Maserati GranTurismo Overview
A GT, or Grand Tourer, which itself is a borrowed translation from the Italian phrase Gran Turismo belongs to a class of vehicle designed for high speed and long-distance driving, often emphasizing luxury and comfort rather than outright performance with spartan amenities.
The aptly named Maserati GranTurismo by the Italian luxury sports car manufacturer hailed from Modena is exactly just that. Maserati started out life as a racing car manufacturer over a century ago. The 1947 Maserati A6 1500 GT Pininfarina became their first ever passenger car and the first ever Gran Turismo to wear the iconic Trident emblem.
The facelifted 2018 Maserati GranTurismo is unveiled in Malaysia in the sole MC (Maserati Corse) form. The 2+2-seater is priced from RM 717,800 (without tax and duties) with 5 years unlimited mileage warranty a 5-year free maintenance program (100,000 km).
Rivals like the Bentley Continental GT is the car that often springs to mind when it comes to setting the benchmark for the segment with its high standard of luxury and performance. The newly launched Ferrari Roma on the other hand surely give its fellow Italian a good run for its money with its elegant exterior design.
