Maserati unveils 2012 GranTurismo Sport

Good news - a new range-topping Masser for power enthusiasts with more than one friend

Say ciao to Maserati's new GranTurismo Sport; a meatier, more hardcore replacement for the outgoing GranTurismo S.

The buxom GT slots in atop the company's range and gets the tweaked 454bhp 4.7-litre V8 that'll be fitted to the 2012 track-biased GranTurismo MC Stradale. Which is good news for power enthusiasts with more than one friend - unlike the MC, the GranTurismo Sport gets rear seats.

According to the Italians, it's also undergone "a significant restyling" which, to our eyes, is not hugely significant. There's a new bumper and lights, as well as slightly more gurn to the mouth, inherited from the MC Stradale - this increases airflow to the engine and brakes. It's also sprouted a set of daytime running LED lamps and the taillights now have an "elegant, more aggressive, darker tone." Or, as we prefer, "they have been tinted a bit".

It'll be unveiled at the 2012 Geneva motor show in March and production's scheduled to start in September 2012 (at which point the old GranTurismo S will come to an end).

What part of your anatomy would you sell to own one, TopGear.communists?
