Maserati GT

The Maserati GranTurismo is the first modern, two-door, four-seater coupé that delivers much more than its sensual beauty initially suggests. Pininfarina’s latest creation was destined for greatness right from its debut at the 2007 Geneva Motorshow. The car can trace its heritage right back to the very first GranTurismo produced by Maserati, the 1947 A6 1500 GT Pininfarina and it also incorporates the innovation and impact of the Birdcage 75th, the futuristic concept car that, in 2005, suggested the lines for future Maserati models .

For over sixty years Maserati has been a leading constructor of luxury automobiles. The marque is renowned for its high performance, comfort and overall safety. The GranTurismo does not stray from this tradition thanks to its distinct personality, its perfect blend of power and elegance, its adventurous design and surprising practicality.

The muscular and aerodynamic shape has been carefully studied down to the smallest details and is the fruit of extensive wind tunnel testing. This build quality is continued in the mechanical components: the V8 engine has all the characteristics of a competition-level power unit. It was developed to respond instantly to the accelerator and reward with previously unheard of driving pleasure.

The GranTurismo scores top marks when it comes to style, technology and craftsmanship, characteristics that have been recognised by its winning of numerous international ‘Best Car’ awards. This is testimony to the competence, professionalism and attention to detail that makes each Maserati truly unique.
