2004 Maserati Coupé 90th Anniversary Edition
Maserati was founded in Bologna Italy on the 1st December 1914, officially known as Societa Anonima Officine Alfieri Maserati. To mark the commencement of Maserati’s 90th birthday celebrations, a limited series of Maserati Coupes and Spyders have been commissioned, appropriately named the 90th Anniversary Edition.
The Anniversary Coupe and Spyder models feature tailoring options never previously been produced, along with the most expensive and exotic options rarely seen before. These special features include:
-Aluminium or red brake calipers -Aluminium racing pedals -Carbon fibre steering wheel -Carbon fibre door trims -Carbon fibre door sills -Carbon fibre roll bars (Spyder only) -Dark metallic silver 7-spoke 18 inch alloys -Chrome front grill with red Trident accents -Chrome trident badge on front -Commemorative individually numbered 90th Anniversary plaque -Electronic Skyhook suspension system -Rear Parking sensors
Just 30 examples of the Maserati Coupe and Spyder models will reach our shores between April and September 2004. The Anniversary models will be available in both transmission options, traditional 6-speed manual shift as well as 6-speed Cambiocorsa versions.
The Anniversary Coupe and Spyder models will be available in just 4 colours, the feature colour being Maserati’s traditional racing colour, Rosso Mondiale. Also available will be Grigio Touring (light metallic silver), Grigio Alfieri (dark metallic silver) and Nero Carbonio (metallic black).
Whilst the Maserati Anniversary models are extremely limited, they also represent wonderful value. The total cost of all the exclusive options in the Anniversary models is in excess of $25,000. The Maserati Coupe and Spyder Anniversary limited edition models are priced at just $10,000 more than the normal Coupe and Spyder models.
