Fret not. The new Maserati doesn't have issues and isn't in need of therapy or anything. The baggage we're talking about is the kind you pack your clothes and shaving kit in. The slinky new coupe is actually the beneficiary of a little tie-in with Salvatore Ferragamo, which has produced a new five-piece set of fitted luggage inspired by the GranTurismo. To celebrate the car's UK arrival, the set is being displayed in the window of the Salvatore Ferragamo store on London's Bond Street through Christmas Eve. It's the perfect gift for that special someone who pretty much has everything else there is to have already. You can see it in the gallery below, which also contains four nice new hi-res shots of the car. We know that's what you really want to look at anyway.

      This is a GREAT car. Almost makes me want to go buy lotto tickets!

      Great looking car. But I can't help but think 'Aston' when I see it.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I always think of Aston Martin when I see the recent Maserati's. Aside from the trademark grilles, they both have very similar shapes.

      LOL. The analog clock reminds me of Infiniti. Very nice looking, refined, and screaming of luxury but I think if I had a choice I'd pick TVR Sagaris over this.

      the most interesting element of the design is the multi-angle roofline. it is somewhat similar to the GT-R, and i've never before seen cars like that

      There are 3 Maseratti Quattroports here in West Hartford, CT that I know of. Each time I see one I get giddy like a school girl. I can't wait to see one of these next year. I'll fill the camera phone with pics.

      As for the looks, I see the current Mercedes SL. Strange. But a stunner!!

        Only an hour and a half drive on a good day. May have to pack up hte son and take a roadtrip to Greenwich!
        • 7 Years Ago
        Garlinski, I don't think you'll need to wait that long. Miller Motorcars in Greenwich has one already.

      ? Bags? Is this really news? Press Release for this? r u serious?

      I love Maseratis. Quattroporte is fantastic. However for that category vehicle, its not really so comfortable. Once you've sat in a Lexus, its difficult to sit in anything else at any price.

      And the coupe looks like they squished the 4 door into a 2 door. Like it was stuck in the microwave & set to Defrost for 10 minutes. This car should have the killer looks & raw sex appeal of the Alfa 8C Comp!

      I guess I'm not alone judging by the other comments - my first reaction when looking at the pics was 'this is what an Aston Martin would look like if made in Italy.'

      It is rather attractive. but clearly takes some cues from what has worked so well for AM and their sales. No designer team works in a bubble so everything in the marketplace has some degree of influence.

      The very pronounced grills and larger than life marque logos tend to be the thing to do, but seem a bit silly. The prancing horse badges, for example, under Enzo were always small and understated. Neptune trident logos for old Maserati were too.
