If you’re drooling over the Maserati MC20 launched a couple of months ago, reserve your charm for this concept Maserati designed by Samuele Errico Piccarini. As a part of his project during the Transportation Design degree at IED Turin, the designer created a blueprint of a Maserati for the year 2025. Samuele likes to call it Maserati GranTurismo Targa. A beautiful insight into the future of the Italian brand, the GT roadster overshadows the real-life MC20 by a long way. Visually, this has to be the most inspiring Maserati design in decades – making our hair stand on end just with one glance at the sharp aesthetics of the car!
Preserving the Maserati heritage while being sporty and presumably, luxurious – the GranTurismo Targa lends the brand a fresh breath of air. The floating roof is made for people who like to feel the wind while being pushed back in their seats, accelerating on the freeway. The front of the car is dominated by an intimidating grille and muted semi-circular daytime running lights while the rear has a futuristic swag with the flowing brake lights. When viewed upfront and from the side, this deep navy blue Maserati is ultra-muscular with a character of its own!
The huge wheels give the futuristic supercar a sense of unprecedented road presence. That’s complemented by the flared fenders, gorgeous glass trunk lid, and beefy exhaust outlets. The designer’s creativity has resulted in the stunning proportions of the Maserati GranTurismo Targa – and yes, it is one ride we want to see on the roads. It’s that stunning. What do you think?
