Maserati GranTurismo S Revealed  

0 评论

Last year Maserati used the Geneva Auto Show to debut their GranTurismo, this year the company has decided to spice things up with the introduction of the GranTurismo S. Powered by a 4.7L V8 engine that produces 440 horsepower, the S uses an electro-actuated gearbox with MC-Shift technology to create an unforgettable driving experience. The gearbox allows the GT S to shift in a one tenth of a second and enables the car to go from 0 to 100km/h in 4.9 seconds.

The GranTurismo S also features a high performance braking system which was developed in cooperation with Brembo and first used on the Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S. Using dual cast technology, the front brakes combine cast iron and aluminum to ensure maximum braking from the system’s six piston brake calipers.

Exterior differences are subtle and include new oval dual exhaust, redesigned side skirts, and a horizontal red bar on the grille’s trident logo. The interior is upholstered in Poltrona Frau leather and Alcantara, while new front and rear seats feature horizontal piping.

Press Release


A year after the unveiling of the GranTurismo, Maserati will be back at the Geneva International Motorshow with yet another world premiere, the GranTurismo S. The ultimate expression of the Trident coupé’s sportiness shifts the emphasis onto performance and driving enjoyment.

Two main novelties are at the heart of the new Maserati: the 440 hp V8 4.7 engine and the electro-actuated gearbox with fast MC-Shift arranged in the transaxle layout typical of high-performance sports cars that represents the technological DNA of all Maseratis.

The GranTurismo S makes use of the high-performance brake system developed in collaboration with Brembo and introduced for the first time in the automotive field on the Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S. The system features front brake discs made with dual-cast technology – a dual casting of cast iron and aluminium, paired with aluminium mono-bloc 6-piston brake callipers, ensuring optimised braking performance.

On the exterior the Maserati GranTurismo S is characterised by a number of aesthetic modifications that, although discrete, are highly effective and make the car body appear sportier without abandoning the sleekness of the lines masterfully designed by Pininfarina.

The interior upholstered in Poltrona Frau leather and Alcantara reflects the sporty flair of the Maserati GranTurismo S; the figure-hugging front and rear seats are distinguished by their new dynamic design with horizontal piping on the seats and seatbacks.
