2007 Maserati GranSport Contemporary Classic

(from Maserati Press Release) The Maserati Gransport "Contemporary Classic" Equipment

"The "Contemporary Classic" equipment for the Maserati GranSport gives this coupè a more exclusive look with echoes of a sporty past, a much loved past which has been forgotten with the technological evolution of design.
This equipment remains faithful to the design trends of a classic brand whilst being born into an automotive world in which products are always developed as the results of performances and of mechanical evolution.
The "Contemporary Classic" softly highlights what technology has to offer the customer, showing that the quality of the product is improved by the details, which help to make it more distinctive.
In this case, the interior equipment doesn't upset the mood inspired by the body, but simply stresses it further and makes it more fashionable, without being excessive".

Giorgetto Giugiaro

MASERATI GRANSPORT "CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC"

As a tribute to the enormous success enjoyed by the GranSport, the maximum expression of the coupé concept designed by Giugiaro, Maserati unveils at the Paris Motorshow the new "Contemporary Classic" equipment.
The name "Contemporary Classic" is inspired by the car's style, an icon for Italian design which has become an instant classic. It combines excellent dynamic handling with top level comfort.

EXTERIOR

The equipment provides for 19'', ball-polished wheel rims.

INTERIOR

With the "Contemporary Classic" equipment, the car's pure elegance is underlined by a full leather interior with stylish piping around the seats and dashboard (suggested in the same colour as the bodywork), and is combined with other chic touches, such as light blue instruments with a vintage look and a full leather steering wheel.
Four selections of exterior and interior colours are suggested for the GranSport Contemporary Classic.

Exterior Leather Piping
White Leather (Natural Hide) White
Black Leather (Natural Hide) Black
Green Leather (Natural Hide) Green (Novelty)
Red Black Red
The Contemporary Classic equipment will be available from Maserati dealers from October 2006.

Looks great, but those rims look like they're going to be scratched really easily.

Only if you hit something.

The blue spedo and tac are so sexy, they make the Hoff look ugly.

Anything makes the Hoff look ugly. He's so old his face is practically falling apart from all that botox he injects into himself.

no..the proportions are odd and a little awkward. in person i've noticed it looks plain unless it's metallic blue with the charcoal rims...

This is a link to the past.. how?

I'm sure Coventry will be in here soon to tear this apart.

It is a link to the past of the 1990s when, in an effort to boost flagging sales of old models, car companies would release countless special editions.

It joins the mighty ranks alongside such other "contemporary classics" as the Citroen AX Elation, Ford Fiesta Classic Cabaret, and Rover Metro Rio Grande.

You are not alone. There is something about this car that is demasulated. If the car was a person, it would be like the dude who was a great athlete as a teen and then gained weight, lost hair, and got a bad job after college. When I see one in person, which admittedly isn't often, the paint never looks very good. It may be something to do with the colors offered, but it looks cheap. I think a new Vette is a sexier car than the Maser. It just doesn' t seem like a car a "car person" would drive, just one with the money to spend on a little bit of exclusivity and marque cache.

That having been said, I wouldn't turn down an opportunity to drive one!
