Traffic-stopping design; new interior design; the ultimate in automotive performance and style
The GranTurismo for 2009 has an aluminum 4.7L V8 engine, which replaces the 2008 4.2L engine. Increased both in bore and stroke, the engine now produces 440 horsepower and 362 pound-feet of torque and can reach a top speed of 183 mph. A dual-clutch automatic manual transmission replaces the ZF 6-speed automatic transmission. The so-called MC-Shift system was adapted from Maserati's exotic MC-12 mid-engine racer. Dubbed MC-shift, the new transmission is a revised version of the DuoSelect box that's offered on the Maserati Quattroporte sedan. Also new is an electro-actuated transaxle-mounted gearbox with sequential paddle shifters to go with the automatic clutch. The suspension components of the 2009 GranTurismo S have been stiffened by about 10 percent. The newest GranTurismo S gets wide-mouth exhaust tips, unique side skirts, and a smaller rear spoiler. New high-power Brembo brakes are made using a dual-cast process to combine cast iron and aluminum. They were adapted from the Brembos on the Quattroporte S sedan and can drop the car from 62 mph to 0 in 115 feet. The springs, anti-roll bars, and dampers are retuned for 2009 for firmer, better handling. Inside, the seats feature a luxurious blend of Poltrona Frau leather and ribbed Alcantara inserts distinguished by horizontal piping on the seats and seatbacks.
