Monday August 8th, 2011 13:20 Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic gets Sports Pack Upgrade

Maserati has announced that its most popular model in the UK – the GranTurismo S Automatic – is to receive a new Sport pack upgrade. The Italian car manufacturer believes that the introduction of the Sport pack will enable the S Automatic to deliver an even greater performance oriented experience.

Although the upgraded S Automatic gets its power from the same 434bhp 4.7-litre V8 engine as the standard S Automatic, its newly added MC Auto Shift software will allow drivers to change gears quicker than previously possible and will give the car a more alert feel. The new Sport pack also includes a revised exhaust system. Because its bypass valves are kept fully open when in Sport mode, the car has a richer sound than before.

The introduction of the Sport pack hasn’t affected the S Automatic’s performance statistics, as, just like the regular model, it has a top speed of 183mph and goes from 0-62mph in just five seconds.

In terms of aesthetic updates, the S Automatic has been subjected to a number of changes to help make it look even sportier. The car will include body coloured side skirts and front winglets, as well as a black grille that bears the distinctive Maserati Trident Logo. In addition to these styling changes, the car features Grigio Mercury Neptune-design alloy wheels, black look headlights, black mesh side grilles, an integrated rear boot lid spoiler and oval exhaust pipes.

Priced at £3,840 the Sport pack brings the price of a fully equipped GranTurismo S Automatic up to £92,480, and comes with 3 years/unlimited mileage warranty.

Thursday February 24th, 2011 19:05 The New Maserati Grancabrio Sport

Maserati GranCabrio Sport 2011

The new 2011 Maserati Grancabrio Sport is the new horizon of sports cars. With its 450 bhp completely alloy V8 engine it can top over 280km/h, and has the technology to reduce its fuel consumption rate by over 5 percent. The engineering of this superb engine is well supported by the 6 speed automatic transmission, innovations to the uniquely patented Skyhook suspension dampers, and further enhancements by the Maserati Stability Programme makes the Maserati Grancabrio Sport a exceptionally comfortable ride.

Even the convertible hood is part of the enhanced design and handling technology of this Maserati. This soft top weighing only 65kg, allows the centre of gravity to remain in the lower part of the body enhancing the stability of the already great handling.
As equally impressive as its power and handling, is the look of the Maserati Grancabrio Sport. A sleek and elegant design, easily believed to have been inspired by the wind itself, shows off the absolute sensuality and passion put into these sports cars. The style and attitude of this Maserati seems to be reminiscent of the vintage Italian racing cars of the 1950’s and 60’s.
New is the Maserati customazation programme for this car, allowing you personalize every detail of your performance sport car. Maserati being a small company is proud to be able to offer this level of choice and luxury. From the colour of the leather, the stitch of the carpet, the colour of the brake calipers or the material used for the headlining, you can make the Maserati truly your own personal automobile.
