2011 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible

2011 Maserati GranTurismo Review

(4 Stars)  Charming, stylish, powerful

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Grand Turismo is one of the most iconic cars in existence. It will turn more heads that possibly even the most expensive autos in the world. Styled by master design house Pinifarina, the Grand Tursimo is arguably the most alluring grand touring car in production.

This jewel of manufacturing is available in three different trim levels: Base (though for this model, even the base model is fully appointed) S, and S automatic. The S trim add 10 percent higher damping rates to the already stiff suspension and offer a small shift in front to rear weight bias, which in S trim is now 47% front / 53% rear.

This coupe is powered by either a 4.2 liter or a 4.7 liter V-8. Both are sourced from Ferrari. The 4.2 liter puts 405 horsepower and 339 ft.- lbs. of torque through a six speed automatic transmission. The S model offers the 4.7 liter V-8 which is good for 433 Hp and 361 Ft. Lbs. of torque. The S version puts this to the ground wearing 20 inch wheels and a sport tuned suspension.
