Model Highlights

The GranTurismo Coupe and Convertible include a 433-horsepower, 4.7L hand-built V8 engine, combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The new GranTurismo MC and Sport Convertible models get more power, from a special version of the brand's 4.7L V8 engine, making 444 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. The MC can get to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 185 mph.

All U.S. versions of the GranTurismo come with a 6-speed automatic transmission with both manual and sport modes, with the latter opening up baffling in the exhaust system for a louder, more baritone note during acceleration. Sport mode also reduces shift times by about 50 percent.

Most GranTurismo models get an adjustable Skyhook air suspension that combines reasonably good ride comfort with the firmness and response of a performance car. Instead of the Skyhook adjustable air suspension, the MC gets a conventional suspension that in effect has firmer springs, as well as a thicker front anti-roll bar. Inside, the MC also gets larger shift paddles alongside the steering wheel

The MC also gets special front and rear fascias and aero bodywork (reducing downforce at high speed), wider fenders, and a unique hood. Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, a sport exhaust, 20-inch wheels with custom-developed Pirelli tires.

The GranTurismo Convertible (GranCabrio) has nearly the same interior arrangement as the GranTurismo Coupe, but with a canvas soft top that can be opened automatically in just 24 seconds. Convertible models also have the same amount of trunk space whether the top is up or down--which differs from models with folding-hardtop arrangements.

All GranTurismo models come with automatic climate control, cruise control, keyless entry, real wood trim, heated seats and mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, headlight washers, power seats (memory for the driver) and a park-assist system, plus Bluetooth hands-free capability, voice recognition and steering-wheel audio controls in a Bose 11-speaker SurroundStage premium audio system.

Shoppers can choose from a long list of color combinations for the GranTurismo; here are six colors for the roof alone, with three interior choices and ten different colors available for the Poltrana Frau leather seats. Carpet and contrasting stitching are offered in six different colors and a perfectly coordinated luggage set is also available.


Model News

The GranTurismo MC Coupe, a lighter, faster, and more powerful model, has been added to the Maserati GranTurismo lineup for 2012. Also new to the lineup is the GranTurismo Sport Convertible (GranCabrio Sport), which gets the same upgraded 444-hp V8 as the MC Coupe. Both models join the standard GranTurismo S Automatic Coupe and GranTurismo Convertible (GranCabrio).

New to the entire GranTurismo range for 2012 is a Rosso Trionfale exterior color, plus a number of new interior finishes, leathers, and trim options and Red brake calipers to match the new exterior hue.


Value Writeup

The GranTurismo is Maserati's high-performance grand-touring sport coupe, featuring strong V8 engines and 2+2 seating. Maserati says that the new GranTurismo MC Stradale model is the fastest, lightest, and most powerful car in the brand's lineup.

Compared to other grand-touring coupes like the Jaguar XK, BMW M6 or even the Audi R8, the GranTurismo has Italian design on its side, with an unmistakable expressiveness and flair--and an unmistakable engine sound--that simply isn't found in the more engineering-focused German grand-tourers. The GranTurismo models also have more opportunity for customization.

Summary
Maserati is recalling certain model year 2012 Quattroporte, Granturismo, Granturismo Convertible, and Granturismo MC vehicles. The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may malfunction due to a software error, preventing the driver from being notified of a low tire pressure situation.

Consequence
If the driver continues to operate the vehicle with a tire that has low air pressure, the tire may fail, increasing the risk of a crash.

Maserati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the TPMS control unit free of charge. The campaign is expected to begin in early November 2012. Owners may contact Maserati at 1-201-816-2600.

Maserati's recall campaign number is 202. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
