Limitless is a thriller which tells the tale of a 'magic' pill which is able to enhance the powers of the mind, and stars Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper. Also staring in the film is a Maserati GranTurismo in Grigio Granito with Avorio interiors.
Universal Studios and Relativity Media were looking to cast a car that boasted style, class and breathtaking performance. The maserati GranTurismo ticked all the boxes.
Bradley Cooper said "Oh. Yeah. There's just one shot in the film where I didn't drive it. The rest, I was driving. The thing about the Maserati is, it's a beautiful car ... But it's also the perfect mix of luxury and sport."
This is not the first time that a Maserati has made a screen appearance: in fifty years of cinema, actors of the calibre of Alberto Sordi, Vittorio Gassman, Donald Sutherland, David Niven, Peter Sellers and Alain Delon have all climbed behind the wheel of a Maserati.
Producer Jerry Weintraub chose the Maserati Quattroporte to star in 'Ocean's Thirteen', the follow up to the film 'Ocean's Twelve'. Maserati's flagship model also played a central role in the second season of TV series 'Entourage' and the 2008 movie 'Max Payne' directed by John Moore and starring Mark Wahlberg. In 2003, in 'Charlie's Angels II', a Maserati Spyder Cambiocorsa driven by Robert Patrick was the car of choice for accompanying Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu. Eva Longoria also had a Spyder which was driven down Wisteria Lane in season one of 'Desperate Housewives'.Published 9 May 2011
