Maseratis are unique for their allure, elegance and state-of-the-art technology. Engineering excellence and passion are the hallmarks of models such as the GranTurismo, the first modern 2-door, 4-seat coupé which combines power, elegance and futuristic design with surprising practicality, and the GranCabrio, the brand’s first ever 4-seat cabriolet. Maseratis are immediately recognizable for their extraordinary personality and their appeal to the most discerning tastes. In 2012, Maserati previewed the new Quattroporte that is scheduled for release in 2013. This luxurious, high-performance sport sedan is a modern interpretation of the brand’s classic styling, complete with the customary performance characteristics and fully compliant with the latest environmental standards.
At the Geneva Motor Show, Maserati also presented the new GranTurismo Sport, a model whose predecessor sold 15,000 units in 5 years. The new version has undergone both interior and exterior restyling and is equipped with an enhanced 4.7-liter Maserati V8 engine that delivers 460 hp. The Paris Motor Show was the venue for the world premiere of the GranCabrio MC, the latest addition to Maserati’s range of convertible models. This new member of the family combines performance characteristics developed and tested on the racetrack with the style, appeal and comfort of a full-size 4-seat convertible. Also on display was the Kubang concept car on which Maserati will base its first ever SUV crossover, heralding the brand’s entrance into a completely new market segment.
Maserati’s on-road models are often the product of experience gained on the racetrack and that long racing tradition continues today with the GranTurismo MC Trofeo World Series, a mono-brand championship now in its third year.
