New Maserati GranTurismo Sport Revealed Ahead of Geneva Debut

The best-selling GranTurismo S is being replaced with a new Sport variant that’s set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

The GranTurismo S limited edition that debuted in Bologna celebrated Italy's 150th year of unification, and arguably also marked the end of the best-selling, yet aging, GranTurismo S. Revealed here for the first time, the GranTurismo Sport will debut at Geneva next month where the car's official figures will also be revealed. A sub-5.0 second 0-62mph time is promised and top speed should be in excess of 177mph but we'll know for sure closer to the time of the car's debut.

A revised, 450hp, 376lb-ft of torque 4.7-liter V8 engine will power the Sport, which will be offered with a choice of two transmissions. A ZF six-speed torque converter automatic comes as standard, while a six-speed sequential manual transaxle gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters comes as an option. The same paddle shifters will be offered as an option on the automatic. Distinguishing the Sport from the outgoing S is a restyled front bumper that aims to optimize airflow for engine and brake cooling.
