The GranSport follows in the tradition of the Porsche GT3 and Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge Stradale in that it is a more spectacular iteration of an already quite spectacular car, the Coupe GT. The 400 equines gallop out of a massaged version of the Coupe GT's 4.2 liter V8, engendering a 4.8 second 0-60 pass. Visually you may latch onto the unique 19-inch wheels to distinguish the GranSport from its tamer sibling, and a cockpit trimmed in that sweet precious plastic, carbon fiber. Shifting is one of those steering wheel paddle affairs that lets you rip off gear changes 35 percent quicker than the Coupe GT's semi-auto. The GranSport commands a £7,600 premium over a typical Coupe GT, knocking its tag to £66,600, which is the American equivalent of about $120,000. There's no word on if/when the GranSport will kick it stateside.
