The brand-new 2008 Maserati GranTurismo is a very exclusive grand touring coupe that promises to be comfortable and luxurious while also providing impressive performance.
It is powered by a Ferrari-derived, 405-horsepower, 4.2L aluminum V8, along with a new six-speed automatic transmission--with optional paddle shifters. Maserati says that the GranTurismo can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds en route to a top speed of 177 mph. There's braking to match, provided by big Brembo hardware, and sticky Pirelli Pzero Rosso rubber to supply plenty of grip to take advantage of the near-perfect weight distribution. Anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are standard.
An electronically controlled suspension system, called 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 a more aggressive shift logic for the transmission.
The GranTurismo's interior is a marked step above that of the GranSport it replaces, mainly because of all the opportunities for customization, and countless possibilities between interior and exterior colors, materials, and trims.
Standard features include a navigation system, corner-illuminating xenon headlamps, and a Bose surround-sound system with a 30-gigabyte music server.
Exclusivity; flashy appearance; highly customizable interior.
Maserati's GranTurismo is a new, larger coupe model for 2008, replacing the GranSport coupe and spyder models of 2006, with new styling inside and out. Most notable in the GranTurismo, in addition to the new look, is the availability of a conventional automatic transmission for the first time.
As it comes in a vast number of combinations for exterior color, interior color, trim, and other accessories, the new GranTurismo promises more exclusivity than rivals like the BMW 650i (or even M6) and the Jaguar XKR. It also has the advantage of a full back seat.
