The Maserati GranTurismo had a good run for its money. It survived for 12 years and that makes it a fossil in car-terms. The car has undergone a lot of modern tweaks in those 12 years, but the age began to show.

The last Maserati GranTurismo has rolled from the production line -for now- and got a special name and colorsceem. The Maserati GranTurismo Zéda feels like there were big troubles in the spray booth, but Maserati did this deliberately. Everything has meaning.

That meaning? We will tell you about that. The matte white at the back presents the past (maybe that’s why the back bumper was painted really bad), the grey is the transition and the metallic blue stand for the future, the new technology, the electrification. Yes, the future of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio will have some kind of electric powering.

The production line of the Maserati GranTurismo en GranCabrio will now move from Modena to Turin. The site at Modena is going to get a renovation, so Maserati can produce its all-new high-performance sports car there. 

And for now: Thank you, Maserati, for giving us the Mona Lisa of cars! The beautiful GranTurismo.
