Maserati Teases New GranTurismo Coupe

The silent, smooth, uninterrupted torque delivery of an electric powertrain is exactly the sort of experience befitting a high-dollar, mega-luxe grand tourer. And it looks like Maserati agrees, if the the new GranTurismo is any indication. The next generation of the brand’s iconic 2+2 will feature the company’s first 100 percent electric powertrain, but that’s not all.

What you see here are official “spy photos” released by Maserati of its next GranTurismo, shot as it left the company’s “innovation lab” for the first time. While specific details remain sparse, Maserati has said that the next GranTurismo will feature the company’s first full battery electric powertrain (as teased in the video below). That seems like a good character fit to us.

However, if quickly flowing electrons aren’t your thing, it wouldn’t surprise us if a version of the 3.0-liter twin-turbo, 621 horsepower V-6 that features in the new MC20 also made its way into the new GranTurismo. There are even rumors that the new GT will feature a hybrid powertrain, too. The last generation GranTurismo was powered by a Ferrari-sourced 4.7-liter V-8 that made 454 horsepower and 384-lb-ft of torque, and it’s safe to say the next generation of the GranTurismo will well surpass those figures, regardless of what lies under the hood (or floor).

What we don’t have to pontificate about, however, is just how handsome the next GranTurimo will be. The pictures show that the new GT has maintained the previous generation’s proportions (with a lot of the 2014 Alfieri concept sprinkled in): a sweeping long hood, short deck and a 2+2 layout. But a bevy of MC20-inspired details—the headlights, in particular—reveal that the company’s new supercar will set the direction. We expect a thoroughly modern cabin to also take inspiration from the Mc20.

The last time we drove a GranTurismo we were swept up in its charm, despite more than a few cracks in the façade. We’re hoping this new-from-the-ground-up GranTurismo is a more complete package that befits (and perhaps reinvents) what it means to wear the Trident.
