Maserati GranCabrio Fendi special edition

Maserati reveals a special edition GranCabrio convertible sports car, the Fendi

Maserati has joined forces with Italian fashion house Fendi to create a special edition GranCabrio. Debuting at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show in September, the exclusive Fendi edition promises to combine the craftsmanship and tradition of both brands. Built at Maserati's Modena headquarters, the GranCabrio Fendi comes in just one colour option - Grigio Fiamma Fendi. It’s a three-layered grey body colour, but in reality it looks rather brown.  The Pergamena Fendi yellow-tinted wood finish features heavily in the Fendi's interior and runs along its dashboard, door trims and on top of its gear lever. The seats are particularly nice, with a double ‘F’ Fendi logo stitched in, and the yellow Maserati trident in their headrests. Continuing the colour scheme on the exterior, the dubiously named paint contrasts well with the yellow brake callipers that are housed behind 20in Trident design alloy wheels. Power comes from an unchanged 4.7-litre V8, which is coupled to a six-speed semi-automatic gearbox. Producing 433bhp and 361lb ft of torque, it sprints from 0-60mph in 5.1sec and a top speed of 175mph. Dynamically it’s not going to move the game on, but if you’re after yet more exclusivity the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi offers exactly that.Read our Maserati GranCabrio review hereVideo of the new GranCabrio Sport in action
