TTAC Photochop: New "Baby" Maserati Coupe

ttac photochop new baby maserati coupe

The Maserati GranTurismo is one of the most beautiful cars gracing today's roads. It's literally breath-taking. Sketching a smaller coupe to seat near this automotive masterpiece was an intimidating process, but someone's got to make a living. Anyway, we know that Maserati GranTurismo is heavily inspired by the Birdcage concept. I imagined that the smaller and sportier coupe can take the resemblance to that stunning concept car one step closer. The whole car is lower and looks wider than its sib. I've also made the Maserati grille lower and bigger, framed by more aggressive aerodynamic elements. The smaller lights are also intended to make the car appear as if it's squinting at you. I can't say that my result will be a match for the final creation of Pinifarina, but I look forward to deferring to the master.

    Very nice! I can't wait to have one :) If I could presume to suggest, the birdcage has a higher aspect ratio grill, which is smaller. This grill looks a bit too much like the QP and GT. I bet they go with a similar design that isn't as tall. Regs and engine size mean they can't lower the hood, but it can slope down a bit more to reach the grill.

    Shame the rear axle isn't nearly wide enough for the body, making the rear wheels look small and silly, like a spare tire. A little bit like the smaller wheels on a new 3 series.

    only difference is the lights... but still, a gorgeous car!
