The New Generation Of Maserati GranTurismo Revealed

Author: |

Maserati has unveiled the brand-new GranTurismo. Three versions of the new GranTurismo are offered: the totally electric Folgore, which is by far the most potent, and the V6-powered Modena, and Trofeo. A new lightweight design constructed of steel, aluminum, and magnesium serves as the foundation for the Maserati GranTurismo.

The new GT, the first EV under the marque, debuts with three electric motors and a battery pack. The exterior of the GranTurismo combines sensual proportions, contemporary stylistic cues, and evolutionary style with a sumptuous four-seater interior.

Maserati has already shown us the GranTurismo's design in both ICE-powered and electric-only versions, but this is the first time we get to view all of the trims without any concealment. The new GranTurismo and the outgoing model have a similar design, although they don't share any body panels.

The new GT sports a tall hood, a small cabin, and a low ride height. It also has headlamps that are vertically oriented, just like the MC20 supercar. The beltline was kept low, and conventional grand tourer proportions were achieved by expanding the space between the front wheels and the doors. Clamshell bonnet with integrated vents, low nose with Trident insignia, headlights situated on the fenders, muscular rear fenders, and thin, horizontally-arranged LED taillights are all distinguishing features.

Six exterior colors and seven brake caliper colors will be offered for the GranTurismo at launch, with Maserati's Fuoriserie customizing program providing even more options.

The three types' style variations are barely discernible but distinct. The Folgore's front bumper has smaller intakes and a different grille pattern, the Modena's front apron is painted in a dark hue, and the Trofeo has a version-specific splitter with body-colored parts. The alloy wheels, which measure 20 inches up front and 21 inches behind, help distinguish the models on the profile. The EV's three primary spoke wheel design, which has improved aerodynamic efficiency, is the most noticeable.

The Folgore's absence of tailpipes at the rear reveals its zero-emission status, in contrast to the quad tailpipes found on both ICE-powered variants. Similar to the front, the Modena's rear apron is a little more understated than the Trofeo's, which has a noticeable diffuser, aggressive inlets, and a carbon fiber lip spoiler.


The Nettuno V6 engine that the carmaker debuted with the MC20 is used in the new GranTurismo. Instead of the MC20's distinctive dry sump, the V6 has a wet sump and, for better efficiency, cylinder deactivation technology. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine in the coupe has a wet sump as opposed to a dry one and is fitted with cylinder deactivation. In Modena, the engine produces 489 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. The Trofeo generates 550 horsepower and 650 Nm.

ZF's 8-speed automatic gearbox is the only way that power is sent to the rear axle. The GranTurismo Trofeo has a top speed of 320 km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds.

The GranTurismo Folgore, a totally electric vehicle, has a combined output of 751 horsepower and a staggering 1,350 Nm of torque, making it Maserati's most potent production model. A T-bone-shaped battery with a capacity of 92.5-kilowatt hours sits in the middle of the car. The rear axle of the vehicle is capable of discharging all of the available power. The Folgore, according to Maserati, can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 kph.

As expected, the GranTurismos EV is the heaviest, weighing 2,260 kg as opposed to 1,795 kg for the siblings with combustion engines.

The Folgore has a flawless 50:50 weight distribution between the axles because of the positioning of the battery, whereas the Modena and the Trofeo are rated at 52:48 due to the heft of the V6 at the front.

All variations come standard with electronically regulated air springs and a double-wishbone suspension with a "semi-virtual" steering axis at the front and a multi-link configuration at the back.

The new GranTurismo will go on sale in the second quarter of 2023, with the Modena and Trofeo models initially. The electric Folgore will go on sale after that, though no exact date was given by the company. The GranCabrio convertible will be available with both gas and electric powertrains early next year. The model's price is yet to be determined by Maserati.
