Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic

The best-kept secret in the coupe/GT category has got to be the Maserati GranTurismo S Automatic (www.maserati.us), a pumped-up version of the company’s elegant four-seat GT that needed nothing but got more of everything. A larger, Ferrari-engineered 4.7-liter V-8 replaces Maserati’s 4.2-?liter standard offering and sets the stage for performance with 427 hp and added torque. But in a nod to convenience, this version of the beefed-up S employs a smooth-as-Sassicaia 6-speed automatic in lieu of the racing-bred F/1 transmission used on the original, limited-availability S. The S Automatic, priced at $125,900, comes with a more stiffly tuned Skyhook suspension, as well as bigger brakes, aerodynamic bodywork enhancements, and other upgrades to the 4.2-liter GranTurismo—a combination that makes this version the most sporting Maserati in U.S. showrooms. Factory options in materials and finishes allow prospective owners to customize their Maserati GranTurismo S, lending their own personal touch to the car that defines Italian style.
