Maserati’s 562bhp Trofeo models to don the traditional hues of their Modenese homeland in new MC Editions
Maserati has revealed special edition versions of its flagship Trofeo models, celebrating their heritage with the application of bespoke colour and trim referencing their Modenese home. Available in all three Trofeo models – that’s Ghibli, Quattroporte and Levante – these might be familiar faces in the range, but all three have a charm all of their own, something these three patriotic special editions hope to capitalise on.
Unique elements to the MC Edition models are spread across all three models, and don’t include any mechanical changes, instead keeping the bespoke elements to the colour and trim departments. These start with the two bespoke colours that are available – Giallo Corse and Blue Vittoria – both representing the historic colours of Modena.
All the external brightwork and badging has been replaced with gloss black elements, including new badging on the rear quarter panel and b-pillar. As with their respective Trofeo models, the Ghibli and Quattroporte feature a 21-inch wheel design, with Levante models upping this to 22-inches – and all are now finished in jet black.
The interior picks up even more bespoke elements, including a striped denim insert into the standard sport seats, contrasted with blue and yellow bi-colour stitching on the seats, door cards and dashboard. The carbonfibre trim elements are also bespoke, with a blue-tinted resin finish. Unique MC Edition badges on the centre console and embroidery on the headrests complete the fairly comprehensive interior update.
Expect a jump over the Trofeo base price which starts at $140,860, $169,020 and $169,350 for the Ghibli, Quattroporte and Levante respectively. While this special edition will likely drum up some interest with potential buyers, they’re also just as much about showing off the bespoke customisation options possible through Maserati’s Fuoriserie program as they are about getting units out the door.
