Maserati MC20 has left many speechless, thanks to its lines that combine tradition and modernity, giving life to a model that undoubtedly projects the Trident in a new era, also thanks to an engine that promises to be a turning point for everything that will come out of the Modena factory in the coming years. A new course and a stylistic language that is preparing to influence the models of the Italian car manufacturer.
However, there are those who do not want to put everything immediately behind them, still strongly believing in the stylistic features that have characterized Maserati in the last few years. Hence the project by Samuele Errico Piccarini, who thanks to his talent gave life to Maserati GranTurismo Targa, a concept car that imagines in a revolutionary way what could be the next generation of the famous Trident model. Luxury and sportiness come together, also celebrating the tradition of the Italian brand.
The Maserati GranTurismo Targa concept it is front-engined, as well as the current generation but boasts an elongated and particularly pronounced bonnet, with the passenger compartment which inevitably finds its place further back in the car body. From the Maserati 5000GT it then inherits the so-called “floating roof”, with the crystals that completely envelop the two seats. The GT can therefore be adapted to the needs of driving “en plein air” thanks to the cover that can be easily removed.
Also at the front, the aggressive grille stands out which includes a large grille and a set of thin LED headlights with semicircular daytime running lights. At the rear, the unique optical signature stands out, with an LED light bar which occupies the entire tail from one wheel arch to the other. A little below a cantilevered element that houses the two large drains. To facilitate access to the trunk of the GranTurismo Targa, there is an opening glass cover.
