Maserati Launches Special Editions to Commemorate the End of the V8

Maserati will send off its V8 engine with a few special editions, including the Zéda version of its Quattroporte, Levante, and Ghibli.

  • Maserati models will abandon V8 engines at the end of the year.

  • A Zéda special edition of the Quattroporte, Ghibli, and Levante will arrive at the end of 2023.

  • An electric version of every model will be added by 2025 and gasoline engines will be discontinued in 2030.

Maserati is committed to electrification and the first step for the Italian automaker is to retire its V8 engine, which will be done at the end of the year.

At an event in Modena over the weekend, Maserati unveiled the Zéda special editions of the Quattroporte, Levante, and Ghibli.

This limited edition will commemorate the end of the 572-horsepower twin-turbocharged V8 engine with its unique paint scheme that fades from blue to white along the length of the vehicle.

While production of V8-powered models will end later this year, sales are expected to continue into 2024.

While the Zéda edition commemorates this engine, another V8 special edition will be launched at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.

Comprised of the Trofeo, the Ghibli 334 Ultima, and the Levante V8 Ultima, this line of models is likely to include the very last V8-powered vehicles to roll out of Maserati’s assembly line.

This means that the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder and the new Nettuno 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 engines will be the only remaining combustion powertrains in Maserati vehicles starting in the middle of next year.

After the V8 era has ended, Maserati will continue to launch new electric vehicles until 2025, when every model in its lineup will offer both gasoline and electric power.

Then, the Italian automaker will gradually phase out combustion engines altogether in order to sell only fully electric vehicles at the start of the next decade.

Considering the importance of gasoline engines in the company’s past, many commemorative editions are expected to be offered as more and more models are replaced by EVs.
