Maserati GranTurismo Sport Coupe
Maserati GranTurismo offers something extraordinary in a high-performance, six-figure coupe or convertible, one that embodies all that is compelling and irresistible about Italian cars. The exterior has curves in all the right places; the interior is lavishly appointed. There is an amazing, 454-hp 4.7-liter V-8 that is good for sub-5.0-second 0-100km runs. The droptop adds weight and lacks the coupe’s stiffness and response, but still looks fabulous.
Spec it right, Maserati hints, and you’ll hit the European magic number of 300 km/h, which is 186 mph. There are new headlights, an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system shared with the Ghibli and some Chrysler products, the latest generation of Pirelli P Zero footwear, and a new analog clock.
The sole engine is still the 454-hp 4.7-liter V-8, which traces its gestation to the belly of the 1999 Ferrari 360 Modena and has been screaming ever since. A six-speed automatic is the only gearbox available.
