Maserati + Fendi = GranCabrio

When in Rome…take a ride with Maserati and Fendi? Yes, it is now a possibility. Maserati and Fendi have joined forces and have designed one of the hottest items from Italy to date. Both companies pride themselves on their craft and their value of tradition. One could say these two extremely important aspects are what began the marriage of the top Italian designer brands. The child of these two exquisite companies is named, the Special Edition Maserati GranCabrio Fendi.

Silvia Venturini Fendi, of Fendi (of course), designed the newly ‘merged’ logo. Silvia took the well-known double F crest of Fendi and the trident Maserati emblem into a silver oval plaque. The special edition Maserati GranCabrio Fendi will feature the iconic trident in an illuminating yellow hue, stitched into the head rest and appears again in the calipers beyond the 19-inch alloy wheels – for those of us vaguely understanding car terminology, a caliper is the full-functioning burst of color seen behind the rims of the tires, in this case the color is yellow and the function pertains to the brakes. The most sought after aspect of the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi may just be its leather interior. The interior is actually produced with the Cuoio Romano fine leather used in Fendi’s Selleria line. However, the envy will be brought out by those double F’s. That is fact, not fiction; the Maserati GranCabrio Fendi will feature its leather seats adorned in the double F in possibly the most sophisticated way one could imagine. Not to mention, Fendi has prepared a limited edition travel kit made of items like suitcases which reports to match the car.

Women’s Wear Daily (WWD), has reported, “prices for the Fendi Maserati have yet to be determined, prices for Maseratis range from 135,151 euros, or $195,000, to 141,151 euros, or $204,000, for the sports version.” I guess we will haver to wait and see how much birthday and holiday money will need to be saved up.

The Maserati GranCabrio Fendi will make its first appearance at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
