The new Maserati Gran Turismo Sport is set to replace the existing Gran Turismo S. Well basically it IS the Gran Turismo S, only restyled and tweaked to squeeze out even better performance.
Maserati Gran Turismo adds more Sport
The engine is the same as its predecessor a 4.7-litre V8, but has been optimised living you an extra 20 hp, that’s 490 hp should you ever need it and the 0-100 km in 4.7 seconds is the quite simply awesome acceleration that you would expert from a Maserati. The ‘Sport’ button on the dash doesn’t release the door on a hidden compartment containing a couple of tennis racquets and a shuttlecock, it opens the exhaust’s baffles living the deep throated roar that announces your arrival, everywhere you go, even at the top speed of 300 kph.
The front s restyled with a new bumper with sabre-shaped vents just below the headlights, while the side skirts are deeper and more acute. It’s not a brand new look but it’s definitely enough to justify a new model and besides it’s gorgeous. Everything about this car is ‘go-faster’ from the paint job presented at the Geneva Motorshow “Blu Sofisticato”, to the redesigned interior that has all new seats for a sporty feel and an angrier more muscular steering wheel.
The Gran Turismo Sport gets about 20% more performance than it’s predecessor, the continuously adaptive ‘Skyhook’ suspension is now standard, and with tighter springs and anti-roll bars, it’s 10% stiffer. These are small but appreciated improvements, but this car is really all about appearances. It’s even more muscle and as you’d expect with a name like this ‘sportier’.
