The exteriors

Ultra-fine aluminium pigments have been used to create a special effects paint that gives the sense of depth.

This paint has also been applied on the 20-inch Mercurio rims to create a chromatic contrast, which makes the car look both sporty and classic.

The interiors

This is where the collaboration between Zegna and Maserati really comes into play. Zegna has reinvented its fabrics for automotive applications.

Classical warm hues, that are integral to Zegna's latest men's fashion collection, have been reinterpreted with masculine herringbone patterns to convey a sophisticated character.

Genuine soft leather has been used in seats, door panels, and roof lining. With fabrics created in greige tint and given an antique look matt walnut finish, the car's interiors look balanced and harmonious.

The exclusive touch

The collaboration between the two luxury brands is announced through two plates obtained from aluminium ingot bearing the words: Ermenegildo Zegna Exclusively for Maserati.

While one is positioned on the outside of the pillar, the other is personalised with a limited series number and is applied to the central console.

A fabric label, the likes sewed into the linings of a Zegna suit, can also be found behind the sun visor.
