- Pros: looks style performance
There was a time once driving a Maserati meant desperate posture at the wheel and a bent to streetcar track that might merrily fling you straight into a ditch. No more. Despite nearly 400bhp at a reasonably high seven,100rpm, the GT manages to feel relaxed, composed and completely comfortable over distance. Good seats, relaxed however correct steering, and skill to take in bumps while not sacrificing an excessive amount of feel.Fast however not devastating, despite a well-favored set of on-paper figures. simply the one engine tune till the total specification of the GT-S is free, however it is a well-judged compromise. The GranTurismo is supercharged by a Ferrari-derived four.2-litre V8 with just below 400bhp, the total whack inbound late-ish within the rev-range. The sprint to 62mph arrives in barely five.2 and therefore the prime speed is 177mph, even with the superimposed handicap of the slow-ish paddle-override automatic casing.Understand that the GranTurismo has been created to use a day and you will presently appreciate the very fact that it hasn't been wound down on track-attack springing and rock-solid dampers. there is a immense quantity of grip out there here with either the computer-controlled ‘Skyhook' suspension or the steel-spring possibility, it's simply that to induce the broader-brush ability the extremes of sense have essentially been censored . strive the GT-S if you would like quicker, tougher and stronger.
