Limited Edition Spyder to Star at Melbourne Motor Show
16th February, 2005
Maserati will present an exclusive, limited-edition Spyder at the Melbourne Motor Show early next month after celebrating the company's 90th Anniversary.
The Spyder 90th Anniversary features an all-new Blue Anniversary livery. A grey outlining has been added to frame the front headlight cluster, creating an appealing contrast and highlighting the front of the vehicle.
The new colour scheme brings out all the vigour of this droptop. The body kit comprising the sports windscreen, front and rear aprons and door sills only add to this feel. This version of the Spyder is also fitted with two aerodynamic headrests in blue carbon fibre, a feature that recalls the close ties Maserati has always had with the racing world.
The classic red tinged Trident takes pride of place in the centre of the chrome grille, itself resplendent against the blue livery. This symbol, teamed with the ‘ball-polished’ chrome door handles and the 19" rim wheels emphasise the natural gleam of the aluminium. The exterior look is completed by the titanium coloured brake calipers and the distinctive oval logos on the bumpers, a tribute to the 250F driven by Fangio in the 1957 F1 World Championship.
The interior too has been given a special finish that complements the overall look. Racing style seats trimmed in special carbon look material called Brightex, along with across the dash and doors, give the cabin an overall feel of sportiness and exclusivity.
Only 90 of the Maserati 90th Anniversary Spyders will be produced worldwide, with just 2 destined for Australian shores. The Spyder 90th Anniversary is being airfreighted directly to Melbourne after starring at the Detroit Motor Show in early January. The first arrival is due for June 2005, with a retail price of around $260,000.
