A replacement for the aging GranTurismo is still a few years out, so in an effort to keep the model line fresh, Maserati has released this all new Sport trim here at the Geneva Motor Show. Essentially replacing the GranTurismo S, the Sport falls directly in between the base car and the hardcore MC.

The most significant change is a boost in power from the 4.7-liter naturally aspirated V8. This free-breathing engine now produces 460 horsepower – up from 434 – which now puts it at the top of the GranTurismo power range. Of course, that means we can expect a more powerful MC to debut in the near future.

Exterior changes include a more aggressive front fascia with large air intakes flanking the pronounced grille. Additionally, the headlamps and taillamps have been smoked and LED running lights have been incorporated into the GT's eyes. Inside, there are new sport seats and a revised steering wheel.

It may ride on old bones, but the new GranTurismo Sport's enhancements are enough to keep the giant coupe exciting for the near term.

The new Maserati GranTurismo Sport that will premiere at the next Geneva Auto Show is characterized by an elegant overall restyling stressing its sporty nature and by increased performances.

A new design of the bumper with a new style profile frames the new headlights with DRL Led technology. The rear of the new GranTurismo Sport is characterized by new taillights in an elegant, more aggressive, darker tone.

A significant restyling also characterizes the interiors of the car with completely redesigned front and rear seats and a new steering wheel with a more sporty and muscular look.

True to its name, the new GranTurismo Sport will see a further improvement in performances thank to its new 4,7 liters V8 engine now capable to deliver 460 Hp.
