Maserati revealed the exterior design of its upcoming Maserati GranTurismo 2+2 coupe recently, ahead of its official debut.
The new GranTurismo will feature both an internal combustion engine (ICE) and battery-electric (BEV) powertrains. The ICE variant will be powered by Maserati’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter Nettuno V6 engine, first seen on the MC20 super sportscar. The ICE model will be offered in two different flavors, the comfortable and luxurious Modena or the performance-oriented Trofeo (Modena shown in these shots).
As the newest iteration of the Italian brand’s famed grand tourer sports car, the GranTurismo continues to carry over a few of its styling details from the original penned by Pininfarina. However, the new car is sleeker and features heavy styling influences from the MC20.
Looking at the car from the front, we clearly see the new corporate face of the Maserati brand. The headlights evoke the same look from the MC20 and the new Grecale SUV. ICE versions of the car also feature massive air intakes to help feed the twin-turbocharged V6 air, while we have seen the BEV version delete these intakes for more aerodynamics.
The GranTurismo also features the new take on the iconic ‘trident’ grille, a long hood with three vents behind the front tires, and an overall silhouette that mimics the shape of the last generation GranTurismo which was discontinued in 2019.
At the rear of the car, the GranTurismo features a redesigned rear bumper that allows the quad exhaust tailpipes for the 621 horsepower twin-turbocharged V6.
Despite having 621 horsepower on tap, the ICE version will not be the ultimate variant of the Italian GT car. Instead, the BEV version of the GranTurismo called the Folgore (Italian for lightning) will have an output of 1,200 horsepower thanks to a tri-motor setup. This means that the car will also feature all-wheel drive (AWD) as well.
In a recently released video from Maserati, the automaker released some performance stats about the Folgore model which includes a 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 2.7 seconds. The Folgore BEV will also have a top speed of over 200 mph (322 km/h) and should be capable of adding 100 kilometers (62 miles) of range in just 5 minutes when equipped with an ultra-fast charger.
The new GranTurismo will be joined by a convertible variant (GranCabrio), not too long after its debut. The Italian automaker has said that it will eventually become all-electric. Proving that this Nettuno-powered model will be the last great ICE variant of the iconic Italian GT car.
