- Revealed without camouflage, this Maserati GranTurismo is the heir to the postwar grand tourers who built Maserati’s road-car reputation.
- While a battery-powered EV called the GranTurismo Folgore is being prepared, this version takes the twin-turbo V-6 out of the mid-engine MC20.
- The livery here pays homage to Maserati’s first road car, the 1947 A6 1500.
The Maserati MC20 produces real excitement when it breaks the cover, promising a lightweight, lightweight supercar experience. It was a breath of fresh air, and brought new vitality to the brand. Now the 621-hp 3.0-liter V-6 is finding its way into the company’s more traditional endeavor with a three-pronged trident badge up front: a two-door coupe set for long-distance travel.
As voiced by 75th-The anniversary decals on GranTurismo were revealed today, Maserati has been in the game for a long time. The company’s first road cars arrived just after World War II; In particular, Maserati cites the 1947 A6 1500 as the direct ancestor of this new car.
The A6 series of cars are made by the likes of Pininfarina and Zagato, and they are amazing machines. A perennial favorite on the lawn at Pebble Beach, the A6s sets the recipe for an elegant Italian coupe, the long hood with gracefully curved sheet metal.
The GranTurismo style does a great job of recalling past glories. That’s no exaggeration, and it would certainly be a great way of transporting you to Monterey to gaze appreciatively at the grandparents of this car.
The big news is confirmation that the MC20 engine will be the combustion engine of choice for this coupe. Maserati has confirmed a full battery version called the GranTurismo Folgore is on its way, equipped with three motors that make a staggering 1200 hp. The V-6 MC20 makes a little over half that horsepower but should certainly be pretty lively up front in this combustion-engined GranTurismo.
Few Maserati employees will know about it, as the company had already tested the GranTurismo on the road prior to its official reveal. It’s set to arrive as a 2024 model, and it’s probably the last hurray for a combustion-powered Maserati coupe since 2030 is the stated goal for full electric power across the range. If you like your Maserati faithful to the original, the GranTurismo will likely be the last of its kind.
