The purest form of excitement. Open.


Uniquely, GranTurismo is at the heart of every single Maserati.

The original concept was enticingly simple. It involved fitting a sophisticated race car engine into a luxurious, handcrafted sedan.
Seamlessly combining these two worlds was, of course, far from simple. Yet it is exactly what Maserati did in 1947 with the A6 1500 GT Pininfarina and some years later with the 3500GT prototype: “The White Dame”. Such power had never been so beautifully packaged and delivered – opening up all kinds of new, long-distance possibilities.

A6 1500

The prototype of what can be considered the first GranTurismo – i.e. the first Maserati destined for road use and not for racing – was unveiled at the 1947 Geneva Motor Show. It was christened ‘A6’ – A in honour of Alfieri Maserati and 6 denoting its straight-six engine. Its incredible styling was the work of the renowned designer Pininfarina. Featuring a tapered two-seater cabin, three horizontal ventilation inlets on the wings and futuristic hidden headlights, the design and originality were immediately appreciated by the public.


3500 GT Vignale Spyder

The 3500 GT coupé was launched at the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, it marked the company’s entry into the growing grand tourer market and soon became a favourite of Italy’s celebrities and business leaders. A roadster version followed in 1959 - the stunning 3500 GT Spyder Vignale, designed by Giovanni Michelotti, the leading stylist at the renowned coachbuilders, Vignale. This soft-top Maserati was a masterpiece of proportion and was described in the press as a ‘rolling work of art’.


Ghibli SS Coupé

The late 1960s saw the birth of the supercar and some of the most revolutionary and breath-taking designs ever conceived. Amongst the true greats of this era was the Maserati Ghibli. Named after a Saharan wind, it was considered an automotive portrayal of ‘la dolce vita’. It featured exotic elements such as pop-up headlights, electric windows and magnesium alloy wheels. Plush sports seats, with wide ribs, rounded cushions, and a reclined driving position made this car a truly comfortable grand tourer, whilst a spacious 24 cubic foot boot and large twin fuel tanks enhanced its practicality.


3200 GT Assetto Corsa

Launched in 1998, the 3200 GT was the first of a new generation of Maseratis produced under Ferrari management. Innovative and visually dramatic, it also had all the power and performance that customers expected of the marque, being capable of an impressive 174 mph and 0-62 mph in 5.1 seconds. In 2001, Maserati launched a special limited edition of the 3200 GT, named Assetto Corsa. Its interior featured perforated Connolly leather seats, sporty drilled aluminium pedals, and 'Assetto Corsa' scripts on the sill kick panels. The complexity of its upholstery was a testament to Italian expertise and fine craftsmanship in leatherwork.

The White Dame

Sixty years ago, ‘The White Dame’, as the early 3500GT prototype was nicknamed, represented style, success and romance in the post-war economic boom.

The iconic Maserati logo is elegantly embossed in the integrated headrests. The three-spoke sports steering wheel features a heavily profiled grip and multifunction buttons, while the top and bottom of the rim are flattened to ensure even greater focus and precision.
