Geneve ’09: Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic

Op het autosalon van Genève zal Maserati de Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic voorstellen, een GranTurismo S met automatische versnellingsbak.

De Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic wordt door een 4.7 liter V8-motor aangedreven, die 440 pk en 490 Nm ontwikkelt. Voor het eerst koppelt Maserati dus een automaat aan haar 4.7 liter V8-motor.

Om het rijcomfort te garanderen, zorgde Maserati voor de zogeheten Skyhook suspension, die op elk moment de schokdempers aanpast aan het wegdek. Onder de deuren zijn nieuwe mini side-skirts terug te vinden en de wagen rijdt op 20″ velgen.  Binnenin beschikt de chauffeur over een arsenaal aan gadgets, zoals Bluetooth en een iPod interface. meer informatie volgt ongetwijfeld!

Modena, February 23rd, 2009 – True to Maserati’s commitment to introduce a new model at each international car show, the GranTurismo S Automatic will première at the next Geneva Auto Show. The new Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic features a 4.7 V8 which develops 440hp (323kW) at 7000rpm. The maximum torque is 490Nm at 4,750rpm.

The major novelty is the combination of the automatic transmission with the most powerful wet sump Maserati V8 on the GranTurismo – until now offered as 4.2 l with automatic transmission and 4.7 l with an electro-actuated gearbox. Thanks to the combination of the 323kW produced by the powerful 4.7l V8 engine and the smoothness of the ZF 6-speed automatic gearbox, the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic remains consistent with the original granturismo concept while at the same time offering peak performance.

The gearshift strategy applied to the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic inherits some widely appreciated elements of the Quattroporte Sport GT S, such as the elimination of the kick-down in Manual mode.

The Skyhook suspension system featuring continuously adjustable dampers provides great driving comfort. Passive safety is further enhanced thanks to the introduction on the GranTurismo range of a new generation passenger air-bag with Low Risk Deployment functionality.

Consistent with the unmistakable design of all Maseratis, the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic features some marked stylistic differences which make it immediately recognisable: the new under-door mini-skirts featuring a prominent shape, which enhances the dynamism of its profile and the new 20″ wheel rims with “Trident” design, which recall the strength and elegance of the car.

A further enriched equipment increases the on board pleasure for the driver and the three passengers, thanks to the Bluetooth® Wireless Technology, offered as standard, and the iPod® interface, available upon request, which complete the Maserati Multi Media System.
