The next Maserati GranTurismo car is revealed, a camouflaged prototype, for a practice session. but not as many luxury cars GranTurismo will keep a classic style and it will be offered in an electric version.
It is an understatement to say that the next Maserati GranTurismo will be long overdue. The previous generation of the coupe had been in the catalog for twelve years before being bowed out in 2019, and its replacement was uncertain until its official announcement the same year. The new model finally points the tip of its trident, still camouflaged, on the first images published by Maserati. The Italian manufacturer takes the opportunity to confirm some information on the technical part and the range of its GT to come.
The next Maserati GranTurismo will be the first production Maserati to be offered in a 100% electric version. Gradually, all the brand’s models will be entitled to a “zero-emission” version. As for the GranTurismo with a thermal engine, it could take again the V6 3.0 Biturbo of the MC20 with power revised downwards compared to the 630 ch of this one. For now, Maserati remains stingy on details.

Maserati GranTurismo Classic GT in a new era
It was in the streets of Modena and on a test circuit that the second GranCabrio of the name was photographed. We immediately notice the aesthetic affiliation of the sportswoman with her predecessor. The proportions are more or less the same and there are soft lines, a few ribs to bring dynamism, and a plunging “nose” evoking the sporting temperament of the machine. Still, at the front, we can observe the large air intakes of the shield but also vertical lights reminiscent of those of the MC20.
The treatment of the headlights should be similar at the rear with horizontal and thin lights, again reminiscent of the stern of the supercar. The rims of the prototype pictured are nearly full and could be made for the electric version, their design optimizing the airflow around the wheels to reduce energy consumption.
According to the Maserati company, the tests currently being carried out with the Maserati GranTurismo aim to define the final settings of the vehicle. The coupe is slated to go on sale in 2022. The next GranCabrio, its open-top version, will also arrive next year.
