MASERATI’S prestige, luxury and elegance, a work of art. Maserati means passion and ingenuity. a combination of Italian craftsmanship and groundbreaking technology that creates exceptional cars in which performance can be experienced to the full, for the ultimate in driving pleasure. The GranTurismo Sport is a magnificent example. this superb Maserati has reached new levels of design, technical sophistication, handling and performance without compromising the onboard comfort in any way. The GranTurismo Sport is the perfect blend of sportiness and elegance, a car of extraordinary character, designed to satisfy the world’s most enthusiastic and demanding drivers.
While maintaining the balanced, seductive styling of the original GranTurismo, universally acknowledged to be one of the most beautiful coupés of all time, the Maserati Style Centre has worked mainly on the front to give the car an even more dynamic look.The front bumper has air intakes, which not only improve the flow of air and cooling of the front brakes but also act as a stylistic intersection between the traditional oval grille and the headlights with their LED Daytime Running Lights.
The centre of the grille features the Trident symbol in chrome with red detailing, a tradition reserved for only the most powerful Maseratis. The central splitter offered in black as standard, the rear end tail light moulding, with a special burnished finish. accentuates the effect of the 96 LEDs when they light up, the oval exhaust tailpipes are black in line with the standard Shadow Line finish. Behind the 20” Astro Design alloy wheels the Brembo brake callipers can be clearly seen in a unique finish that further accentuates the sporting character of this very special car.
The interior of the GranTurismo Sport is a masterpiece of expert craftsmanship, top quality materials, obsessive attention to detail and superb ergonomic design.The sporty front seats with integrated headrests are the result of a skilful combination of aesthetics and functionality. The seat design, which is a distinctive feature even from the outside, gives the car a very sporty look, and is completed by a bezel modelled on the Maserati grille. Located at the base of the headrests, this element further enhances the elegance of the interior. The edges of the seat back feature intricate stitching to highlight the craftsmanship that is inherent in the brand. The rear seats adopt the same sporty design as the front seats, and also give rear passengers an extremely comfortable, anatomically supported posture. In addition, the structure of the front seat means that rear legroom ensures the highest levels of comfort even on the longest journeys.
Dialoguing with the GranTurismo Sport is an emotional experience, you feel this as soon as you take hold of the flat-crown steering wheel with its boldly profiled grip, behind which the elongated Trofeo-design gearshift paddles are perfectly positioned. Mounted on the steering column, they are longer than usual to ensure precise control when continually changing gear - even on the most winding of roads. The lightweight pedals in perforated aluminium enhance the feeling of involvement, providing a direct link between the driver’s intuitive skills and the car’s response. The instrument panel is highly legible in all lighting conditions and, with its digital rev counter, displays exactly the right time for gear shifts.
The GranTurismo Sport’s 4.7 litre V8 engine is the industry’s benchmark for high performance, smoothness and reliability. The engine inherits the mechanical sophistication which has always been a Maserati hallmark, combined with numerous innovative solutions. The special DLC (Diamond-Like Coating) of the camshaft lobes and tappets significantly reduces wear, as does the optimised-flow wet sump lubrication. All this, combined with precise engine mapping and reinforced pistons, helps deliver tremendous power, up to 460 HP at 7,000 rpm. As a result, the GranTurismo Sport has a top speed of 186 mph and accelerates from 0–62 mph in 4.7 seconds
