The re-styled Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio made their first public appearance at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed, delighting car lovers at the festival. The iconic four-seater coupé, the GranTurismo, made its European premiere two days after it was revealed at the New York Stock Exchange. The GranCabrio, meanwhile, made it's world debut at Goodwood.
The MY18 GranTurismo is the latest Maserati which has been designed by iconic styling house Pininfarina, and ever since it was first launched in 2007 it has evolved into one of the most iconic GT cars ever to grace the roads.
The restyled and further refined GranTurismo is now available in two trim levels: Sport and MC. Both come with a naturally aspirated and incredible sounding 4.7 V8 engine producing 460p, an engine that was hand-crafted by Ferrari in Maranello. They come equipped with a six-speed ZF automatic transmission, attached directly to that V8 powerhouse.
The car’s new “sharknose” hexagonal grille is inspired by the Alfieri Concept and adds a three-dimensional effect to the frontal view.
The new MY18 GranCabrio benefits from similar styling cues to the GranTurismo, with the new "sharknose" grille.
Together with the new, lower air ducts, the grille helps improve the airflow distribution and reduces aerodynamic drag from 0.33 to 0.32 for the GranTurismo and from 0.35 to 0.33 for the GranCabrio.
bumper has also been redesigned with an emphasis on the natural elegance
of the iconic GT coupé and cabriolet, featuring a neater design with
twofold layout for the Sport and MC versions.
The interior of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio offers unparalleled comfort for four adults thanks to the individual Poltrona Frau® leather seats with integrated headrests. For 2018, the sumptuous interior features a new, high resolution 8.4” capacitive touch screen and refined ergonomics.
The state-of-the art infotainment system is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions. The lower console is redesigned to accommodate a user-friendly, double rotary dial made of forged aluminium and the repositioned button cluster for the car’s driving modes.
The new Maserati double dial clock at the centre of the dashboard and the Harman Kardon Premium Sound system are standard on both Sport and MC versions.
