The Maserati GranTurismo is a grand-touring coupe with room for four, and a host of luxurious touches. Sold as either a soft-top convertible or as a hardtop coupe, the GranTurismo gets its power from a V-8 derived from Ferrari offerings--but touches like its custom-fitted luggage are all its own.

The GranTurismo is a rival for cars like the Porsche 911, Ferrari California, and Aston Martin Vantage.

The GranTurismo replaced the simply named Maserati Coupé in 2007, bringing the performance of that car together with increased refinement. It is easily the most aggressively styled Maserati in the current lineup, with an exotic look and a slinky profile expected of a high-performance Italian two-door. It is one of very few cars that looks as good or even better in convertible form, the removed top accentuating the rear fenders.

A 405-horsepower, 4.2-liter V-8 had been standard on the GranTurismo, and GranTurismo S models used to get a 433-hp, 4.7-liter version. For the 2012 model year, the 4.2-liter V-8 has been discontinued, and all GranTurismo models now have a 4.7-liter V-8, with base cars rated at 433 hp and GranTurismo S models, at 444 hp. Maserati estimates the standard car can get to 60 mph in less than 5.0 seconds and to a top speed of more than 177 mph, while the GranTurismo S models can takes just 4.8 seconds or less to hit 60 mph, and can reach up to 185 mph. A GranTurismo MC edition inspired by Maserati's racing efforts sports 20-inch wheels and dark metallic trim as well as the newly uprated engine.

In both cases, the engine lives up to its Ferrari pedigree, emitting a low rumble at idle and a tuneful wail under full acceleration. All GranTurismos have a six-speed ZF automatic transmission, including excellent column-mounted steering-wheel paddles for shifting. The setup works well, with the transmission shifting quickly and decisively. Some previous models came with the Duo-Select automated manual gearbox, which we recommend you avoid due to exceptionally rough shifts during leisurely driving. Overall, with quick-ratio steering and a Skyhook air suspension with Sport mode, plus excellent brakes with a pedal feel right on par with other exotics, the GranTurismo manages to feel surprisingly nimble, considering that it's heavier than most other rival coupes. The Sport models have their own sport suspension settings, offering an even firmer ride.

The Maserati GranTurismo feels snug, because of its quite narrow footwells and tight sport seats, but it's also warm and inviting thanks to soft leather and excellent trims. There are back seats in the GranTurismo, but they're mostly for small adults and children, though they look enticing enough to try. The front seats enough space for taller adults, and trunk space should be just enough for a weekend trip. Maserati sells most of its GranTurismo and Quattroporte models by order, with a long list of customization options, interior trims, and luxury features, including a navigation system by Magneti Marelli, "trident" logo stitching on the seats, and carbon-fiber trim for the MC edition.

An new Sport version of the 2013 GranTurismo debuted at last year's Geneva Motor Show, joining the GranTurismo Convertible Sport from the previous year. Sport models get a 460-horsepower version of the 4.7-liter V-8 engine, helping the cars run to 60 mph in about five seconds flat. At the 2013 Geneva show, an updated version of the more hardcore MC Stradale was unveiled, potentially previewing updates for the U.S.-market GranTurismo MC. And making their debut at the 2014 New York auto show were GranTurismo and GranCabrio Centennial models, celebrating Maserati's hundredth year with a very special look. 

Looking forward, the GranTurismo is expected to be replaced in 2016 with an entirely new, somewhat smaller model.
