With a 0-60 speed of less than five seconds and a maximum 183mph, the GranTurismo S Automatic’s eight-cylinder gearbox delivers reliable power. At 4,750rpm, the 50kg/m of torque capably propels the car, and the maximum engine speed of 7,200rpm is timed by two overhead camshafts per bank. The built-in continual phase variator puts the valves into action in just 0.15 seconds, giving the engine impressive efficiency.
The six-speed automatic transmission displays the soul of the GranTurismo S Automatic, and it offers four function modes to meet the demands of every drive. When using the gearbox in Manual mode, the racing-style paddles built into the steering wheel give the driver improved ease of use. Electronically controlled Skyhook suspension is included as standard, using acceleration sensors to continually adapt the car’s handling. The load-bearing chassis works in tandem with the double wishbone suspension to keep the body of the vehicle rigid and stable.
An advanced Bose Surround Sound® audio system provides music throughout the cabin, with 11 speakers that deliver the quality of sound found in international concert halls.
