The Maserati GranTurismo range, comprising the GranTurismo, GranTurismo Sport and the track-focused GranTurismo MC Stradale, blends high performance with exotic Italian design and renowned luxury. Mere figures can neither reveal the fascination of GranTurismo nor describe the distinct personality of each variant. To feel the Maserati passion you have to drive one.
In 1914, the Maserati brothers teamed up to build the perfect race car. Their contemporaries were individuals such as Ferdinand Porsche, the Bentley Brothers and later Enzo Ferrari – car aficionados and race drivers. All of them made luxury sports cars out of race cars, which became the impetus for the birth of the GT segment. Maserati represents racing success in all classes and the most famous races and championships – from Targa Florio, Indianapolis, F1 Championship and FIA GT to the Maserati Trofeo MC of today.
The Maserati GranTurismo was born to be the ultimate grand tourer with its endearing lines and engineering concept stretching back to the elegant Maserati A6 1500GT of 1947. The A6 has become the father of the Maserati GT bloodline, reflecting a luxury coupé with a Pininfarina body mated to an engine borrowed from a race car. The legacy of the GT ambition and pedigree continues to define the Maserati cars of today.
Today’s GranTurismo range offers peerless, performance luxury in daily commuting, on long trips or for more committed, sporting drives. The sporty stance and classic GT silhouette of the 4-seater tell of its 100-year heritage of famous Maserati race and road cars – a true design masterpiece by Pininfarina.
The three variants feature two powerful, naturally-aspirated V8 engines hand-assembled by Ferrari in Maranello giving the GranTurismo range its characteristic eager throttle response and free-revving characteristics.
The 405 hp GranTurismo features a fascinating 4.2-litre V8 engine combined with a smooth, hydraulically-operated, automatic 6-speed gearshift. The V8 of the GranTurismo Sport is larger at 4.7-litres, outputting 460 hp, and offers a choice of either the fully automatic 6-speed gearbox (MC Auto Shift) or the more race-focused, electro-actuated 6-speed auto unit (MC Shift). The 460 hp GranTurismo MC Stradale completes the top end of the GranTurismo range as a street version of the Trofeo MC race car providing a racing experience for four adults.
The sports exhaust with bypass valves creates the exhilarating Maserati sound. The front-mid sports car layout, rear-biased weight distribution and double wishbone suspensions, the hydraulic steering box, Brembo brakes and limited slip differential create the razor-sharp handling of a true sports car.
The GranTurismo range offers on-road luxury with its spacious interior with four comfortable individual seats, Poltrona Frau® Leather and drilled Alcantara depending on model, perfect ergonomics and easy-to-use interfaces. Clients can express their individual style with custom-made seat upholstery, coloured brake calipers and more personalization possibilities.
