The 2008 Maserati GranTurismo is a very exclusive grand touring coupe that is comfortable and luxurious while also providing impressive performance. It is powered by a Ferrari-derived, 405-horsepower, 4.2L aluminum V8, along with a new six-speed automatic transmission--with paddle shifters. Maserati says that the GranTurismo can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds en route to a top speed of 177 mph. Theres braking to match, provided by big Brembo hardware, and sticky Pirelli Pzero Rosso rubber to supply plenty of grip to take advantage of the near-perfect weight distribution. Anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control are standard. An electronically controlled suspension system, called Skyhook, aims to strike the balance between comfort and performance in the GranTurismo, adjusting firmness depending on driving style and road conditions. Engaging a Sport mode for the suspension also allows a more aggressive shift logic for the transmission. The GranTurismos interior is a marked step above that of the GranSport it replaced, mainly because of all the opportunities for customization, and countless possibilities between interior and exterior colors, materials, and trims. Features include a navigation system, xenon headlamps, a Bose surround-sound system with a 30-gigabyte music server, heated front seats, updated black leather & suede interior. No accidents or mechanical issues, and the gorgeous Matte Black exterior paint was just completed in July 2016. This car turns heads and is a spectacular low cost entry point into the gorgeous & identical body style of the current 2017 GranTurismo model

As is so often the case ahead of a major debut, somebody wasn't able to keep the latest concept car from Maserati under wraps all the way until the drawing of its curtain at the Geneva Motor Show. The low-slung silver coupe you see above is said to be the Maserati Alfieri Concept, and, though these images aren't exactly the greatest, it looks pretty good. We like the small proportions of the Alfieri and the aggressive look of the car's front and rear fascias, and we certainly note a more assertive design than the Granturismo it would likely replace.
Rumor has it that both V6 and V8 engines may be on the table, mounted up front and driving either the rear or all four wheels, but we'll have to wait for official confirmation before we know for sure. In any case, this new Maserati, if it does go into production, is tipped to line up against such sporting contenders as the Jaguar F-Type and Porsche 911. Check out the two leaked images above, watch and listen to the car move under its own power in the video below, and feel free to let us know what you think in the Comments.
As a following act to the redesigned Quattroporte and the recently unveiled 2014 Maserati Ghibli, Maserati will be releasing a slew of new products in the coming years, including the next-generation GranTurismo, the all-new Levante SUV and a new 911-fighting coupe - possibly called Gran Sport. While all of this information was detailed last year in a leaked product plan document, there were no dates associated with any of the new products. Auto Express is now reporting that the new GranTurismo will be out in 2015 and the new smaller coupe is expected out in 2016.
According to the report, the new coupe will be smaller and sportier than the GranTurismo, and it will feature a mid-engine layout with a platform that isn't shared with the Alfa Romeo 4C. This product onslaught is a part of Maserati's plan to increase sales to 50,000 units globally by 2015.
Daimler is out, Toyota is out, Porsche is out, Hyundai, PSA Peugeot-Citroën are out and when it comes to selling cars in Iran, now Maserati and Lamborghini are out, too. The definitive pullouts of those last two automakers are said to be reactions to a press conference held by a group called United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI). The group highlights businesses that sell in both the US market and Iran, and works to get those businesses to choose one market or the other.
UANI said it had sent letters to Maserati and Lamborghini about their dealings in Iran, but that the letters went unanswered. Mark Wallace, head of UANI and a former US ambassador to the United Nations, held a press conference in October of last year that referenced the two companies. Apparently Lamborghini contacted Wallace just after the press conference and told him "they were out, they weren't doing any business in Iran anymore."
Discussions with Maserati then took place, and the Italian automaker said it had been out of Iran ever since Fiat announced it was leaving the country in May 2011. UANI said Maserati had been in talks with an Iranian distributor, however, and that distributor was continuing to use the Maserati name. The carmaker has since cut all ties with Iranian interests and has prevented its name from being used, adding that its new models will not be able to be sold there because they won't pass regulations the country's regulations.
