At the 2009 Geneva Motor Show Maserati will unveil the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic, a new model powered by a 440hp 4.7 V8 engine coupled with a ZF 6-speed automatic gearbox.


Maserati GranTurismo S AutomaticFollowing its commitment to introduce a new model at each international car show, at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show Maserati is presenting the new GranTurismo S Automatic .

The new model features a 4.7 V8 which develops 440hp (323kW) at 7000rpm. The maximum torque is 490Nm at 4,750rpm.

The major novelty is the combination of the automatic transmission with the most powerful wet sump Maserati V8 on the GranTurismo – until now offered as 4.2 l with automatic transmission and 4.7 l with an electro-actuated gearbox.

Thanks to the combination of the 323kW 4.7l V8 engine and the smoothness of the ZF 6-speed automatic gearbox, the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic remains consistent with the original granturismo concept.

Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic InteriorRegarding the exterior design, the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic features some stylistic differences which make it immediately recognisable: the new under-door mini-skirts featuring a prominent shape, which enhances the dynamism of its profile and the new 20” wheel rims with “Trident” design.

The gearshift strategy applied to the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic inherits some elements of the Quattroporte Sport GT S, such as the elimination of the kick-down in Manual mode.

The Skyhook suspension system featuring continuously adjustable dampers provides great driving comfort.

Passive safety is further enhanced thanks to the introduction on the GranTurismo range of a new generation passenger air-bag with Low Risk Deployment functionality.
