Italian sportscar marque Maserati has unveiled the new GranTurismo.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What are the three variants of the new Maserati GranTurismo?

    The new Maserati GranTurismo's three variants are the Modena, Trofeo, and Folgore.
  • On top of the three variants, what special-edition model will Maserati offer when it launches the new GranTurismo?

    Per Maserati, a special PrimaSerie 75th Anniversary Launch Edition with exclusive content will also be offered during the new GranTurismo’s launch.
  • According to the Trident brand, the presentation of the new offering marks “a new chapter in a story that began 75 years ago with the Maserati A6 1500.”

    Truly enough, the design cues of the new GranTurismo maintain the classic proportions of the brand’s cars. The characteristic element can be seen on the automobile’s long bonnet as well as on the central body intersected by its four fenders. Furthermore, the roof line drops dynamically to emphasize the curve of the pillar that features the iconic Trident logo.

    Complementing the timeless design is an innovative technical concept. The body of the new GranTurismo is built using lightweight materials namely aluminum and magnesium, together with high-performance steel. Such a multi-material approach required new manufacturing processes to be created, resulting in the best-in-class weight levels.

    The Maserati GranTurismo’s modern cabin is equipped with innovative systems, including the Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) Multimedia system and an optionally available Heads-up Display. It is also equipped with advanced level five cyber-security and flash-over-the-air features.

    In addition, the new GranTurismo is fitted with the Vehicle Domain Control Module (VDCM) master controller — a 100-percent Maserati project consisting of software that provides 360-degree control of all the most important car systems for the best driving experience in all conditions.

    Power comes from the revolutionary V6 Nettuno engine, available in two versions: the Modena (first picture below), with the 490 horsepower (hp) 3.0-liter V6 Nettuno Twin Turbo; and the high-performance Trofeo version (second picture below) which is based on the same engine, upgraded to a maximum power of 550 horses.

    Alternatively, the GranTurismo Folgore adopts a 100-percent electric battery-based powertrain. The Folgore system is based on an 800-volt (v) technology and has been developed with cutting-edge technical solutions derived from Formula E. It offers superb performance, made possible by the three powerful 300 kilowatts (kW) permanent magnet motors.

    The battery of the Folgore grade has a nominal capacity of 92.5 kilowatt-hours (kWh) and a discharge capacity of 560kW to continuously transmit around 760hp to the wheels. The specific set-up and innovative layout of the battery result in the containment of vehicle height to 1,353 millimeters (mm), without compromising its sporty nature. The shape of the battery pack, known as the “T-bone,” forms part of Maserati’s “zero compromise” approach and avoids placing the battery modules under the seats, mainly moving them around the central tunnel and therefore considerably lowering the car’s hip point (H-point).

    On top of the three Maserati GranTurismo variants (Modena, Trofeo, and Folgore), a special PrimaSerie 75th Anniversary Launch Edition with exclusive content will also be offered.

    The exact launch date as well as the pricing of the new GranTurismo has yet to be announced. 

    Developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab and produced at the Mirafiori manufacturing hub in Turin, the GranTurismo is 100-percent made in Italy and epitomizes “Italian luxury performance,” a concept typical of all Maserati models.
