The Italian luxury carmaker, Maserati has launched a much-awaited renew version of GranTurismo at a price of Rs 2.25 crore in India last Friday. The supercar comes with a gorgeous look.
Maserati firstly unveiled the GranTurismo at the Goodwood Fest last year. Several days ago, the new edition made its official launch in the Indian auto market with two variants: the Sports and MC at the starting price of Rs 2.25 crore (ex-showroom, India). The new GranTurismo shares many features in common with the outgoing model but it is still one of the most-awaited supercars of Maserati.
The luxury supercar, GranTurismo comes in the literal meaning. This model is powered by the conventionally aspirated 4.7-litre V8 engine manufactured by Ferrari, producing 460 bhp at 7000rpm and maximum 520 Nm of torque at 4750 rpm. The V8 powerhouse is mated to a 6-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Concerning the design, the frontal view extremely appeals to the automotive fraternity with a three-dimensional effect along with the new “shark-nose” hexagonal grille which is influenced by the Alfieri concept. The grille could be of help for the enhancement of the airflow and temperature distribution and reduction of the aerodynamic drag from 0.33 to 0.32.

Bojan Jankulovski, Maserati India's head of operations speaking ahead of launch in Mumbai:
“For over 70 years, our quest has been to develop and refine a unique, pure expression of the GranTurismo concept. It’s a luxurious, handcrafted grand-tourer fitted with a sophisticated race car engine, one of the last naturally aspirated engines. The restyled GranTurismo is a car for those who defy convention, those who dare to be different.”
