In 2001, Maserati replaced the 3200 GT with the 4200 GT/Coupe , which it then produced for six years. It’s been 11 years since the last Coupe rolled off the production line, and now is when German tuner, G&S Exclusive, has decided to grace us with a tuning package for it. Better late than never, we guess.
Surprisingly, G&S Exclusive decided to make the old 4200 GT model look like an even older model, or more specifically, the 3200 GT. The changes needed for the transformation included new rear lights, a new boot lid, a new rear fender with a powerful diffuser, and new side skirts that suitably connect the front and rear spoilers.
On right and left sides of the rear spoiler, the tuner put in polished 85 millimeter double-ended exhaust pipes from the Capristo exhaust system (EDS & MSD) with valve control back pressure control and remote control functionality. The car sits on a new set of 20" light alloy wheels combined with a KW Variant 3 sports suspension system with compression and rebound adjustment functionality.
The revised Maserati 4200 GT/Coupe was then painted in a "Lamborghini Gallardo Orange" 3-coat glaze paint with matte black parts serving as bold statements to the bright color scheme. For the interior, the tuner is offering a very cool black paint finish with different carbon fiber elements.

The Maserati factory received a complete renovation, and in 1998 the company introduced the 3200 GT on which the Coupe is based.
