From September this year the 2005 Maserati Coupe and Spyder will be available from dealers across the UK.
The main change externally is to the front bumper which now features a horizontally ribbed radiator grille, inspired by the Quattroporte. It reflects the ‘family’ feel of the Maserati model range. The rear bumper is also new and more dynamic featuring wide air intakes shielded by a black mesh grille.
The link with the Quattroporte continues in the Coupe with the classic oval-and-arrow badge now mounted on the rear side panels, as styled by Frua in 1963.
The interior of the Coupe and Spyder can now be contrasted with different coloured leathers for the central zone of the seats and dashboard, and the upper door panels. The instruments now feature new, sporty, blue and white graphics that are easier to read.
Seven-spoke alloy wheels are now standard to the cars while the fifteen-spoke rims remain an optional extra.
The aluminium-coloured kit on the console and the door will now be a standard item, and other modifications have been made to the interior with the central tunnel re-designed to provide a bigger storage compartment.
Also for the Coupe and Spyder in 2005, the gear selector now has a ‘D’ for ‘Drive’ option, to select first gear.
The final change is the announcement that Coupe and Spyder models now have a new metallic paint finish option with the addition of ‘Rame Ghibli’.
