The new Maserati GranTurismo with a V6 Nettuno engine or 100% electric motor

The new generation Maserati GranTurismo has arrived. After rumors, previews and spy photos, the new coupe of the Italian brand was finally presented. This is a very important model because it will be the first from Maserati to be offered in a 100% electric version that we have already talked about several times. The new GranTurismo will be offered in Modena, Trofeo and Folgore editions. There is no information, at this time, on pricing. There is no indication of when delivery will begin. At launch, the new GranTurismo will also be available in the PrimaSerie 75th Anniversary launch edition, a limited edition featuring exclusive content. To create this new platform, technicians made extensive use of materials such as aluminum and magnesium, along with high-performance steel. The manufacturer explains that the multi-material approach requires the definition of new production processes. This is combined with Atlantis’ new high-powered electronics architecture based on canFD messages with speeds of up to 2ms and equipped with advanced electronic security level 5 and over-the-air flash functions. At the center is the VDCM (Vehicle Domain Control Module), a 100% Maserati project incorporating the SW responsible for the 360° control of all the most critical vehicle systems in order to produce the best driving experience in all conditions. The new Trident Coupe measures 4.96 m in length x 1.96 m in width x 1.35 m with a wheelbase of 2.92 m. Much has been done on aerodynamics which has a Cx equal to 0.28 (0.26 on electricity). Speaking of styling, the new GranTurismo maintains the brand’s classic proportions, with the long bonnet and central body intersected by all four fenders. No aesthetic revolution. The lines of the previous generation have been revised, as well as with some of the aesthetic elements that we find in the MC20 and in the new Grecale. The rear view features new lights, a mix between the classic boom shape of many Maserati cars of the past and the harpoon shape. At launch, the Maserati GranTurismo will be available in six colors: Bianco, Grigio Maratea, Grigio Maratea Matte, Nero Ribelle, Blu Emozione and Blu Nobile. However, the automaker has clarified that in addition to the usual luxury, we will find the multimedia system MIA (Maserati Intelligent Assistant) with a 12.3-inch screen. Below, Maserati has integrated an 8.8-inch screen with which some of the car’s features including the air conditioning can be managed. A 12.2-inch screen is provided with customizable graphics for digital devices. Among the options there is also the top display. The sound system is signed by Sonus Faber V6 NETTUNO ENGINE Under the hood of the heat-sucking versions we find the well-known V6 Nettuno engine that debuted in the MC20. This engine will be offered in two variants: in Modena it will generate 490 hp (600 Nm), while in Trofeo it will produce 550 hp (650 Nm). The gearbox is an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. Speaking of performance, the former accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 302 km / h. As for the second model, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 320 km / h. GranTurismo in versions with internal combustion engines (Modena and Trofeo) has four different driving modes: COMFORT, GT, SPORT and CORSA as well as an ESC-OFF option that excludes any electronic control GRANTURISIMO FOLGORE With the launch of the new generation of GranTurismo, Maserati finally shared some Additional information about specifications. The architecture, as we know, supports 800V for high power charging. The powertrain contains 3,300 kW of electric motors. Maserati announces continuous combined power of 560 kW, which rises to 610 kW in Max Boost mode. Torque is 1,350 Nm, traction is integral, and the powertrain is powered by a 92.5 kWh battery (83 kWh usable), with a discharge capacity of 560 kW. At direct current it is possible to recharge up to 270 kW, at alternating current up to 22 kW. The shape of the battery pack defined as the “T bone” is one of Maserati’s “no-compromise” methods and makes it possible to have no battery units under the seats, positioning them primarily around the central tunnel, thus allowing the point to be significantly lowered the “H” of the car. Performance-wise, the top speed is 320 km/h, while it takes 2.7 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h. Formal independence has not yet been revealed as it is in the process of homogenization.

It can be operated from the drive mode selector located on the steering wheel. All new GranTurismo has an ADAS package that allows Level 2 Driver Assistance System.
