Maserati Lounge Chair: Slower Than The Car, But Comfier

Can one truly enjoy soft Italian leather under their buttocks while they’re doing 115 mph down the freeway? Eh, maybe, but you can certainly enjoy it more when that sweet supple seat is situated in front of a 60″ plasma with a frosty beverage in hand. The sleek lines of the new Maserati Quattroporte served as inspiration for the Maserati Lounge Chair ($5,000). It was designed by Italian design firm Zanotta for the renowned automaker, who in turn designed it for your rump. Well that was nice of them.

2013 Maserati Ghibli: Sensible Spice

If Maserati were to give a Spice Girls type of name to each of its cars — granted, that’d be an insanely bad move — the new Ghibli sedan would be called Sensible Spice. A key player in the Italian automaker’s plan to sell 50,000 vehicles a year by 2015 — just 6,300 were pushed out last year — the Ghibli will compete with cars like the Lexus GS, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and BMW 5-Series. The Ghibli will feature a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine capable of 404 hp. An eight-speed automatic transmission and your choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel-drive will round out the package when it hits the US later this year.

2013 Maserati Quattroporte

When I hear the term “Italian elegance,” my mind races to freshly made cannolis. As it turns out, this time the phrase is being used by Maserati design center head Lorenzo Ramaciotti, talking about the 2013 Quattroporte luxury sedan. The differences the new Quattroporte and the old Quattroporte are subtle, but they include a new character line that runs along the length of the car, more prominent creases, and strakes for the hood. We know there’s a V-8 engine in there, but rumors say the 2013 Quattroporte will also offer downsized, turbocharged V-8 and twin-turbo V-6 options as well.

2013 Maserati GranCabrio MC

Led by its feisty front end, the new 2013 Maserati GranCabrio MC brings with it some aggressive styling. Of course, as Anna Kournikova can tell you, looks without results will get you into weird relationships with former NHL great Pavel Bure and Latin singer Enrique Iglesias. That has nothing to do with cars, does it? Still, it should be noted that the GranCabrio MC’s 4.7 liter V8 engine delivers a robust 460 HP and 383 lbs-ft of torque at 4,750 rpm. It goes 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, and there’s no mandatory listening to “Hero” every time you take a road trip.

Maserati GranTurismo

The GranTurismo Sport is Maserati’s latest road ravager, replacing the GranTurismo S, and undoubtedly pulling every single chick who gets within 12-feet of its ferocious front grille. Under the hood, of course; excellence. The 4.7-liter V8 churns out 460 horsepower. LED headlamps, new seats, and a new steering wheel round out the pretty package. Look for the GranTurismo Sport at the Geneva Motor Show in March–that is, if you can see it through the cluster of exotic babes.
