Maserati GranTurismo news - Geneva show: Maserati GranTurismo - 2007

When
you’ve got a car as good-looking as the Maserati GranTurismo, does it really
need company - even company like that?

Though
it hasn’t been explicitly billed as such, the GranTurismo is the replacement
for the current Maserati Coupe. It’s a forward-looking design sharing much with
the Quattroporte… check out those three holes behind the front arches for
evidence of the heritage.

Indeed,
the GranTurismo is based on the same platform as the Quattroporte, though the
wheelbase is a fraction shorter than Maserati’s luxury four-door.

It
gets the same Ferrari-sourced 4.2-litre V8 as the current Coupe, fettled to
produce 405bhp - a jump of 15bhp. All that power is channelled through an auto
‘box, which should be a huge improvement over the Coupe’s rubbery paddle-shift.

With
Maserati promising near-even weight distribution, we’re hoping the GranTurismo
will be as good to drive as it is to look at.
