New Maserati GranTurismo (2023): Choose from porn sound or 1200 hp


A 1200 hp electric version of the new Maserati GranTurismo is reportedly on the way. But fans with gasoline in their blood are served first. Judging by these brand new images, the petrol-powered GranTurismo is already on the starting blocks. And it sure looks too good for words…

After a long career – really long, the original Maserati GranTurismo said goodbye in 2019. The car still looked attractive and its V8 engine sounded good, but it was outdated in many ways.

According to the rumor mill, the clean Maserati GranTurismo will get 1200 hp. That will be a small matter for the hot petrol boys…

Maserati’s first GT had only 65 horsepower…
