Seeing the GranTurismo Sport in the flesh will get your heart racing. Thanks to its balanced and seductive design, its parent car, the GranTurismo, has been universally acclaimed as one of the most stylish coups of all time. The Maserati Centro Stile has now fine-tuned a few of its details to produce an even more elegant sporty personality that will delight enthusiasts.
Driving the Maserati GranTurismo Sport on the road will broaden your horizons when it comes to sports driving. The car is the outcome of a vast array of significant changes made by the Maserati engineers to the engine, suspension and gearbox. All with a single objective in mind: to establish the best combination of features in order to give the owner a car even closer to perfection, from every point of view.
The GranTurismo Sport 4.7L V8 engine stands out for its silent running, performance and reliability. An engine that inherits the mechanical sophistication which has always been a Maserati hallmark, united with numerous innovative solutions such as the special DLC (Diamond-Like Coating) finish used for the tappets and camshaft lobes, an innovation that significantly reduces friction.
The engines 460 horsepower changes personality to match the situation: from the discreet purr of urban driving to the powerful thrilling roar of sporty driving on the open road. The choice is in the drivers hands: he can set the output level by pressing the Sport button. Most of the 520 Nm of torque is available over a wide range of engine speeds for an outstandingly smooth ride.
The ZF 6-speed automatic gearbox with hydraulic torque converter guarantees an even more comfortable ride with no reduction in performance. The transmission is controlled by the MC Auto Shift software, with rev limiter override, double declutch and high-performance start function. There are five operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and Ice.
On the GranTurismo Sport, the MC Auto Shift automatic transmission is mounted directly on the engine: this layout, and the fact that the engine is moved back behind the front axle, provides extremely well balanced weight distribution with 49% at the front and 51% at the rear. This generates predictable handling, making the car more relaxing to drive, and maximises traction during acceleration.
Maserati has been manufacturing extremely high-performance cars with impeccable finishes for a long time. However, as every one of us has their own personal taste and preferences a vast number of details on the GranTurismo Sport can be customised. From the bodywork shades - two pastel and nine metallic, six special and three matt colours - to the shades of the leather upholstery, the colours of the contrast stitching and the large assortment of choice woods and even the carpets.
Seeing the GranTurismo Sport in the flesh will get your heart racing. Thanks to its balanced and seductive design, its parent car, the GranTurismo, has been universally acclaimed as one of the most stylish coups of all time. The Maserati Style Centre has now fine-tuned a few of its details to produce an even more elegant sporty personality that will delight enthusiasts.
The nose is the first part of the car to grab the attention: either side of the traditional Maserati oval radiator grille are two innovative large air intakes which not only improve the air flow and the cooling of the front brakes, but also act as a stylistic junction between the central grille and the new light assemblies. There is also a new aerodynamic splitter lower down in the centre.
Comfortable, luxurious, sporty: these are the sensations immediately conveyed by the interior of the GranTurismo Sport. The interior boasts exquisite materials, expert craftsmanship and obsessive attention to detail in a new form that combines perfectly with the closely-studied ergonomics. The objective is to prioritise the desire for a sporty drive while ensuring unbeatable comfort and spaciousness.
