Limited edition cars are something that we often get to see. It is so common that sometimes even normal base models get the limited edition treatment. But some limited edition cars were built for special events or purposes, for example, charity or commemorative events. And this limited edition Maserati GranTurismo S was built to celebrate 150 years of Italian unification.

Maserati is building only 12 units of this limited edition GranTurismo S for the Italian market and the most striking feature of the car is obviously the matte blue paint work. The exact name for this exclusive exterior finish is Matte Sebring Blue.

The car is not only characterised by the unique matte paint work but also with unique trim levels and features. Firstly, the colour brings out the car’s aggressive and sporty body lines. Exterior carbon fibre parts further compliments those elegant lines. The front and rear spoiler, side mirrors and door handles received the carbon fibre treatment.

The brake callipers are made from hand polished aluminium. They give a contrasting look and it stands out beneath the black 20 inch wheels. The side skirts and the headlight cluster are painted matte black to add towards the aggressive and sporty outlook of the car.

As for the interior, some elements of the MC Stradale were added to this limited edition GranTurismo S. Many interior parts are finished in carbon fibre, for example the gauge cluster, centre console and some parts of the dashboard.

Lastly, a commemorative tag plate which bears the Centocinquantenario ("150th Anniversary") of Italian Unification is located at the base of the centre console. The plate also shows the official logo and the unit number of the car which adds to the exclusiveness of this limited edition production run.

The car was recently displayed at the Bologna Motor Show. Other Maserati cars were showcased at the show as well. The limited edition Gran Turismo S was accompanied by several other Maserati cars such as the GranCabrio Sport, the MC Stradale and the GranTurismo MC Trofeo. All these cars were displayed in racing livery. Other Maserati models such as the GranTurismo S Automatic and the Quattroporte Sport GT S were displayed as well.

Maserati did not reveal the price of the car but I would guess that all 12 units are already sold out.
