Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic to Debut in Geneva
Keeping its promise to introduce a new model at each international car show, Maserati has just announced that the GranTurismo S Automatic will make its world premiere at next month's Geneva Motor Show. The latest addition in the GranTurismo's range combines a 6-speed automatic transmission with the most powerful version of the firm's V8 engine that produces a hefty 440-horsepower at 7000rpm and 490Nm of torque at 4,750rpm from a capacity of 4.7-liters.
Furthermore, the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic inherits some 'sporty' elements of the Quattroporte Sport GT S, such as the elimination of the kick-down in Manual mode.
Other than that, the GranTurismo S Automatic features the same stylistic differences as the manual gearbox model like the new under-door mini-skirts featuring a prominent shape and the new 20-inch wheel rims.
