team in Turin approached the restyling by treating the timeless Pininfarina
design with utmost respect. The car’s new “sharknose” hexagonal grille is
inspired by the Alfieri Concept and adds a three-dimensional effect to the
Together with the new, lower
air ducts, the grille helps improve the airflow distribution and reduces
aerodynamic drag from 0.33 to 0.32 for the GranTurismo. The rear bumper has
also been redesigned with an emphasis on the natural elegance of the iconic GT
coupé and cabriolet, featuring a neater design with twofold layout for the
Sport and MC versions.
The interior of the GranTurismo
offers comfort for four adults thanks to the individual Poltrona Frau leather
seats with integrated headrests. For 2018, the interior features a new, high
resolution 8.4” capacitive touch screen and refined ergonomics. The
state-of-the art infotainment system is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and
Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions. The lower console is redesigned to
accommodate a user-friendly, double rotary dial made of forged aluminium and
the repositioned button cluster for the car’s driving modes. The new Maserati
double dial clock at the centre of the dashboard and the Harman Kardon Premium
Sound system are standard on both Sport and MC versions.
