Italian sports car maker Maserati may not be the first brand that comes to mind when you think of Japanese street culture, but that’s just because you haven’t seen the brand’s collaboration with Fragment creator Hiroshi Fujiwara.
Maserati linked up with Fujiwara to create two Fragment-branded limited editions of the Ghibli sedan: the Ghibli Operanera and Ghibli Operabianca. Created through the Maserati Fuoriserie customization program, the cars — one in a glossy/opaque black and the other in glossy white/opaque black — feature numerous Fragment style cues throughout. There’s a Fragment logo on the c-pillar, another stitched into the black leather and Alcantara seats, and a third on the exclusive large-mesh grille. The cars sit on 20” Urano matte black wheels, while the code M157110519FRG under the side air ducts commemorates the collaboration (it represents the Ghibli ID code, the date of the first meeting between Fujiwara and Maserati’s design team, and the abbreviation for Fragment). The Maserati Meets Fragment Ghibli Special Edition is limited to 175 units total between the two variants and its release will be accompanied by a special capsule collection available through Maserati.
