Traffic-stopping design; new interior design; the ultimate in automotive performance and style
The 2011 Maserati GranTurismo is a very exclusive grand tourer that promises to be comfortable and luxurious while also providing impressive performance. Two trims are available: the base trim and the more popular S trim. The S trim is powered by a Ferrari-derived, 440-horsepower, 4.7L aluminum V8, while the base GranTurismo comes with a 4.2L engine rated at 405 horsepower.
A dual-clutch automated manual transmission, adapted from Maserati's exotic MC-12 mid-engine racer, is fitted to both the base and the S models. Dubbed MC-shift, the transmission is a revised version of the DuoSelect box that's offered on the Maserati Quattroporte sedan. Maserati claims shifting gears takes only 100 milliseconds. The S Automatic version adds a ZF-sourced self-adapting automatic gearbox, which still maintains lightning-quick shifts, while being easier to handle when driven calmly. It features four function modes.
Maserati says that the GranTurismo can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 183 mph. There's impressive braking to match, provided by big Brembo hardware, as well as sticky Pirelli P Zero Rosso rubber to supply plenty of grip to take advantage of the near-perfect weight distribution.
An optional electronically controlled suspension system Maserati calls Skyhook aims to strike the balance between comfort and performance in the GranTurismo, adjusting firmness depending on driving style and road conditions. Engaging a "Sport" mode for the suspension also allows for more aggressive shift logic for the transmission.
Standard features include navigation, corner-illuminating xenon headlamps, Bose surround-sound system, a 30-gigabyte music server, Bluetooth and iPod inter-connectivity. Anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are also standard.
The GranTurismo's interior allows for countless combinations of interior and exterior color and trims. Three interior exotic wood finishes are available, and Maserati offers a broad spectrum of exterior color options.
Maserati's GranTurismo sees a few changes for 2011, including a new wood steering wheel, unique bodywork for S models, updated darker headlight surrounds and matte exterior paint choices. Several minor interior trim changes have been made as well.
The GranTurismo isn't inexpensive, with base prices starting at $118,900 for the coupe and $122,500 for the S trim. But that kind of money gets a true supercar, outstanding Piniafarina styling, impressive power and performance as well as unmatched luxury touring comfort. Ferrari's California starts at almost $200,000 while
