Maserati has launched the 2018 re-styled GranTurismo in India. The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo has been priced at Rs 2.25 crore, ex-showroom (India). The car was globally unveiled at the Goodwood Festival last year and has been designed by the iconic Italian design house, Pininfarina.
The Maserati GranTurismo comes with a host of new upgrades to both its exterior and interiors. Exterior changes include a new shark-nose hexagonal grille, new air ducts which helps improve airflow.
The sides of the car don't feature any major changes, while the rear comes with re-designed bumpers. The rear, however, does retain the carbon-fibre lip spoiler and dual-exhaust pipes. The overall design updates at have helped the car reduce aerodynamic drag to 0.32 from 0.33.
Inside, the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other features also include Mirror Link, Harmon Kardon sound system and Alcantara steering with carbon-fibre finished back.
The 2018 GranTurismo also comes with seats wrapped in Poltrona Frau leather, carbon-fibre detailing on the centre console and rotary dials finished in forged aluminium.
The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo is available in two variants: Sport and MC. Both variants are powered by a 4.7-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine, sourced from Ferrari. It produces 460bhp and 520Nm of torque and is mated to a standard six-speed automatic transmission.
Bojan Jankulovski, Head of Operations, Maserati India, said "For over 70 years, our quest has been to develop and refine a unique, pure expression of the GranTurismo concept. What we are going to showcase tonight is the finest example of timeless philosophy. It's a luxurious, handcrafted grand-tourer fitted with a sophisticated race car engine, one of the last naturally aspirated engines. The restyled GranTurismo is a car for those who defy convention, those who dare to be different."
