The GranTurismo is a four-seat grand touring coupe with V-8 power. A high-performance S version is available, and for 2010, so is a convertible version. The GranTurismo competes with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Jaguar XKR and Mercedes-Benz CL550.

New for 2010
For 2010, Maserati added a convertible version that uses the drivetrain from the GranTurismo S.
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.
Maserati cloaks the interior in high-quality leather and wood, and puts chrome accents on the dashboard. There's seating for four people; Maserati says two adults fit comfortably in the backseat.
Under the Hood
Maserati says the GranTurismo coupe can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in about 5 seconds and reach a top speed of 177 mph.
If the regular GranTurismo isn't exotic or fast enough for you, the GranTurismo S serves as a high-performance version featuring more power, bigger brakes and exterior modifications to increase performance.
Known in most other markets as the Maserati GranCabrio, the new GranTurismo Convertible uses the 433-hp V-8 from the GranTurismo S, but because of the additional weight of a convertible structure, its zero-to-60 mph acceleration drops slightly to 5.3 seconds. Its top speed is 176 mph. Other details include:
