In 1947, Maserati introduced its first road car, the GranTurismo. Sixty years later, at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show, the latest GranTurismo was unveiled. While the first GranTurismo was based on the racing chassis of the Maserati A6 (total production only 58 units), the latest iteration is based on Maserati's road-based flagship Quattroporte sedan. Styled by Pininfarina's Jason Castriota, with more than a few hints of the Ferrari 599 GTB in the sheetmetal, the new 4-passenger coupÃ© is built on a shortened Quattroporte platform. Available in standard and high-performance S models, both versions offer powerful Ferrari-sourced 8-cylinder powerplants.
The 2008 Maserati GranTurismo and GranTurismo S share the same platform and chassis. The GranTurismo S model features a more powerful engine, a special race-modified transmission, and a high-performance brake and wheel package.
