Maserati celebrated GranTurismo’s birthday with the unveiling of the GranTurismo Sport a full decade after the first launch of the iconic GT. One thing’s certain: nothing does grand touring quite like Maserati. The style, grace and exclusivity that Maserati creates starts with the famous trident. The unparalleled purr of the V8 engine is sure to turn heads for miles around. This model’s newly designed interior includes trident-embroidered headrests. Maserati has stayed true to the GT, keeping the exquisite Pininfarina styling but upgrading the aesthetics and technological features.
The GranTurismo Sport houses a larger 4.7-litre Ferrari-built V8 engine, producing a thrilling 460hp capability and an unforgettable audible experience. The sprint from 0-62mph takes a mere 4.8 seconds with new wrap-around sport seat providing luxurious support to both driver and passenger in accelerating and tight corners. With the newly redesigned rear the GT Sport is sharper and more responsive, with an impressive top speed of 185mph. The new GranTurismo Sport is more aerodynamic than previous models, dropping from 0.33 to 0.32 providing an extra few miles per hour on tour.
The GranTurismo Sport has a completely redesigned front end. With an aggressive, modern and ‘sharknose’ hexagonal grille inspired by the 2014 Alfieri concept, either side of the grille are two large air ducts, newly lowered to improve aerodynamics. This GT Sport continues to incorporate the previous Maserati styling cues such as the three air vent fissures and triangular C-pillars, which hosts the Maserati Saetta logo. Modifications have been made around the rear, with new exhaust outlets and a new bumper creating a sense of grace and power. The interior of the GT Sport has also been restyled, including with new switchgear.
The GT Sport comes equipped with the Maserati Stability Program (MSP) which uses an array of sensors to constantly scan and monitor driving conditions, as well as utilising a multitude of safety and performance systems to ensure superior handling and grip. The GT Sport was designed to protect all passengers: each seatbelt incorporates force limiters and the vehicle features braking and traction assistance.
The GranTurismo Sport has been fitted with an 8.4” capacitive Touch Screen display. The touch display can be controlled by hand or through voice command. This state-of-the-art infotainment technology allows you to control all onboard features and is compatible with both Apple and Android mirroring functions, ensuring entertainment for all occupants on tour. The centre console features a new Maserati double dial clock, and passengers can all benefit from the Harman Kardon premium sound system fitted as standard.
