The new Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic features a wet sump 4.7-litre V8 engine which develops 323kW at 7000rpm and 490Nm of torque at 4750rpm will for the first time be mated to an automatic transmission (previously featuring an electro-actuated gearbox).
A smooth Sachs ZF six-speed transmission takes care of the cog swapping for the GranTurismo S while underneath the Skyhook suspension system featuring continuously adjustable dampers provides improved driving comfort.
Passive safety is further enhanced thanks to the introduction of a new generation passenger air-bag with Low Risk Deployment functionality.
The Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic also features some marked stylistic differences to make it immediately recognisable. These include new under-door skirts and all-new 20-inch alloy wheels with "Trident" design, which recall the strength and elegance of the car.
Inside additional features now include Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity and an iPod interface (available upon request), which complete the Maserati Multi Media System.
