As a further way of honouring the landmark, a special limited-edition model'irihe Spyder was introduced, with production limited to just 90 units. It was officially presented in September 2004 at the Paris motor show, in the same month as the celebrations were taking place.
The more sporty look of the GranSport Spyder was anticipated by the adoption of new front and rear bumpers, together with more pronounced sill covers. This version of the Spyder also featured lightweight carbon-fibre rear roll-hoop fairings inlayed with attractive blue polyester strands embedded into the weave. Finished exclusively in the specific Blu Anniversary livery, the Spyder 90th Anniversary sported exclusive design features including distinctive oval Trident logos on the front wings, paying homage to the 250F driven by Fangio in the 1957Formula 1 World Championship. Headlight cluster mountings were in contrasting grey, emphasising the profile of the bonnet and chrome door handles, ball-polished 19" rim wheels (with titanium coloured brake callipers), and the classic red-striped Trident adorning the front grille completed the exterior look.
Blue carbon fibre was also present in the cars cockpit, enhancing the upper and lower sections of the centre console and matching the blue and cream two-tone leather lining the seats, dashboard and door panels. The 90th Anniversary model featured a grouped centre console with blue-starter button and high-performance stereo system in place of the Maserati Info Centre LCD display screen. A commemorative plaque on the lower console indicated each cars serial number.
To coincide with the celebrations, watch manufacturer Audemars Piguet created a remarkable limited edition timepiece: the Dual Time Millenary Maserati in the dash.

The manual transmission is a six-speed that was available either as a GT (manual stick shift) or CC (Cambiocorsa) using paddle shifters. The GT version utilizes a foot operated clutch, whereas the Cambiocorsa (Italian, meaning "race change") is an electrohydraulic manual transmission that uses a Formula One-type gearbox with hydraulic operation and electronic management operated by F1-style paddles behind the steering wheel, similar to the system used in Ferrari vehicles. The system allows the driver to choose between four different operating modes: Normal, Sport, Auto and Low Grip. Each of these programs is selected by means of console-mounted buttons, corresponding to different types of operating mode. By switching between the Normal and Sport modes, the driver can select between different electronic stability control settings and, if installed, different active suspension settings. The Normal mode provides a more comfortable ride, whereas the Sport mode stiffens up the suspension and provides fast gear shifts of around a quarter of a second. Automatic mode electronically handles shifting of the transmission, but allows the driver to rapidly revert to manual using the F1-style paddles. The Low Grip, or Ice mode, allows for smooth starting and gear changes on snow and ice.
The transmission gearbox is located at the rear of the vehicle and is integrated in with the differential. This gives both the Coupé and Spyder a 48/52% weight distribution between the front and rear axles.
