The Maserati GranTurismo is the Epitome of Italian Luxury and Performance

maserati-gran-turismo

The Maserati GranTurismo is a two-door, four-seat coupe produced by the iconic Italian car manufacturer Maserati that shares the platform of the Maserati Quattroporte V and parts of the Ferrari 599 GTB and Scaglietti. Unveiled in 2007 as a coupe at the Geneva Motor Show the GranTurismo is now one of Aston Martin’s most popular models.  According to Maserati, “The Maserati GranTurismo succeeds in combining unrivaled class and elegance with uncompromising sports performance like no other four-seater car. The external lines exude dynamic tension and sporting prowess from every vantage point: starting from the large oval mouth that surrounds the radiator grille, the bodywork seems to hug the car’s mechanical structure all the way to the rear, like a tight dress over curvaceous hips.”

Designed by American automobile designer Jason Castriota, the Maserati GranTurismo is the definition of Italian automotive luxury and class. With an estimated six-figure price tag hovering around $128,000, the Maserati GranTurismo delivers on all fronts.

Available as either a coupe or a convertible, the luxury Italian sports car is currently available in four models: the standard GranTurismo, the GranTurismo Sport, the GranTurismo MC Stradale, and the GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition. The standard 399-horsepower GranTurismo grand tourer–which has been in production since 2007–features a 4.2-liter V8 engine designed in conjunction with Ferrari, an automatic ZF gearbox six-speed transmission, and a 2+2 body derived from the Maserati Quattroporte V, with double-wishbone front suspensions and a multilink rear suspension.

Replacing both the GranTurismo S and S Automatica, the GranTurismo Sport was unveiled in March 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show, featuring a revised 454-horsepower 4.7-liter engine, a ZF six-speed automatic gearbox, a unique front fascia, new headlights, and a new sportier steering wheel and seats. The strictly two-seat limited edition GranTurismo MC Stradale was introduced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, featuring a powerful 444-horsepower V8 engine, the utilization of carbon fiber technology, and a new front splitter and rear air dam for better aerodynamics, downforce, and improved cooling of the carbon ceramic brakes and engine.

To celebrate the first century of Maserati, the GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition was unveiled, featuring improved performance and a number of interior and exterior design upgrades. Each and every one of these GranTurismo models encapsulates the elegant look, feel, and status that the iconic trident symbol provokes. Even though its run may be ending, there’s no car quite like the Maserati GranTurismo.
