The Maserati Gran Turismo (or sometimes the GranTurismo without the space) comes in two basic forms – as a two door 2+2 GT coupé and and a 2+2 convertible. It was launched in 2007 at the Geneva Motor Show as the replacement for the very plainly named Maserati Coupe.
The standard version has a 4.2 litre V8 engine designed with stablemates Ferrari and automatic ZF gearbox six-speed transmission.
A number of more powerful or exclusive variants have been intoduced since then. It is thought that the Gran Turismo will be replaced by the Alfieri in 2015.
The Gran Turismo MC Stradale, launched at the Paris motor show in 2010 is a two seat, more powerful, lighter weight version of the car. It also has better aerodynamics that the Gran Turismos. An updated MC Stradale was launched at the 2013 Geneva motor show with another 10 hp.
