Our appreciation for curves is mutual. – Maserati
Ciao, Bella machina e mechanica. A type of car that we unfortunately see less and less on the streets. An endangered species of car which, as far as we are concerned, is also allowed on the WWF’s list. A comfortable travel coupe that knows how to combine scandalously good steering with luxury. The class that is only served by Bentley with the Continental GT and by Mercedes with the S-Class Coupé. And here too Maserati, who, with his broad smile and three teeth, brought a lot of emotion. Unfortunately, nowadays it can join the line XK of Jaguar and Eldorado of Cadillac.
The Granturismo was first shown to the public in Geneva in 2007. The same platform as the Quattroporte, only with more exciting coupe lines.The rear seat had been replaced by the shrunk cabin for the one for hamsters, but who is going to sit in the back of such a driver’s car…
The power source is an F136-U V8 engine. Borrowed from sister Ferrari, but with the 64 valve head. Why? Something with angelic singing, crying and especially when she is hot, that clapping (papapap). What a party!
And ours? Well, just fine. She has the colour scheme of the Mc Stradale, she was dealer maintained and only knows one previous owner. Not the fastest, but the one with the Italian stylish bodywork and the amazing sound. And that is what counts, right? See you soon!I'm interested in this object
