The Maserati GranTurismo is a grand tourer produced by Italian automaker Maserati. It was officially presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2007. The GranTurismo is a two-door 2+2 coupé. Many design elements come from the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, which is also a grand tourer.

The engine is the shared Ferrari/Maserati unit similar to the unit used in Maserati Coupé, Maserati Spyder, GranSport, Trofeo and the same as the unit used in automatic versions of Quattroporte, although uprated to a maximum output of 405 PS (298 kW).

The GranTurismo uses a wet sump and the transmission is located in the front of the vehicle, as opposed to a dry sump and a rear-mounted transmission used on Duo Select models of the Coupé and Quattroporte.

A convertible version of the GranTurismo is scheduled for launch in 2009.[1]

Maserati introduced a new S version at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show. The S version features a new 4.7 litre V8 producing 440 hp (330 kW). It also has a new electro-actuated gearbox with fast MC-Shift arranged in a Transaxle layout.[3] While the Skyhook adaptive suspension will be available as an option, the standard set-up will be fixed-setting steel dampers.
