The 695 Maserati Edition is powered by a 1.4-liter T-Jet engine tuned to produce 180hp that is paired to an electrically-operated manual gearbox that has controls on the steering wheel. The brakes have been upgraded to Brembo 305 mm brake discs with a four-piston caliper, and the shock absorbers have been updated to special units from Koni. The exhaust is a variable back-pressure dual mode type, to deliver a different note.

By this time you would have figured out that auto enthusiasm to the level of fanaticism is a prerequisite to be a part of team IAB. And I'm no exception! As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! Since then automobiles became the love of my life and I grew up admiring anything and everything that purrs and has wheels. My quest to be updated with whatever happens in the glorious world of automobiles naturally landed me at IAB. So here I'm, as a petrolhead by birth, mechanical engineer by education and an automotive journalist by profession!
