Maserati New GranTurismo
“GranTurismo Folgore” is equipped with three 300kW permanent magnet motors based on 800V technology developed with the technology cultivated in “Formula E”. The battery has a nominal capacity of 92.5 kWh and a discharge capacity of 560 kW, which will continuously transmit approximately 760 PS to the tires. In addition, the battery module is not placed under the seat, but placed mainly around the center tunnel, resulting in a significantly lower vehicle height of 1353mm.
Cerati has already adapted the GranTurismo design into ICE and EV models. The new generation is 4,959 mm long, 1,957 mm wide, 1,353 mm high and 2,929 mm wheelbase, with all dimensions increased. The Trofeo is slightly longer than the Modena and Folgore at 4,966mm in length. The Maserati GranTurismo is based on a new lightweight construction made of aluminium, magnesium and steel. All variants are equipped with double wishbone suspension with a ‘semi-virtual’ steering axis at the front and a multi-link setup at the rear, with electronically controlled air springs as standard. The GranTurismo features a complete digital cockpit consisting of a configurable 12.2-inch digital instrument cluster, head-up display, 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen and another 8.8-inch touchscreen in the center console.

The GranTurismo Folgore is the fastest of all models. 0-100km/h acceleration is 2.7 seconds, 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) acceleration is 8.8 seconds, and the top speed is 320km/h, which is comparable to Trofeo. The EV is the heaviest of the lot, weighing in at 2,260 kg, compared to his 1,795 kg internal combustion brother. In terms of weight balance, the Folgore has a perfect 50:50 ratio between axles thanks to battery placement, while the Modena and Trofeo are rated at 52:48 due to the mass of the front V6.
In the entry-level GranTurismo Modena, the mill produces 490hp (365kW / 496PS) and 600Nm (442.5lb-ft) of torque. This makes it more powerful than the previous generation MC Stradale’s performance flagship, with a 0-100km/h acceleration of 3.9 seconds and he is capable of a top speed of 302km/h (188mph).
The performance-focused GranTurismo Trofeo gets a more powerful version of the V6 producing 550hp (410kW / 557PS) and 650Nm (479.4lb-ft) of torque, with an electronic self-locking differential. Compared to the rest of Maserati’s lineup, this is more powerful than his 523hp (390kW/530PS) in the Grecar Retrofeo SUV, but less than his 621hp (463kW/630PS) in the MC20 supercar. The GranTurismo Trofeo accelerates from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 320km/h (199mph).
