Maserati GranTurismo Sport

Sliding in-between the base GranTurismo and sportier GranTurismo MC, the new Maserati GranTurismo Sport adds just another flavor to the lineup. It adopts many of the MC’s track-oriented improvements while retaining its grand-touring feel. The MC and Sport both share an aggressive front grill with a distinguished chin spoiler, but the MC takes things further with cooling ducts just past the front wheels that melt into the side skirts, a pair of heat-dissipating slots on the front hood, a redesigned rear bumper, and an exposed-carbon-fiber spoiler. In addition to the front fascia, the two share an engine, a revised version of the 4.7-liter V-8 that produces 10 more horsepower, for a total of 453. The engine is connected to an automatic transmission that has fully replaced the automated manual in the United States. The adapĀ­tive Skyhook transmission in the Sport is a little more stiffly sprung, but it is accompanied with seats that are a little softer. Together, they reach a middle ground, splitting the difference between the grand-touring base car and track-eyeing MC.Maserati GranTurismo Sport photoMaserati GranTurismo Sport photo1Maserati GranTurismo Sport photo2Maserati GranTurismo Sport interior
