New Maserati GranTurismo Debuts In Malaysia

Malaysia’s official Maserati automobile dealer, Naza Italia, has brought back the legendary GranTurismo to our shores. The most recent model is the brand-new, second-generation GranTurismo, which debuted in its home market of Europe in October 2022 and is now available worldwide.

In Malaysia, the brand-new Maserati GranTurismo is presently available in the Modena and Trofeo trim levels, with a third version, the all-electric Folgore, expected to be added to the range later this year.

With local customs and taxes, personalisation choices, and insurance excluded, the GranTurismo Modena is priced at RM 738,800, while the GranTurismo Trofeo starts at RM 878,800. A standard 3-year warranty with no mileage restrictions is included in both rates.

The brand’s new Nettuno 3.0-litre, twin-turbo V6 engine powers both versions, with output levels that vary according to the model. The engine, which sits at the centre of the Modena version, produces up to 490 hp and 600 Nm of torque, while the Trofeo’s powerplant has been modified to pump out 550 hp and 650 Nm.

A ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic gearbox coupled to an all-wheel-drive system distributes power to all four wheels. In terms of performance, the Trofeo jumps from zero to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, whilst the Modena takes less than 3.9 seconds. They have top speeds of 302 kph and 320 kph, respectively.

Sitting on a new modular chassis, the GranTurismo’s design language inherits design hints from it predecessor. But it also took some design cues from the MC20 race cars. The coupe has a sleek tail light design, MC20-style vertical headlamps, flush door handles, and an oval-shaped Maserati grille with the “Trident” emblem in the centre. Customers purchasing the sportier Trofeo edition will receive gloss black grille slates, side skirts, and bumper elements made of carbon fibre.

The inside of the GranTurismo was created with comfort and luxury in mind. Its sophisticated features, high-quality materials, and attractive design provide every passenger with a luxurious driving experience. The main features inside include a 12.3-inch centre touchscreen with support for updates over the air, a 12.2-inch digital instrument cluster, and an 8.8-inch panel for the system of climate control.

CARLIST THOUGHTS

One of Italy’s most beautiful automotive achievements has just landed in Malaysia. And while the GranTurismo wears a hefty price, the car is a blast to drive, gorgeous inside and extremely smooth while boasting a beefy soundtrack from the engine bay. This is a machine for those who enjoy the finer things in life.
