What’s in a Name
The Maserati Grecale is the latest in a series of vehicles with special significance in their names. Several models are named after powerful winds, like the Levante. In the Mediterranean, the Levante is a wind from the east, peaking in the warm summer months and associated with escapes to the sunny coast of southern Spain. Another model, the Ghibli, is named after the hot dessert winds that stir up sand in the Sahara. The new Grecale is named after the north-east wind that dances across the surface of the Mediterranean Sea.
