Introduced in 2012, the Maserati Granturismo 4.7 MC offers unrivalled grand touring abilities, & is so much more effusive and curvaceous than the usual Aston, Jaguar & Porsche alternatives.
The Ferrari-sourced 4.7-litre V-8 under the hood couldn’t be more sonorous if it tried. This year all versions make at minimum the power rated by the top versions just last year. It’s 444 horsepower on the base Convertible, and 454 hp on the coupes and the Convertible Sport. A six-speed ZF automatic is the sole transmission, but it’s also upgraded with sport shifting, throttle-blipping, and blessed with very rapid reflexes. The best GranTurismo will drop 60-mph runs in 4.7 seconds, right in Aston and Jaguar territory but a second slower at least than the fastest Porsches in the price range. All the while, it’s issuing out that spectacular engine note–alone, more soulful than any spec-sheet champ we’ve driven. That must count for something in a universe of data-driven supercars.
