All-New Maserati GranTurismo Previewed On The Road Before Full Reveal
A new Maserati GranTurismo as we live and breathe.
Maserati has been dragging their feet in terms of product updates. They’re not exactly the largest luxury performance car brand, so the expectation is for longer lifecycles. However, the last GranTurismo was on sale from 2007 until 2019 and it still hasn’t seen a successor! Now though, Maserati are ready to show what they’ve been working on, but all they’ll offer up is a little taste.
Official photographs of the next generation Maserati GranTurismo on the roads have been shared by the company in both its Modena and Trofeo versions. These are powered by the new 3.0L twin-turbo V6 Nettuno engine, which also powers the recently unveiled Cielo. To be honest, it shares many styling cues with the Cielo, particularly with regards to the daytime running light signature, and the outlines of its front inlets.
Only two photos of the new Maserati GranTurismo were shared, with the rear end, interior and specifications still hidden. It sported the Maserati trident in the colours of the Italian flag as its livery.
Here’s the press release with more.
The new Maserati GranTurismo has taken to the road ahead of its official reveal, in the Modena and Trofeo versions fitted with the V6 Nettuno engine.
GranTurismo is the Brand’s true icon and its energy is unstoppable: the high-performance coupé is already travelling many miles, with a selected number of employees from the Maserati Family in the driving seat.
The livery has only one main message: the return of a Maserati icon created 75 years ago. It all began with the A6 1500, a model with a revolutionary spirit, the forerunner of a class of car that had never been seen before. It would go on to influence the automotive landscape all over the world, and successive generations of Maserati road cars.
Granturismo is a way of life 100% Made in Italy: a type of high-performance car, suitable for long distances and comfortable journeys. The idea came about after WWII, during the Italian economic boom, when we showed the world our outstanding products, our strength, optimism and carefree attitude, the will to work but also to enjoy ourselves.
At that historic moment, Maserati solved an equation that appeared to be impossible: a new concept of luxury mobility, capable of bringing together performance and comfort. Today, the energy of the new Maserati GranTurismo generation is now ready to take the Brand ahead into the future, emboldened by its unique style and driven by an innate propensity for innovation.
