2023 Maserati GranTurismo Trofeo – High-performance Sports Coupe with 550 hp

Maserati has revealed its all-new GranTurismo coupe, a traditional four-seat grand tourer that’ll occupy a space somewhere between BMW’s 8-series coupe and the Bentley Continental GT. It replaces the previous generation model that was on sale between 2007 and 2019, but this time around will come with both an internal combustion and full-electric powertrain, making it the first true electric GT. Production will commence at the end of this year, with the electric Folgore model following around six months later.

Foreign of the gran turismo concept 75 years ago the customer basically had to decide between a race car or a car for the road and what the concept of gran turismo did is brought these two worlds together so you could track your car and then drive it home basically by combining this central fuselage with the engine which in that day was basically that of a

Formula one car and making the car road legal by adding headlights and the volumes that protect the wheels and the f1 technology is still with us today the netunu engine of the gran turismo which comes from the mc20 is mid-car mounted and is utilizing formula one technology and that allows us to also in this case keep the center line of the car extremely low and

Allowing the flares these muscles to really stand out and create this beautiful sculpture now sculpture combined with purity is extremely important for us because we’re not designing cars for a three-year lease contract our cars will go into your collection they will go into a concord de lagos so they need to express visual longevity and part of that pursuit of

Perfection is also to eliminate the cut line that we previously had here on the hood and we’re now moving over to the side to be almost invisible and creating this beautiful clamshell hood that in itself is an engineering masterpiece and belongs onto the wall of a museum to be appreciated as a sculpture the face of the car is very recognizable being that from the

Mt20 and the grecala with this very very low mouth of course featuring our three dente which for me is the coolest logo in the industry combined with those vertical headlights really expressing this new maserati design dna on completing the family between mc20 gray color and the new gran turismo so let’s take a look at the side of the new gran turismo you can really

Appreciate the clean construction and the amazing proportion but believe me clean construction clean design is the most difficult thing for a designer because there’s so many things in your way you have to consider the glass drop you have to consider the hinges of the door you have to consider side impact but still with tight collaboration with the engineering team

And modena we’re able to create this very very pure sculpture a very pure fuselage design of the door and the rest of the car when it comes to the front these beautiful muscles that are covering the massive front tires 265 20 and the big 295 21 inch wheels when it comes to this part we’re really applying still the human hand yes we’re using lasers we are digitizing

We’re scanning we’re using data but when it comes to such critical parts of the car that is so important to our designing dna we’re still applying the touch of the human hand well let’s talk about proportion proportion is so important for maserati and of course a car like the gran turismo we were able to accomplish a magic dash to axle ratio and this gets measured

From the center of the front wheel to the cut line of the front door this distance is what makes the proportion so magic and we were able to achieve that together with the packaging engineers and moderna by putting the v6 behind the front axle be able to create this beautiful long stretch sculpted hood now at the same time when it comes to the cabin the challenge

Was to find space for four grown adults we wanted at the same time to create something very intimate something looks very tight very sporty and the trick is when you look at the central line here that is actually quite high because it has to clear the head of the rear passengers at the same time you have the dropping line the graphic of the window this distance

Is quite big but allows us to combine package for four adults with the look of a very very tight and sporty cabin but the result nonetheless is through great packaging that we can hold for adults and we can combine that with supercar performance that in this combination really lets the gran turismo stand out so i hope you enjoyed this little introduction to the

Maserati gran turismo and i hope to see you soon on the streets
