FRANKFURT - September 14, 2011: The Maserati GranCabrio Fendi is the first major fruit of Maserati’s partnership with the Italian maison, Fendi. This union of two iconic Made in Italy brands is rooted in their shared values, such as craftsmanship, technology, excellence and tradition.

The GranCabrio Fendi represents the culmination of all of this: the perfect marriage between the art of handmade objects with the refined technology of a 4.7-litre V8 engine. It is crafted in the historical Maserati headquarters in Modena, with exclusive materials created in various colours exclusively for this project.

The three-layered body colour named Grigio Fiamma Fendi is a special dark grey with an iridescent golden finish on the surface. The wood trim, named Pergamena Fendi, runs across the width of the dashboard, on the doors and on the top of the gear lever, all in the iconic Fendi yellow, like the car’s brake calipers and the embroidered yellow Trident on the headrests.

Fendi’s unmistakable double F logo, stitched on the seat, adds a strong, yet elegant character to the GranCabrio, and it also appears in the centre of the 20-inch alloy wheels and along the rocker panel.

Cuoio Romano, Fendi’s precious leather from its Selleria line, has been used for details such as the instrument cluster cover, the gear lever and the profile of the floor mats. It is also featured in the luggage and accessories of the Limited Edition Travel Set.

The GranCabrio Fendi combines the art of Fatto a Mano (handmade) with Maserati’s acknowledged expertise in matching its critically acclaimed chassis with its sonorous 4.7-litre V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, all of which brings music to the ears of car connoisseurs.

Silvia Venturini Fendi’s specially crafted logo seals this collaboration. A silver oval plaque with an engraved Maserati Trident, Fendi logo and the five-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, folding cloth roof.

A special black car cover with ton-sur-ton double F logo dresses the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi.
