Innovation comes standard with the GranTurismo. Drivers looking to equip their car with high-tech devices can select from state-of-the-art electronic options, such as the electrochromatic door mirrors or the TPMS, which continually monitors tire pressures when the car is on the move.
The aerodynamics that inform the GranTurismo’s design have been developed to minimize airflow vortices that occur around the car at speed. Radical side skirts exploit aerodynamic principles and bring further drama to the car’s profile. The rear punctuates the GranTurismo’s sporting intent and high-tech soul with triangular rear lights that employ 96 LEDs, and a wide aerodynamic diffuser opens out over the lower part of the rear bumper.
The key to the GranTurismo’s supercar performance is Maserati’s 454 hp, 4.7-liter V8 engine that incorporates a variety of innovative features. Designed by Maserati, built by Ferrari and shared by no one, this classic powerplant delivers power and speed in a tradition befitting Maserati’s iconic sports car. Emitting a deep growl at low revs, the engine’s roar is truly fearsome as the needle approaches the redline. MC Autoshift technology delivers stunning acceleration and rev-matched downshifts through a 6-speed, ZF automatic transmission.
Inspired by the Maserati Birdcage 75th concept car, the GranTurismo exemplifies magnificent design and brilliant engineering. From its sublime silhouette, styled by leading Italian design house Pininfarina, to its powerful Maserati V8 engine, this four-seater sports car offers thrills and exhilaration for everyone on board.
At the rear of the Maserati GranTurismo Sport, a number of details make the car instantly recognizable. Immediately apparent are the taillights, with a special burnished finish that accentuates the effect of the 96 LEDs that provide illumination. Below, the oval exhaust tips of the tailpipes are black, complementing the standard Shadow Line trim. The Chrome Line option, with its wealth of elegant chrome-plated finishes, is available on request.
The Maserati GranTurismo Sport features pronounced sideskirts, standard in body color and available in black on request. These aerodynamic features emphasize the exceptionally dynamic lines while also playing an important role in airflow management which is the outcome of a specific wind-tunnel design project, where they have the crucial task of conveying the flow of air to the rear wheels in the most efficient manner possible: an example of form serving function.
The front end of the Maserati GranTurismo Sport is an attention-grabber. On either side of the distinctive Maserati oval radiator grille are two large, innovative air intakes that not only improve airflow and the cooling of the front brakes, but also act as a stylistic junction between the central grille and the new headlight assemblies. There is also a new aerodynamic splitter in the center, below the grille.
Take Maserati’s design concept and make it your own. There is a huge range of customization options for the dashboard trims, door panels and rear side panels, as well as a vast array of interior leather and Alcantara fabric options for an elegant interior that emphasizes either luxury or sport.
The GranTurismo’s exceptionally comfortable sport seats are upholstered in the finest Italian leather. The contours of the seats and the seatbacks have been designed to provide occupants’ torsos and legs with plenty of support, especially during high-speed cornering. At the front, the seats are electrically controlled.
An interior that redefines grand touring The interior of the GranTurismo offers the highest levels of comfort, making long journeys a true pleasure. The onboard experience is unparalleled, both for the driver and passengers front and rear.
The instrument panel is highly legible in all lighting conditions and an rpm counter with digital readout clearly displays exactly the right time for gear shifts. Another important feature for sport-oriented drivers is the lightweight pedal board in perforated aluminium.
Maserati North America Inc. provides each new car with a transferable four year or 50,000 mile, whichever comes first, new car limited warranty.
Maserati North America Inc also offers Maserati Roadside Assistance throughout the new car limited warranty period on all new Maserati vehicles sold in the USA and Canada.
Lithe and sinuous lines create a sleek and aerodynamic exterior that underline the car’s racing pedigree. The shape of its dynamic front end is dominated by Maserati’s signature oval radiator grille, complemented by horizontal headlights, with LED daytime running lights blended perfectly into the bumpers. The long hood, with its iconic V shape, has three air intakes on each side, in the classic Maserati style.
The Maserati GranTurismo offers the latest safety features, including innovative technology that reduces the risk of collision. Every GranTurismo features the Maserati Stability Program (MSP) and, of course, highly effective Brembo brakes, the standard of the industry.
