Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna shows beige is the new black

The Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition (try saying that three times quickly) was born as a result of a collaboration between Maserati and the world renowned fashion house, in case you hadn’t guessed.

As a result, it’s been tarted up with a ‘special effect’ paint finish that uses a gloss black primer and top layers with ultra-fine aluminium paint pigments. Apparently it ‘simulates the fluidity and purity of metal’, but we’ll have have to take their word for it.

Ermenegildo Zegna has gone to town on the car’s interior. The car’s seats, door panels and roof lining are finished in genuine soft leather with a ‘velvet-smooth’ bright fabric that ‘guarantees the level of performance needed for automotive platforms.
