Inspired by the 1954 Maserati A6 G Zagato, the world-renowned designer, Paolo Boffi, has created a fitting successor to the iconic automobile in the form of the GS Zagato Coupe.

Based off Maserati's GranSport Spyder, the GS Zagato is swathed in all-new aluminum body panels and adorned with a "Z" on the fenders and the automaker's trident in the grille. The hatchback design may be off-putting at first glance (all we had before were these shots), but once viewed as a whole, the smooth lines and gentle contours make the GS a subdued, yet powerful coupe.

Speaking of power, the 400 HP V8 has remained, along with the six-speed semi-automatic gearbox. According to Zagato, torsional rigidity has been increased, while the wheelbase has been shortened by 180mm to make it as competent in the corners as it is on the concourse.

      zagato shmagato. This looks about as italian as the iron chef who makes italian cuisine. I think it should be called the Hyunderati.

      Maserati is one of those brands where bad pictures really render their car as ugly as hell. I thought the Quattroporte was an ugly pig until I saw it in the flesh, where it actually is a really attractive car.

      So wait to see it in real life before you pass judgement (also applies to your Internet supermodel friends you have never met)

      I think she's lovely in spite of her ugly silver coloring. Front end reminds me of a Lotus.

      OK, the first shots I saw of the car (from the rear) were gorgeous. How does a "world-renowned designer" allow a front end as hideous as that car. It looks nothing better than a 90's mobile.

      Its front reminds me of a fish.

      What a waste of time, effort and aluminium... looks mostly like some one-off brittish built-in-a-shed from the eighties.

      whats with the rear window having near intersecting lines with the side window. not necessary and certainly not appealing in the design. Too bad the back end is such a travisty considering the front wasn't terrible.

      I don't know if you guys are familiar with Maserati's history and design lineage but, this is pretty consistent with past designs of the 50's and 60's. Personally I like the call back to simpler organic design that draws on the past but looks forward. There are styling cues from the A6GCS and 3500GT as well but, it's only a vague resemblance, not a slap you in the face retro design which is good. I think it's a pretty handsome concept. But hey, that's why they don't just make one car for everyone.
