Ahead of its official reveal, the new Maserati GranTurismo has taken to the roads of Italy, with the Modena and Trofeo versions, fitted with the V6 Nettuno engine, caught in the act, as it were.
The high-performance coupé is already travelling multiple kilometres in preparation for its launch, with a selected number of employees from the Maserati family in the driving seat. The new model carries a special livery to mark the occasion too.
Its significance lies in the fact it harks to the return of a Maserati icon created 75 years ago. It all began with the A6 1500, a model with a revolutionary spirit, the forerunner of a class of car that had never been seen before.
It would go on to influence the automotive landscape all over the world, and successive generations of Maserati road cars.
GranTurismo is a way of life that’s 100 per cent ‘Made in Italy’ – the type of high-performance car that’s suitable for long distances and comfortable journeys.
The idea came about after WWII, during the Italian economic boom, when the country showed the world its outstanding products, strength, optimism and carefree attitude. At that historic moment, Maserati solved an equation that appeared to be impossible.
A new concept of luxury mobility, capable of bringing together performance and comfort was born. Today, the energy of the new Maserati GranTurismo generation is now ready to take Maserati forward, alongside cars like the Grecale and MC20.
The new model will join the existing line-up, which also includes the Ghibli, Levante and Quattroporte. Further details on the new GranTurismo are not yet known. Full specifications and local availability and pricing will be revealed closer to its launch.
