Maserati has released the first photos of the new GranTurismo coupe. The second-generation front-engined two-door will debut before the end of the year, so Maserati has launched a teaser campaign. Traditionally, future brand new items are shown in a motley camouflage film, which does not hide the proportions, but does not make it possible to make out the details. The GranTurismo is expected to debut with a gasoline engine, but there will be a purely electric version in the future.
Judging by the pictures of pre-production prototypes, the new Maserati GranTurismo will retain the form factor of its predecessor, but the headlights will become vertical, like the flagship MC20 supercar, and the shape of the radiator grille will change. Large air intakes hint at the presence of a gasoline engine under the hood.
The prototype coupe has flat “aerodynamic” rims and door handles for a reverse grip – these details confirm that the GranTurismo will be the first “pure” electric Maserati. The “battery” supercar GranTurismo Folgore is expected to have a three-engine power plant, and the fuel version is likely to receive a 3.0-liter V6 Nettuno.
Following the GranTurismo coupe, a technically identical GranCabrio convertible will debut. It is unlikely that Maserati will delay the debut of supercars, because the predecessors have not been sold since 2019.
Another novelty of the Italian brand, which will be released in 2021, is the “junior” crossover Grecale. However, Maserati has not yet named a single date for the presentation.
