Maserati GranTurismo spawns three new modifications
The next generation of the Maserati GranTurismo showed up on teaser pics more than two years ago, but the premiere has only taken place now. Some things – like the interior – remain to be revealed, but at least we now know what options there will be.
The gas-powered GranTurismo duo ships with a 3.0-liter Nettuno V6 under the hood. In the Modena version, the twin-turbo mill makes 496 PS (489 hp / 365 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. Opting for a higher spec called Trofeo raises the output to 558 PS (550 hp / 410 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. The latter version needs 3.5 seconds to sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) and doesn’t hit its speed limit until 320 km/h (199 mph).
The all-electric Maserati GranTurismo Folgore utilizes a three-motor powertrain good for 762 PS (752 hp / 560 kW) and 1,350 Nm (996 lb-ft) of torque. It zaps from standstill to highway speed in 2.7 seconds and reaches the same top speed as its ICE counterpart.
All three variants sport minor exterior distinctions to tell them apart. For example, the Folgore EV can be recognized by its fake radiator grille, particularly elaborate turbine-like wheels and a pronounced front bumper.
