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.
MASERATI AND SALVATORE FERRAGAMO, A PERFECT ITALIAN PARTNERSHIP
Maserati has entered into a prestigious partnership with Ferragamo, the world leader in the production of luxury accessories, to interpret the outstanding class of the stunning GranTurismo with a sleek luggage set made from exclusive high-quality materials. This unique partnership will seduce even the most passionate devotees of Italian luxury. The GranTurismo's grille provides the inspiration for the exquisite luggage set, and the emotive slogan 'Salvatore Ferragamo for Maserati' is embossed on each individual part of the set.
To celebrate the arrival in the UK of the first Maserati GranTurismos and this partnership, Ferragamo's London flagship store at 24 Old Bond Street is currently displaying the complete luggage set in their window until Monday 24th December 2007.
The luggage set is available in two leather finishes: 'Firenze', hand-boarded calfskin which has a clean, smooth appearance, and is available in dark brown or Maserati blue; alternatively 'Modena' a sportier finish in a natural, scratch-resistant calfskin leather in black or aubergine with refined contrasting stitching. The five piece set comprises a suitcase, a weekend bag, a beauty case, a garment holder and a dual function shoe case with a removable compartment divider. These five items all fit perfectly into the GranTurismo's boot.
The luggage set is available to purchase directly at Ferragamo's London Store at 24 Old Bond Street, or through Maserati's nationwide dealer network, details of which can be found by visiting www.maserati.com.
