Finished in stunning Blue over Tan interior. Powered by its 4.2L / 405-hp V-8 engine with a ZF 6-speed Automatic Transmission first introduced in the Quattroporte that adapts to driving style and driving conditions and allows the driver to choose from four different operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Low Grip/Auto Ice, and Manual. One owner ultra low mile car, only 4K miles. Looks and drives amazing.
The Maserati Gran Turismo is powered by an eight cylinder 4,244 cc V90 engine, one that is part of the companys new range of power units. The engine develops 405 bhp at 7,100 rpm, equivalent to 96.4 bhp/litre. Compact and light, the cylinder heads are made of aluminium alloy and silicon. The 32 valves are actioned by two overhead camshafts per bank while the overhead camshafts on the aspirated side are controlled by a low pressure, continual phase variator.The lubrication system features a wet sump, which means a reduction in noise, making the cabin an even quieter place to be. The engine produces a reassuring burble that never interferes with the driving experience.
The exhaust connected to the V8 meets the most stringent anti-pollution regulations but does not compromise the cars performance. On a technical level, metal has replaced ceramic as the material of choice for the catalysers, the same as those found on competition cars.
The acceleration provided by the Maserati V8 is immediate, and, thanks to the electronic drive by wire throttle control, the car responds to even the slightest touch on the pedal.
The Maserati Gran Turismos new hydraulic gearbox brings out the best in the engine. The self-adapting automatic gearbox is especially useful at the low-mid range revs while top end power doesnt suffer. Gear changes can be made right up to 7200 rpm, a rate that no other automatic transmission in the world can match.
There are four function modes: Auto Normal is for comfortable cruising, Auto Sport is for those who like a sportier, more involving drive, Auto ICE is for low grip conditions and then there is Manual mode. In manual, it is the driver who chooses when to change gear via the steering wheel paddles.
The Maserati Gran Turismo reacts brilliantly thanks to its perfect weight distribution: 49% of the cars weight sits over the front end and 51% on the rear. This set up was achieved by shifting the engine behind the front axle and it gives the driver an unparalleled sense of security in any conditions.
The load-bearing chassis means greater rigidity and its high-resistance, box-steel structure allows the suspension to track every dip in the terrain. This enhances the cars dynamic handling and ensures a more comfortable drive.
