When Italians get out to make cars, more often than not you will fall in love with their thoughtful, sometimes experimental and sometimes outrageous ideas. Let’s see where the Maserati GranTurismo falls.
Competition for sporty, speedy supercars from Italy is not in short supply at all. From the onset, the GranTurismo was never meant to be in a class of its own or introduce record-breaking capabilities.
However, with a relatively smaller 4.2-liter V8 engine (which is no longer available) it still managed 0–60mph in just 4.8 seconds. In today’s standards, this would look like child play since we’ve seen some very unique performances on this end.
Weighing more than 1900kgs and a length of 4.9 meters, this is agreeably a rather huge and heavy car, which is able to cruise at surprisingly high speeds with much ease. In fact, you would be more comfortable accelerating faster than on slower speeds.
You can have your Maserati GranTurismo in either the coupe or the convertible. For the former, you will fort out about $134, 300 while the convertible starts at $150,380.
We’ve come to fall in love with the experimental nature of the auto car industry primarily because it makes it gives a lot of hope that the future is highly undiscovered and that there is always something to catch up with.
