The Maserati Granturismo Was First Officially Showcased To The Worlds Motoring Press And The Company`s Well Healed Clients At The 2007 Geneva Motor Show, With This Radical New Model Designed By Jason Castriota From Pininfarina, To Take The Maserati Coupe To A Whole New Level Compared To The Models Predecessor. Ever Since 1947, The Italian Car Giant Came Up With The Original Idea Of Placing A Raced Designed Engine Into Their Road Going Vehicles, Which Gave Birth To The Glorious Maserati A6 1500 GT Pininfarina, This Being The First Real Maserati Granturismo And Ever Since This First Incarnation, The Maserati Brand Has Been Synonymous With Leading The Way On The Production Of Dramatic And Desirable High End Performance Cars. When The First Cars Rolled Off The Production Line In Modena Italy, They Had Been Fitted With The Four Point Two Litre V8 Engine, However In 2008 The Company Decided To Increase The Cars Global Popularity With The Induction Of Maserati Granturismo S Variant, With These Cars To Be Fitted With The F136 Unit, More Commonly Known As The Ferrari-Maserati Four Point Seven Litre 90° V8 Engine, Which Gave Us An Astonishing Brake Horse Power Reading Of 440 With A Torque Value Of 361 lb-ft, Which Can Accelerate Both Driver And Three Passengers From 0-62MPH In Just 5.0 Seconds And Would Further Elegantly Glide To An Electrically Limited Top Speed Of 183 MPH, With All This Power Perfectly Controlled By The Six Speed ZF Automatic Transmission. At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, an update to the GranTurismo MC Stradale was unveiled. It features an updated 4.7 L (4,691 cc) V8 engine rated at 460 BHP at 7,000 rpm and 520 N⋅m (384 lbf⋅ft) of torque at 4,750 rpm, as well as the MC Race Shift 6-speed robotized manual gearbox which shifts in 60 milliseconds in 'race' mode. The top speed is 188 mph. All models were built at the historic factory in viale Ciro Menotti in Modena.
