Maserati unveils Centennial models at 2014 New York Motor Show

To celebrate its 100th year birthday Italian luxury carmaker Maserati presents two Centennial models in the GranTurismo at the 2014 New York Auto Show, the GranTurismo and GranCabrio Centennial each receiving a host of special features.

Most notable at a glance are the new color schemes - GranTurismo coupe is a three-layer Magma red and the GranCabrio convertible in Inchiostro blue. Seat stitching mimics that of the car’s special Centennial wheel centers–the latter available in either matte Smoke gray or Charcoal gray. Contrasting white leather is available in the convertibles, while coupes get a mean and moody black interior scheme.

Both Maserati models boast a 454-horsepower, 4.7-liter V-8 engine. They use a 6-speed ZF automatic transmission as standard, and liberal use of engine and gearbox will eventually take you to 185 mph. Dual-cast Brembo brakes bring you down to saner velocities, and sport-tuned Maserati Centennial suspension is standard on each car.
