The 2013 Maserati GranTurismo will make its first official appearance at the Geneva Auto Show next month. This time the venerated coupe will be introduced with even more power than its successor. A 4.7-liter V-8 engine rated at 460 horsepower will motivate the latest GranTurismo, up 27 more ponies from its predecessor.
For those of you actually keeping score at home, that’s 16 more horses than the GranTurismo MC. This can only mean one thing for the GranTurismo MC, a boost in overall power for Maserati’s normally strongest model. While Maserati hasn’t spilled all the beans about the powertrain upgrade quite yet, we expect a few minor modifications to the exhaust and engine control unit were made. No word yet on whether or not the six-speed automatic transmission will carry over from the prior model.
Not all changes were strictly made under the hood with the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo. Some cosmetic changes include redesigned seats and a steering wheel. The taillight housings have been darkened and also redesigned to include LED daytime running lights. The front-end saw a few more aesthetic changes than its counter-part from behind as a larger air dam makes the cut for the 2013 GranTurismo.
The official debut of the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo is still just under a month away but we expect more details to leak out before then. Stay tuned.
