Compact and lightweight, the 4.7-liter V8 engine fitted to all GranTurismo models develops 454 hp, 384 ft-lb of torque and revs to an impressive 7,500 rpm.
Apart from aesthetics, the front spoiler, side skirts and slots in GranTurismo’s revised front bumper perform an important aerodynamic function, working together to maximize downforce at high speeds while providing additional cooling for the front brakes.
The striking front end of the GranTurismo has been completely restyled for 2018. It is dominated by a new, deeply cut oval front grille that proudly bears the Maserati Trident in chrome. The Trident’s bold red detailing is a tradition reserved only for the most powerful Maserati models.
The GranTurismo’s side profile—inspired by the historic Maserati race car, the Tipo 60/62 “Birdcage”—features signature styling cues such as triple air vent apertures in the front flanks and triangular C-pillars, on which the iconic Saetta logo is displayed.
The interior of the GranTurismo MC presents a compelling mix of functional motorsports innovation, abundant comfort and progressive technology. The front sport seats have optional carbon-fiber backs while also featuring the luxurious contrast of optional Poltrona Frau™ leather and Alcantara.
The GranTurismo is a genuine grand-touring automobile, offering ample seating for four adults. Thanks to its Easy Entry system, access to the rear seats is particularly convenient: Both front seats slide forward and back electrically, providing plenty of room whether passengers are getting in or out. Two individually profiled rear seats, along with spacious head- and legroom, a central pull-down armrest, two cupholders, courtesy lights and a pair of climate-control vents also offer excellent comfort.
The GranTurismo interior picks up on the dynamic themes of the exterior—with fine-tuned luxury and a sense of boundless potential. Details like soft, tactile Alcantara trim on the backs of the gearshift paddles elegantly invite the driver to exploit the full power of Maserati’s formidable 4.7-liter V8 engine.
The Maserati Stability Program (MSP) enhances safety through the latest technology. Developed in the most extreme test conditions, this groundbreaking system uses an array of sensors to constantly monitor driving data and deploys a host of safety and performance systems to provide optimum handling and maintain maximum grip.

With this system, a warning icon appears in the exterior door mirrors when a vehicle enters the driver’s blind spot. Three levels of support can be selected if the driver nonetheless initiates a lane change. Minimally, the system maintains the visual alert in the door mirrors; additionally, alerts are backed up with an acoustic warning. Or for maximum intervention, the system applies steering torque in the opposite direction of the attempted lane change. The intensity of this torque is also adaptable according to preference.
Adaptive Cruise Control constantly monitors the vehicle ahead, maintaining a preset distance. With the Stop & Go function, the GranTurismo will also adjust to the speed of the vehicle in front until it comes to a complete stop, if the stop is less than two seconds.
