At a media event to celebrate the 10th Anniversary celebration, SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin, group executive chairman of Naza Corp Holdings recalled, "We commenced our journey as the Malaysian home of Maserati by launching the Maserati GranTurismo Sports and Quattroporte Sport GTS. This was quickly followed by the introduction of GranCabrio. 2014 was our turning point when we introduced the highly-anticipated Ghibli, an elegant and yet sporty sedan, which was very well accepted by the Malaysia market.”

Subsequently in 2016, Naza Italia - Maserati achieved its next milestone by launching the ‘Maserati of SUVs’, the Levante.

In the last few years, the distributor has introduced at least three each year of upgrades and face-lifts of the various models.

Another key attribute to Naza Italia - Maserati’s success is its 45,000 sq ft flagship centre in Petaling Jaya.

The state-of-the-art 4S showroom and service centre was inaugurated in 2009 and refurbished in 2015 to meet Maserati’s global brand identity.

Datuk Samson Anand George, group CEO of the Automotive Division at Naza Corp Holdings said, "We strive to make the entire experience of owning a Maserati unique and sensational – from the moment you walk through the doors of our showroom, to the point of your car’s delivery and the dedicated after-sales service. I am also pleased to announce that plans are in the pipeline for network expansion in Penang”.
