The Sport Coupe also comes with a retuned and more powerful version of the 4.7L V8 that powers other GranTurismo coupes.
Strong, sweet-sounding Ferrari-derived V8; styling and details; ride comfort; tight-fitting canvas top (GranTurismo Convertible); customization potential
The GranTurismo is Maserati's high-performance grand-touring sport coupe, featuring strong Ferrari designed V8 engines and 2+2 seating. Compared to other grand-touring coupes like the Jaguar XK, BMW M6 or even the Audi R8, the GranTurismo has Italian design on its side, with an unmistakable expressiveness and flair--and an unmistakable engine sound--that simply isn't found in the more engineering-focused German grand-tourers. The GranTurismo models also have more opportunity for personalization.
