G&S Fahrzeugtechnik, based in Albstadt in the south of Germany has now demonstrated under its new label G&S EXCLUSIVE, how a Maserati 4200 GT Cambiocorsa can be distinctly more spectacularly configured, without detracting anything from its God-given elegance.
The nose of the sports coupé, refined by G&S EXCLUSIVE to become the ‘Maserati 4200 Evo’ is dominated by a front fender that replaces the original part, and which, with its cool air duct gaping wide-open, is reminiscent of the current Maserati-Coupé GranTurismo. It’s no wonder, as the entire radiator grille comes straight from that model. The trident emblem of the mark, as well as the lighting units (fog lights, parking lights and blinkers), have been retained from the original front fender. G&S has additionally mounted a brand new engine bonnet with striking curvature and exhaust outlets for warm air.
For many Maserati fans, the ‘update’ of the rear lights in the 2001 introduction of the new model Maserati 4200 GT, replacing the Maserati 3200 GT, was a real step backwards: The curved arching lights on the 3200 GT that had so much character were replaced in the facelift to the 4200 GT by lighting units that were far less sophisticated. G&S EXCLUSIVE has simply reversed this unloved upgrade and re-configured the entire rear end of the 4200 GT using the rear lights from the Maserati 3200 GT as well as a new boot lid to resemble the look of the 3.2-litre coupé. In addition, G&S has tightened the rear section of the coupé with a new rear fender whose powerful diffuser would be a credit and an honour to any GT racing car. As an alternative, there is also a version available with a more restrained rear fender without the diffuser fins. G&S has also created side skirts that suitably connect the front and rear spoilers.
For driving dynamics that are worthy of the sharpened soundscape, G&S has turned to a combination of a KW Variant 3 sports suspension system with compression and rebound adjustment functionality (optionally with added hydraulic height adjustment) and a 20-inch wheel set. The OZ Ultraleggera light-alloy wheels in sizes 8.5 x 20 and 10 x 20 inch employed combine sophisticated sporting visuals with an extremely low weight, which has a positive influence on the driving dynamics – just think unsprung mass. Dunlop tyres of size 235/30ZR20 on the leading axle and of size 275/25ZR20 on the driving axle provide plenty of grip. As an alternative, G&S offers three-part OZ Granturismo light alloy wheels with forged wheel stars in the same size mentioned above. In order to fit this wheel and tyre combination (combined with 20 millimetre spacers) perfectly into the wheel arches, the mudguards have been extended by 10 millimetres on both sides at the front and 20 millimetres on both sides at the back.
