A true GranTurismo needs a grand-scale engine – with continentcrossing capabilities and a ruthless streak, as and when you need it. Which is where the Ferrari-built 4.7-litre V8 comes in. This compact and lightweight powerplant is fitted to all G
GranTurismo models, develops 460HP, 520Nm of torque and revs to an impressive 7,500rpm. It also makes extensive use of motor sport-derived technology for race-grade resistance to high dynamic loads while maintaining exceptional refinement. The engine can power the GranTurismo Sport and MC from zero to 62mph in 4.8 seconds and 4.7 seconds on to a maximum speed of 186mph (299km/h) and 187mph (301 km/h). All this power finds its way to the road via a ZF six-speed MC Auto Shift gearbox. This operates in Auto-Normal, Auto-Sport, Manual-Normal, Manual-Sport and ICE modes. These offer a wide range of driving styles. Not only does this smooth out the transition, the pops and burbles are also a joy to the ears of any motor sport aficionado.
Driving, or being driven in, a Maserati is a uniquely rousing experience. So it’s only fitting that the vehicle has an audio system always perfectly in tune with the mood – whether you’re driving hard or soaking up the miles on the trip of a lifetime. This comes in the shape of new premium audio systems from worldclass audio innovator Harman Kardon – tailor-made for the interiors of the GranTurismo. The system features AuraVox sound tuning and class-leading Harman Kardon sound processing technologies. These are exceptionally advanced packages that deliver distortion-free and detail-rich listening enjoyment in all four seats. As for the styling, advanced technology allows the powerful speakers to be exceptionally compact so they integrate seamlessly with each interior. There is also, of course, the inimitably elegant yet hi-tech look of the Harman Kardon brand to enjoy.
An all-new Infotainment system for all GranTurismo models includes a high-resolution 8.4’’ Maserati Touch Control Plus unit (MTC+) that allows simple and intuitive control of features such as audio, navigation and comfort functions. There is also a user-friendly rotary controller in the central console and the system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions. MTC+ can be operated in three ways: via the touch-screen, the rotary controller or Siri voice command. The system’s menus have options to configure the car’s main settings and menus are readily accessible through the icons displayed at the bottom of the touch-screen. Other highlights include a handy mobile phone storage compartment containing an SD card reader, a USB socket and an aux-in port. This allows the user to play music, watch films or even view images. Bluetooth connectivity is standard.
Near-perfect front-to-rear weight distribution – with a marginal rearward bias – has always been a Maserati hallmark. This is achieved with the GranTurismo models, in customary style, by locating the V8 just behind the front axle. Out on the open road – or on the race track – this delivers a world of benefits. They include naturally balanced handling, optimum grip, great steering feedback and precise directional stability. A double wishbone suspension set-up, hydraulic steering – rather than a less engaging electro-mechanical system – Brembo brakes and a sophisticated mechanical limited slip differential also contribute in these vital areas. The GranTurismo Sport offers Sport Skyhook damping, which constantly adapts its settings to suit the road conditions (optional for GranTurismo MC). Normal is a day-to-day configuration that still, nonetheless, maintains the essential dynamic involvement you would expect of a Maserati. Sport, meanwhile, provides a far more direct and firmly set up driving experience.
Easy Entry System
As for accessing the rear seats, the Easy Entry system makes life particularly easy. Both front seats slide forward and back electrically, giving plenty of room whether passengers are getting into or out of the car. Two individually profiled rear seats, along with class-leading head and legroom, a central pull-down armrest, two cupholders, courtesy lights and a pair of climate control vents also ensure excellent comfort.
Maserati ensure life is extremely comfortable and convenient for all on board, with standard features such as a folding front armrest with an illuminated storage compartment, cruise control, automatic headlight activation, electric opening assist for the boot lid and doors, dual zone automatic climate control with two rear outlets, and a good deal more.
