant Matteo Panini.



The finishing line was at the Maserati headquarters on viale Ciro Menotti, where the riders were welcomed by Giulio Pastore, General Manager Maserati Europe and Tiziana Zancan, Maserati Human Resources Manager. After the welcome ceremony, the cyclists enjoyed a tour of the plant, where the GranTurismo and GranCabrio sports cars are built.



Making the end of the Tour even more special was the presence of Giovanni Soldini, the famous Italian yachtsman who has been taking part in the toughest international races and setting new yachting records in Maserati VOR70 for several years now. Giovanni gave a warm greeting to the participants in this event in aid of a children’s charity and congratulated all of them for their efforts, especially in the searing heat of the last few days, in the noble cause of raising money to enable seriously ill children to see their dreams come true.



Throughout the Tour, the 25 cyclists taking part were escorted by a fleet of 7 Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte cars and other FCA group vehicles.
