Don’t expect anything new and exciting from Maserati at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

The Italian automaker is continuing to focus its attention on the Nerissimo Edition models that were unveiled at the 2017 L.A. Auto Show late last year. Available on the Ghibli, Quattroporte, and Levante, the Nerissimo Edition envelops each car in black. Along with deep black body paint, each vehicle receives contrasting Black Chrome trim found on the upper part of the grille frame and the Trident, the side air vents, the trunk, and the Maserati badging on the C-pillars and at the rear. Meanwhile, the grille bars, door handles, exhaust tips, and window trim are all finished in an exclusive black shade.

On the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans, there’s a dark finish on the LED headlights and buyers can choose between 20-inch Urano or 21-inch Titano wheels, both in glossy black. The Levante gets different additions, with front and rear underbody protection and black fog light rings. The SUV has the choice of 20-inch Nereo, 20-inch Efesto, or 21-inch Anteo wheels, all in dark finishes of course.
