Milan atelier prepared for Geneva luxury coupe based on MaseratiMarch 4, 2018
The Italian tuning atelier Touring Supperleggera will present at the Geneva Motor Show a “grand tourer” Sciadipersia. The car was made by order of an unnamed customer of the company based on Maserati Gran Turismo. In total, the company plans to produce 10 copies of the model.
According to the chief designer of Touring Supperleggera, Louis de Fabbriker, the concept of the car was borrowed from the 1958 Maserati 5000GT The Shah of Persia and the passenger train “Orient Express” – a symbol of luxury and romance of long trips.
The body of Sciadipersia is made by hand. Among the unique details: the rear pillars of frosted aluminum, the back of sharp edges, made in contrast to the more rounded front, a large glazing area in comparison with the original car, and a panoramic roof.
The interior of Sciadipersia, in which Maserati Gran Turismo is unerringly guessed, is trimmed with leather produced by the Turin factory Foglizzo. From the standard it differs with other devices and converted door cards.
Sciadipersia is equipped with a 4.7-liter atmospheric V8 engine with a capacity of 461 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque. The box is a six-speed sequential or automatic. A coupe with a mass of 1,700 kilograms can accelerate to 96 kilometers per hour in 4.6 seconds.
In 2015, the Touring Superleggera introduced the Berlinetta Lusso coupe. A revised version of the Ferrari F12berlinetta was built on the order of one of the company’s customers. From the usual “Berlinetta” the car differs lateral “skirts”, wheel disks of unique design and calipers of brake mechanisms of a silvery hue.
