  • Rear parking sensors standard; front sensors optional
  • Numerous interior material options, including Alcantara simulated-suede headliner and wood trim

Safety

GranTurismo S
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. Other details include:

  • 433-hp, 4.7-liter V-8 with 361 pounds-feet of torque
  • Six-speed automatic transmission differs from base GranTurismo's in a way meant to provide better daily drivability
  • Side and rear-lip spoilers add balance through aerodynamics
  • 20-inch wheels feature seven-spoke design
  • Blacked-out grille
  • Interior upholstered in leather and Alcantara Back to top

GranTurismo Convertible
Known in most other markets as the Maserati GranCabrio, the 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:

  • Power-folding soft-top works in 24 seconds
  • Trunk volume uncompromised whether the top is up or down
  • Pop-up rollover bars Back to top
