Performance

Right off the bat you will experience more power than previous models due to an additional 24 horsepower pouring out of the 4.7 Liter engine for a phenomenal total of 460 HP.

For a model that is considered the mid range option in the GT line, you are receiving the strongest engine they currently have available making this model a must have for those that may not be able to afford the MC.

Exterior

The already stylish and eloquent exterior has been slightly modified in an effort to capture the attention of those that may not have enjoyed the classic look of the GT.

The lights are now tinted for a smoky appearance on the front and rear of the vehicle and LED's are now visible in the eyes of this beast for an eye-catching visual at night.

The front end now has air intakes on each side of the grill for that unique appearance on the newly designed front fascia that is more aggressive than years past.

Interior

The interior has minor changes, such as the steering wheel and seating but overall the changes are minimal. This model has needed an overhaul in years and despite the base being the same; it is enough of a movement in the right direction to satisfy enthusiasts.

The 2012 Maserati GranTurismo Sport is a vast improvement over its predecessors making this a collectible that ushers in a new era of Maserati excellence.
