GranTurismo Sport - Exteriors
The most recognized GT car design, an expression of elegance and passion
Seeing the Maserati GranTurismo Sport in the flesh will get your heart racing. Thanks to its balanced and seductive form, the GranTurismo shape has been universally acclaimed as one of the most stylish coupes of all time. The Maserati Style Center has taken the original and refined many design details to produce an even more elegant and sporting version; the GranTurismo Sport will delight enthusiasts from every point of view.
An aggressive and aerodynamic front end
The front end of the Maserati GranTurismo Sport is an attention-grabber. On either side of the distinctive Maserati oval radiator grille are two large, innovative air intakes that not only improve airflow and the cooling of the front brakes, but also act as a stylistic junction between the central grille and the new headlight assemblies. There is also a new aerodynamic splitter in the center, below the grille.
Pronounced sideskirts convey airflow toward the rear
The Maserati GranTurismo Sport features pronounced sideskirts, standard in body color and available in black on request. These aerodynamic features emphasize the exceptionally dynamic lines while also playing an important role in airflow management. The outcome of a specific wind-tunnel design project, they have the crucial task of conveying the flow of air to the rear wheels in the most efficient manner possible: an example of form serving function.
The Maserati GranTurismo Convertible Sport is designed with elegant and effective lower rocker panels—sideskirts—that feature a more pronounced shape to emphasize its dynamic profile. As well as their stylistic role, these additions (available in black) play an important role in aerodynamic efficiency. Combined with the sinuous shape of the fenders, they ensure optimal airflow toward the rear wheels, an example of form serving function.
The GranTurismo Sport’s silhouette starts from the famous Maserati oval radiator grille: it couldn’t be any other way, as essential as the large Trident logo with red trims suspended in the centre of the grille’s black vertical fillets.
Distinguished, thanks to Shadow Line trim
At the rear of the Maserati GranTurismo Sport, a number of details make the car instantly recognizable. Immediately apparent are the taillights, with a special burnished finish that accentuates the effect of the 96 LEDs that provide illumination. Below, the oval exhaust tips of the tailpipes are black, complementing the standard Shadow Line trim. The Chrome Line option, with its wealth of elegant chrome-plated finishes, is available on request.
Blue becomes Sofisticato
The forceful lines and rhythmic movement of the Maserati GranTurismo Sport are enhanced by the metallescent Blu Sofisticato finish, a color made available especially for this model and which makes the bodywork even more alluring. Filling the wheel wells are large, 20-inch Astro Design rims, whose design highlights large Brembo brake calipers, also available in an original Blu Opaco Anodizzato (anodized matte blue) finish that reflects the car’s sophisticated style.
