Maserati GranTurismo Sport

Posted on 17 August, 2012

Maserati GranTurismo Sport is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 engine that produces 460HP ( 343 kW). 0-100kph (0-62mph) in under 5 seconds.

Additionally, the GranTurismo Sport receives a new front fascia featuring restyled front bumper and headlights with DRL Led technology. The rear also gets an update with new taillights and a darker tone whilst the interior gets a new steering wheel and aggressive upgrade.

The GranTurismo Sport is available with two different types of transmission: a ZF 6-speed automatic and a 6-speed electro actuated gearbox, with dry twin-plate clutch (not available in North America). The first enhances driving comfort without compromising on performance, while the second offers a more involving driving experience.

Behind the impressive 20″ Astro Design alloy wheels lies the equally impressive braking system of the new GranTurismo Sport, which employs Brembo dual-cast technology coupled with 6-piston brake calipers at the front and 4-piston brake calipers at the rear. The disc, in a slotted and perforated version, is made of two different materials, cast iron and aluminium, reducing weight by between 15% and 20% and delivering enhanced comfort, reduced corrosion and wear and superior component performance.
