GranTurismo Maserati

The sleek, 2008 Maserati GranTurismo is a rare gem among sports cars. One of the most highly anticipated introductions to the U.S. market in years, the GranTurismo is styled by Pininfarina with luxury appointments.

The GranTurismo of 1947 began Maserati’s long, unbroken reputation for style and sexiness. Since that original GranTurismo, Maseratis have always looked fast and they have always had sumptuous interiors combining breakthrough design with unexpected practicality.

So when the covers came off the new GranTurismo in Geneva in early 2007, it was the apex of a detailed, passionate design adventure that kept true to its heritage. That heritage has its roots in the Maserati A6GCS Berlinetta Pininfarina, which was so successful that its affectionate name, the GranTurismo, became the universal name for all fast, sexy, two-door coupés.

The leather in every Maserati is carefully crafted by Poltrona Frau after long months of development, while fellow Italian Salvatore Ferragamo’s tailored leather luggage set fits perfectly, both inside the boot of every Maserati GranTurismo and in the foyer of the world’s best hotels.

Distinctive Maserati hallmarks include the oval version of the Maserati logo known as the Maserati “Saetta”, which has been positioned on the C-pillar since the Quattroporte’s launch in 2004

Its headlights keep an historical Maserati coupé signature. View the GranTurismo in profile, and the lights sweep up into the front guard panel – just as they have done since the 1940s.
