Italian studio Touring Supperleggera will present at the Geneva Motor Show, the open-air Grand Tourer Sciàdipersi. The car is built on the basis of the Maserati GranCabrio and draws inspiration from the Maserati 5000GT Persian Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi.

According to the chief designer of Touring Supperleggera, Louis de Fribribekera, the main thing in the car is its proportions. You can argue about specific stylistic decisions, but the proportions are either perfect or not. The Sciàdipersi cabriolet differs from the donor in a new body with a pointed front part and rear Kamma tail, as well as a lounge trimmed with chocolate and cream-colored leather with orange stitching.

Maserati 5000GT for Pahlavi was built on the civilian 3500GT chassis, but equipped with a five-liter engine from the 450S racing. The unit produced 325, and in a later version 340 horsepower.

Sciàdipersi is equipped with the same 4.7-liter atmospheric V8 engine with 460 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque as the original GranCabrio. The dynamic characteristics are hardly different: Maserati accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, and its maximum speed is 288 kilometers per hour.

Last year, the Touring Supperleggera showed Sciàdipersi coupe in Geneva. The inspiration for the car also served as the Maserati 5000GT and the Orient Express luxury passenger train. Coupe built on units of Maserati Gran Turismo.
