The new Maserati GranTurismo is a staggeringly beautiful car, but with only 302kW on tap, it is out-powered by even your average HSV.
To nudge the GranTurismo into super-coupe territory, Maserati have unveiled the new flag-ship GranTurismo S which is set to make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Featuring a more powerful 4.7-litre V8 engine, the Maserati GranTurismo S produces a more appropriate 324kW, matched to a new dual-clutch gearbox which replaces the previous ZF six speed automatic.
As a result, the new GranTurismo S is expected to sprint from zero to 100km/h in just 4.9 seconds.
Additional enhancements include more powerful Brembo brakes, subtle exterior styling tweaks and a leather and Alcantara interior.
