True to Maserati’s commitment to introduce a new model at each international car show, the GranTurismo S Automatic premières at the Geneva Auto Show. The new Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic features a 4.7 V8 engine which develops 440 hp (323kW) at 7000 rpm. The maximum torque is 490Nm at 4750 rpm.

The principal content is the combination of the automatic transmission with the most powerful wet sump Maserati V8 on the GranTurismo – until now offered as 4.2 l with automatic transmission and 4.7 l with an electro-actuated gearbox. Thanks to the combination of the 440 hp (323kW) produced by the powerful 4.7 l V8 engine and the smoothness of the ZF 6-speed automatic gearbox, the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic stresses the original granturismo concept while at the same time offering peak performance.

The Skyhook suspension system featuring continuously adjustable dampers provides great driving comfort. Passive safety is further enhanced thanks to the introduction on the GranTurismo range of a new generation of passenger air-bag with Low Risk Deployment functionality.

Consistently with the unmistakable design of all Maseratis, the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic features some discreet yet marked stylistic changes which make it immediately recognisable: the new under-door mini-skirts featuring a prominent shape, which enhances the dynamism of its profile and the new 20” wheel rims (standard) with the brand new “Trident” design featuring spokes that distinctly reflect the Trident shape to create a mix of strength and elegance.

A further enriched equipment increases the on board pleasure for the driver and the passengers, thanks to the Bluetooth® Technology, offered as standard, and the iPod® interface, available upon request, which complete the Maserati Multi Media System.
