Since its introduction at the 2007 Geneva Auto Salon, the Maserati GranTurismo has been the focus of attention, anticipation, and adoration in the automotive press. With two doors, four seats, optimal balance, accessible power and the sexiest shape on the road, it is hardly surprising that the car has redefined the meaning of ‘luxury sports coupe’.
Inspired by the Maserati A6 of 1946, from which was developed the stunning Maserati A6GCS Pininfarina Coupe, the GranTurismo is reminiscent of a host of Trident classics from the Sebring to the Quattroporte, from the Ghibli to the Birdcage75. Styled by Pininfarina with a shapely form whose aggression matches its sophistication, the new coupe has room for four adults to cross a continent in sublime comfort.
With its 4.2 liter, 405bhp Ferrari-designed V8, the GranTurismo packs a powerful punch up to 177mph. Its optimal 51% rear / 49% front weight distribution embodies ideal balance for exceptional roadholding, so the GranTurismo is that unique luxury coupe which offers straight line and cornering performance in equal measure.
