New Maserati GranTurismo Price and Specs Revealed for Australia

The Maserati GranTurismo (AUD$375,000 plus on-road costs) wants to re-enter the conversation as the ultimate GT (Grand Tourer), and it’s doing so with an attractive design backed up by performance car characteristics and a 410kW twin-turbo V6 engine. To create this ultimate daily driver, the brand has pinched all the best bits from the MC20 supercar and flagship Grecale SUV to cleverly balance technology with good old mechanical know-how. Let’s take a closer look at the new Maserati GranTurismo.

Powering the new Maserati GranTurismo is the 3.0-litre V6 Nettuno Twin Turbo petrol engine from the MC20 supercar that’s available in two power levels. First, the GranTurismo Modena is equipped with 365kW, and second, the GranTurismo Trofeo gets the blood pumping with a 410kW variant of the same engine. Finally, an all-electric GranTurismo Folgore is also available with three 300kW electric motors, which outputs more than 560kW to the wheels and is backed by a 92.5 kWh battery with 450 km of range (WLTP).

The petrol engine in the GranTurismo is a state-of-the-art motor with cylinder deactivation, a wet sump, and a passive pre-chamber system that ignites the fuel in a separate chamber. This engine sends power to the ground with an all-wheel drive system backed by an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The resulting acceleration figures for all three models are very impressive, and even the standard Maserati GranTurismo Modena manages the 0-100 km/h sprint in 3.9 seconds. Trofeo bests that with a 0-100 km/h time of 3.4 seconds and the all-electric Folgore manages the same in 2.7 seconds.

All Maserati GranTurismo models come with air suspension as standard (a highlight for us in the Grecale SUV) which brings unmatched duality between comfort and sporty driving. This is particularly noticeable when you utilise the different drive modes: Comfort, GT, Sport, and Corsa, which lowers the car to maximise aerodynamics.

Trim-level differences between Modena and Trofeo are most noticeable on the exterior where the more expensive and sportier Trofeo uses plenty of carbon fibre, as seen on the front splitters, rear bumper, and side skirts. You’ll also notice the Trident logo comes in burnished chrome with a red outline.

The electric Folgore variant maximises range with specific splitters and dedicated wheels in diamond-cut gloss black and front diffusers that maximise the car’s drag coefficient by approximately seven per cent compared to the ICE variant. It also uses plenty of unique and sustainable materials on the inside of the vehicle, including Econyl which is a recycled nylon made from nets recovered from the seas. Finally, the Trident logo and the Maserati, Folgore and GranTurismo wording are all finished in dark copper.

Step inside the Maserati GranTurismo, and you’ll notice the majority of features are shared with the Maserati Grecale SUV, which is a good thing because that was a highlight feature during our review. Technology remains up-to-date with a 12.3-inch central display and an 8.8-inch comfort display, both perfectly positioned for use by the driver and passenger. There’s also a 12.2-inch digital dashboard with four different layouts: Classic, Evolved, Relaxed, and Corsa. Finally, you get handy features such as a configurable heads-up display, Maserati Digital Clock, Sonus faber sound system, and digital rear-view mirror.

We’ve only had a chance to sit inside a static vehicle during the unveiling in Sydney, but we can confidently back up Maserati’s use of “real materials” in the cabin for everything you touch and feel. It feels a notch above the Grecale and so it should for this price point. Speaking of which, here’s how much the new Maserati GranTurismo costs in Australia:

  • Maserati Maserati GranTurismo Modena: from AUD$375,000 plus on-road costs
  • Maserati Maserati GranTurismo Trofeo: from AUD$450,000 plus on-road costs
  • Maserati Maserati GranTurismo Folgore: from AUD$450,000 plus on-road costs

You can have your new GranTurismo in one of six standard colours: Bianco, Grigio Maratea, Grigio Maratea Matte, Nero Ribelle, Blu Emozione, and Blu Nobile. If none of these take your fancy, check out the Maserati Fuoriserie customisation programme that unlocks twelve alternative colours, including Grigio Cangiante (the launch colour for the Modena version), Rosso Granturismo (for the Trofeo version), Rame Folgore (for the Folgore version, and Fuoriserie Giallo Corse.
