Maserati GranTurismo


Geneva Auto Show is the host for The brand-new, long-awaited Maserati GranTurismo, styled by Pininfarina.The key words that describe the interior style are: modernity, elegance, craftsmanship, sportiness, liveability.Starting with the qualities that make it very pleasant when speaking of every day enjoyment (more room in the back than the average for the segment, the rear seats that have been designed to accommodate two adults comfortably even on long journeys, attractive design, wide range of materials, leather, woods and colour combinations available) and continuing with the strong visual impact inspired by the lines of the Pininfarina Birdcage 75th concept car, you can say that Maserati GranTurismo is definetly a car that outshines many other manufacturers.
The attention to detail exudes from a number of features such as the subtle chrome inlay that elegantly decorates the buttons on the dashboard and steering wheel, the Trident logo hand-crafted on the seat headrests, the Alcantara trim lining the back of the gear change paddles, the leather belt fitting, front seats, beautifully handcrafted.
As technical specifications that makes this high-performance sports car very exciting to drive, we can mention:
– V8 4.2 engine with 405 hp at 7,100 rpm and maximum torque of 460 Nm at 4,750 rpm, of which 75% is already achievable at 2,500 revs. Its maximum speed is 285 km/h, and it accelerates from 0-62 mph in 5.2 seconds.
