The GranTurismo S is capably powered by a 4.7-litre engine, which produces a substantial 52kg/m of torque at 4,750rpm. You’ll enjoy a top speed of 183mph from a 0-62 speed of only 4.9 seconds. The V8 engine achieves maximum power at 7,500rpm, and is capable of reaching 7,600rpm if on-the-limit gear changes are made. As one of Maserati’s new breed of wet sump engines, it keeps noise at a comfortable level without fully silencing the car’s distinctive growl.
Through the electro-actuated gearbox, the highest levels of fine-tuned performance are within your reach. Six speeds plus reverse and a choice of manual or automatic modes give you total control, and the built-in MC-Shift software makes every gear change quicker. The twin disc clutch is compact to keep the weight of the car down and reduce inertia from the engine.
The built-in transaxle system is part of Maserati’s proud traditions in technology. It improves the weight distribution across the GranTurismo S for improved handling, and connects the gearbox and engine via a tube that houses the drive shaft. This setup gives the model a unique weighting amongst high-performance cars.
