Maserati released the first real teasers of itson Friday, sporting the new coupe with a light camo wrap and some body trim pieces. The new GranTurismo will be the first Maserati car to be offered with , and will be followed by a convertible GranCabrio. The previous GranTurismo was sold from 2007 to 2019, so this second-gen model is long overdue and, judging from these photos, it seems like the wait was worth it.
The new GranTurismo looks a bit smaller than its predecessor, although it should stick with a four-seat layout. We can see vertical headlights like the ones on the, a large grille with vertical slats flanked by bumper jacks, flush door handles and chrome window moldings. The hood has a few covers that lead us to assume it will have vents, and the C-pillar and side skirts have camo lining as well, so expect some styling trims there.
While there is no photo of the rear, the top-to-bottom image shows a chrome exhaust tip on the rear bumper, making it look like this prototype uses a gasoline engine. However, the EV version should look quite similar to the gasoline car, probably even keeping the large front intakes; high-performance electric cars also need cooling.
Maserati’s announcement does not provide any new information about the GranTurismo or the powertrains it will use, but the company released a teaser video showinglast year. As far as the gasoline engine is concerned, our best guess is that it will come standard with a version of the new V6 biturbo used in the MC20, potentially with Ferrari-derived V8 also as an option.
The new GranTurismo will debut sometime before the end of the year, likely going on sale in the first half of 2022.
