The all-new 2008 Maserati GranTurismo mixes elegance and power in a four passenger grand touring coupe with Italian flair and passion.
The Italian love of automotive beauty and performance are truly blended in the GranTurismo, as 19-inch alloy wheels and 13-inch cross-drilled disc brakes carry a sensuously styled body by Pininfarina that is unmistakably Maserati. This passion is carried into the cabin where glove soft Poltrona Frau leather abounds and one is enveloped in luxury and soothed by the sounds of an 11 speaker Bose system.
The GranTurismo is propelled by a 4.2 liter V8 that generates a robust 405 horsepower and 339 pound feet of torque. All of this power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed electro-actuuated automatic transmission, operated via steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
Base MSRP for the 2008 Maserati GranTurismo is $110,000. Options such as 20-inch wheels, colored brake calipers and special leather interiors can push the price upwards of $120,000. For some, this is a small price to pay for the sheer joy of driving a rolling art form that one can personalize in, believe it or not, over four million ways.
With sumptuous accommodations, elegant styling and over 400 horsepower, the 2008 Maserati GranTurismo marks a new era for Maserati's grand touring car.
