Review
The Maserati GranTurismo is a two-door, four-seat coupe produced by Maserati which was first unveiled in 2007. It is also available in a convertible version. It embodies all that is compelling and irresistible about Italian cars combining elegance and luxury with high performance.
For the price tag, it delivers what it promises. It oozes style and sophistication. Well balanced weight and steering make it smooth to ride.

What I like
+Gorgeous inside and out
+Engaging to drive
+Luxurious interiors

What I do not like
-Most rivals are better performing
-Outdated transmission

Achingly pretty GT in the grand tradition (except it's not built of tin foil and won't burst into flames spontaneously). Seats four, gorgeous cabin, handles like a charm.  Posted on 05 Mar 2010

Review
There was a time when driving a Maserati meant desperate posture at the wheel and a tendency to tramline that could happily fling you straight into a ditch. No more. Despite nearly 400bhp at a fairly high 7,100rpm, the GT manages to feel relaxed, composed and utterly comfy over distance. Good seats, relaxed but accurate steering, and ability to soak up bumps without sacrificing too much feel.Fast but not devastating, despite a good-looking set of on-paper figures. Just the one engine tune until the full specification of the GT-S is released, but it's a well-judged compromise. The GranTurismo is powered by a Ferrari-derived 4.2-litre V8 with just under 400bhp, the full whack arriving late-ish in the rev-range. The sprint to 62mph arrives in just 5.2 and the top speed is 177mph, even with the added handicap of the slow-ish paddle-override automatic gearbox.

What I like
Sub-zero. So cool even the nitrogen has frozen solid.
On first test at least, the GT is way, way better than even the later generations of the 4200GT, which means unrecognisable from the creaky and badly finished 3200. Seats made from special leather designed to look better as it wears, fantastic fit'n'finish. The GranTurismo feels like Maserati has got the quality message.Understand that the GranTurismo has been created to use every day and you'll soon appreciate the fact that it hasn't been wound down on track-attack springing and rock-solid dampers. There's a huge amount of grip available here with either the computer-controlled 'Skyhook' suspension or the steel-spring option, it's just that to get the broader-brush ability the extremes of sense have necessarily been censored. Try the GT-S if you need faster, harder and stronger.Four people can happily arrange themselves in the GranTurismo, even with a six-footer seated behind a similarly-proportioned lump in one of the front seats. Headroom may be a touch compromised, but certainly nothing that would prevent you from taking a 2-hour journey. Take that, Jaguar XKR and BMW M6.

What I do not like
Not much...
