2013 Maserati GranTurismo Review

(0 Stars)  Damn sexy, damn fast.

New For 2013
The S Automatic coupe has been replaced by the more powerful Sport coupe. The 4.7-liter V-8 gets a 10-hp boost, so it’s now available in 444- and 454-hp versions. The seats are newly designed with integral headrests. Sport models get a bolder front fascia. Front parking sensors are now standard on all but the MC. Brake calipers can now be painted matte blue (in addition to eight other options), and there’s a new light-blue exterior color called sofisticato.
Overview
With the GranTurismo, Maserati has a stunning coupe and a convertible that live up to the brand’s billing as a highly satisfying consolation prize to people who perhaps wanted a Ferrari. This exotic Italian has smoldering curves, a leather-lined interior with the proper aroma of luxury, and an exquisite sound that comes from a Ferrari-engineered 4.7-liter V-8. For 2013, the 433-hp S Automatic coupe—last year’s base model—has been dropped, so the “cheapest” model is the new Sport coupe, which costs a pretty reasonable $129,500 when you consider its style, performance, and exclusivity. The base convertible costs $12,300 more, and it’s the Maserati two-door with the lowest horsepower rating. The Sport coupe’s 454-hp rating matches that of the MC coupe and Sport convertible, both of which were new for 2012. The Sport coupe could make the MC a tougher sell: the $16,900-pricier MC essentially adds only a nonadaptive suspension and cosmetic flair. The $146,400 Sport convertible has most of the MC’s goodies but doesn’t offer its less-forgiving fixed-rate standard suspension. The GranTurismo is really too big and heavy to be a racetrack star, but it excels at being sexy, sounds amazing, and is a comfortable grand tourer for four people while being quicker and faster than almost anything else on the street.
