Maserati Intends To Make One-Off And Low-Volume Cars
Maserati's chief engineer Davide Danesin told Top Gear the Italians intend to take the Fuoriserie customization program to the next level with unique cars.
No, Maserati isn't bringing back the Boomerang. Unveiled 51 years ago, the Giugiaro-penned showcar with its iconic wedge shape is one of the most spectacular concepts of the 20th century. Much like the rear-wheel-drive, mid-engined sports car was a one-off, the company with the Trident logo intends to build unique cars for those with deep pockets. These will be a level up from the special editions offered via the Fuoriserie customization program.
The announcement was made by Maserati chief engineer Davide Danesin in an interview with Top Gear magazine. Wealthy buyers will be able to ask the Italian brand to build a one-of-a-kind model, and hopefully, someone will commission a modern-day equivalent of the Boomerang based on the MC20 supercar. If not, the next best thing would be the Alfieri that never was.
The Modena-based automaker is also keen on rolling out low-volume products. Davide Danesin told TG these would be Maserati's answer to the likes of Lamborghini's Countach LPI 800-4 and Ferrari's Daytona SP3. In other words, these would be completely re-bodied cars using existing platforms, either the MC20's or the GranTurismo's. That tells us retro-flavored vehicles are in the pipeline, so why not a Boomerang for the roaring '20s?
