Maserati is planning to launch one-offs and limited-run specials based off its MC20 and new GranTurismo.

In an interview with TopGear.com, Chief Engineer Davide Danesin said the company wanted to go far beyond its Fuoriserie personalisation programme, and would be willing to create completely individual machines to meet customer desires.

He also mentioned the Ferrari Daytona SP3 and Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 as examples, which could see Maserati looking back through its archives to create future low-volume supercars.

If it works for Ferrari and Lamborghini it should work for Maserati, which has a longer history than both, dating back to 1914.

Maserati’s production lineup is currently six strong, with two saloons in the form of the Ghibli and Quattroporte, a pair of SUVs in the Grecale and Levante, and both fixed-roof and open-top versions of the MC20 supercar.

To this Maserati adds its Fuoriserie personalisation, and its Special Series, which encompasses special edition variants of some of its models, such as the Levante and Ghibli F Tributo, or the Fragment Design Ghibli, in collaboration with a Japanese fashion brand.

While the new platforms mean we probably won’t see a reborn Birdcage, a modern take on the 3500GT built around the GranTurismo or Boomerang based on the MC20 would be amazing. What would you like to see?
