The GranTurismo sharpens its Trident.
At the 82nd Geneva Motor Show, Maserati will be unveiling the new 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport. The Italian automaker has redesigned the entire car and will be showing their new 4.7-liter V-8 engine that will likely power other Maserati models.
The 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport is more of an evolution of the previous generation rather than a completely new design. One of the most prominent differences is with the new front bumper. In the new GranTurismo Sport, it resembles the bumper on the GranTurismo MC Stradale that was used prior to the redesign. The new bumper features larger air intakes that curve from the headlights towards the bottom of the grille to improve cooling for the engine and brakes. In between both of the intakes sits a small splitter that helps to generate downforce. Staring straight ahead are two sharp headlights that utilize DRL LED technology to provide bright, efficient light.
At the rear of the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport the Italian automaker has installed new, darker taillights with LEDs. Much of the rear remains visually the same save for a few subtle changes to the lower valence. A new range of wheels will also be available for the new GranTurismo Sport model.
One of the other major changes in the new 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport lies between the front fenders. Maserati will use a new 4.7-liter V-8 that produces 470 horsepower. The new engine offers a 26 horsepower improvement over the previous generation’s performance oriented MC Stradale model.
In the 2013 GranTurismo Sport Maserati has replaced many of the aging designs with fresh, modern equipment. Facing the driver will be a new steering wheel while both the front and rear seats benefit from a full redesign.
