New for 2009
The high-performance S Automatic trim features a new six-speed automatic transmission that's claimed to make the GranTurismo a more comfortable daily driver than it was with the previous automatic.

Maserati teamed with Italian design company Pininfarina to style the GranTurismo. The car features a wide oval grille, a long nose and a short rear. It sits low to the ground and has a very sleek profile overall.
