2023 Maserati GranTurismo showcased ahead of official launch
Ahead of its impending introduction, Italian luxury automaker Maserati has displayed the external design of its forthcoming Maserati GranTurismo sports vehicle. Both internal combustion engines and electric motors are available for the new GranTurismo.
Although the exterior of the new GranTurismo resembles that of the earlier model, there are some key differences. The Maserati grille is circular in form and has the company's signature "Trident" insignia in the centre. The bonnet has two scoops that appear to improve airflow. Along with tiny, vertical headlights with thin, L-shaped LED daytime running lamps, the new GranTurismo also boasts them.
With three rectangular air vents on the front fenders, a nearly comparable glasshouse design, and the Trident emblem on the C-pillar, the new model has a very similar profile to the previous one. The new model is depicted as having flush-fitting door handles, while the earlier model featured pull-out door handles.
The Maserati GranTurismo's small LED taillamps are joined by a thin chrome strip, and the new super GT has four exhaust pipes in addition to a diffuser.
The Maserati Nettuno 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine, originally seen on the MC20 supercar, will power the internal combustion models. The Maserati GranTurismo will be available with a V6 engine in two body styles: Modena and Trofeo. The former is seen in the most recent batch of photos from the Italian company, while the latter is anticipated to produce roughly 630PS.
It is also anticipated to have a hybrid drivetrain, albeit due to its location, it might not receive the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder mild-hybrid drivetrain and instead might receive a hybridized Nettuno V6 drivetrain.
The GranTurismo is also anticipated to include an electric motor. Dubbed the Granturismo Folgore, this version of the super GT is anticipated to be the most potent and speedy. According to the Italian automaker, the electric Grecale will feature 800Nm of torque and a 105kW battery, which should give it a range of up to 560km. It is anticipated that the new Granturismo would have the same powerplant but will be a little speedier and have a greater range.
The Levante hybrid and the MC20 will be introduced in India this year, while the Grecale SUV is expected to come the following year, according to the Italian automaker.
