Maserati’s head turning Grand Turismo S now has a ‘Superior Black Edition’ crafted by tuner Anderson Germany. If you haven’t already gathered, the car is coated, inside and out, in black. But it’s defiantly not as plain looking as it sounds.
The car’s exterior is repainted in matte black, with tinted front and tail lights to match. Shining black accents include the front grille, rear logo and window frames. A set of 21 inch black gloss wheels replace the Maserati’s standards, and the car is dropped all the way around. Carbon fiber wraps exterior pieces including the mirrors, roof ledges, tailgate, and lateral air inlets.

Inside the Maserati Superior Black Edition there is, naturally, more black. Carbon fiber details extend to the interior on the door knobs, air inlets, door sill panels, roof liner, seat regulation levers, the steering wheel, radio mask, and even the shifting panels. A ton of media upgrades are included as well, such as the customer sound system, monitors in the headrests, a PS3, sub woofer and amp, and a loud speaker. Black Alcantara, carbon leather, and red stitching finish off the interior’s details.
Of course, no tuner would be complete without at least some kind of power enhancement. Upgrades to the exhaust system help put out an upgraded 485-hp on the car’s 4.7-liter V8.

The result of this indispensable measure is, on the one side, 13 kg economy of weight and, on the other hand, a more of about 12 HP. The whole made by ANDERSON power increase by means of exhaust enhancement, racing cats and software optimization climbs from already fine 440 serial hp up to meanwhile 492 hp.
The interior also has been pushed up by carbon packet, containing the air inlets, door knobs, the switch desk in the roof liner, the door sill panels, the steering wheel, the seat regulation levers, the shifting paddles, as well as the radio mask. Apropos infotainment: of course, customized sound system with especially made monitor in the dash board, monitors in the headrests, PS3 player, loud speaker, subwoofer and amplifier ensure the appropriate sound.
