2008 Maserati GranTurismo Overview

One of the world's premier sports cars, with an Italian mystique and pedigree all its own, the 2008 Maserati GranTurismo presents a shapely yet muscular exterior while borrowing styling cues from the past. The four-seat coupe accelerates smoothly and handles curves sharply, thanks to a design that positions the engine behind the front axle, which improves overall balance and provides precise control.

The GranTurismo sports an exterior created by Pininfarina, the Italian automotive designer, and from its large, oval grille to its curvy body and sculpted rear end, the GranTurismo exudes Italian style and visual excitement.

Inside, passengers are cushioned by Poltrona Frau leather sports seats with power adjustment in the front. Polished wood trim, hand-finished pockets, and ample storage areas make the GranTurismo both luxurious and functional. Standard features include an 11-speaker Bose Surround Sound audio system.

Some have noted that while Maserati has strived to provide ample interior space, the rear seat can feel cramped for tall adults, especially when it comes to head room. However, the good-sized trunk can carry two regular-sized golf bags or an exclusive set of five suitcases.

A 4.2-liter, 405-horsepower V8 engine powers the 2008 GranTurismo. The engine has been designed to provide peak performance where it's most needed, as well as smooth acceleration and quiet, throaty operation. The engine links to a new six-speed hydraulic automatic transmission with four modes -- normal, sport, manual, and ice, which makes shifting adjustments when driving on slick road surfaces.
