The new-generation Maserati Quattroporte made its debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and now the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show will bring us the Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition — a concept car that brings an "unique new look in color scheme, materials and finish." According to Maserati, a production version is expected to arrive in 2014.
As it name suggests, the concept was designed in cooperation with Ermenegildo Zegna — an Italian luxury fashion house, specialized in men’s clothing. The concept is painted in a special finish that uses ultra-fine aluminum pigments and simulates the fluidity and purity of metal. For the interior, the concept adds classical warm hues, like moka and greige — key colors in Zegna’s latest men’s fashion collections.
Maserati wrapped the seats, door panels and roof lining in genuine soft leather, while Zegna added a velvet-smooth, bright fabric.

The Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition concept car to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show features a unique new look in colour scheme, materials and finish. The car, presented as a limited edition concept, is intended for development into a production version in 2014 and will maintain the same personality and quality of the current Quattroporte range.
Ermenegildo Zegna’s concept for the Maserati Quattroporte limited edition is the result of a close collaboration between two companies that are linked by history, tradition and exclusivity.
The exterior of the Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition concept car features a special effect paint finish that simulates the fluidity and purity of metal, by using ultra-fine aluminium pigments. A gloss black primer amplifies the brilliance of the aluminium pigments and creates a sensation of depth. The platinum metal colour effect finish is warmly nuanced to express the car’s classic and sophisticated yet technically advanced character.
The material and chromatic research behind the Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition is based on a play between the classical and the contemporary.
A leading role in the Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition concept car is played by its interior. Classical warm hues like moka and greige are re-interpreted in a modern key to emulate Zegna’s latest men’s fashion collections, conveying a formal, sophisticated character. Interior components such as seats, door panels and roof lining are finished in genuine soft leather, in addition to a velvet-smooth, bright fabric that, due to Zegna’s vast experience and know-how, guarantees the level of performance needed for automotive applications.
