On the 20th of February 2007. The new Maserati GranTurismo, styled by Pininfarina, made its worldwide debut at the Geneva Motorshow. If you didn't know the company is now owned by former competitor ferrari, but before the aquisition the manufacturer maserati was known for making cars that were subtle in appearance and impeccable when it came to luxury. According to maserati and pininfarina ferrari this new vehicle is the first step in spicing up the image of maserati and giving the brand new life as far as the design and sportiness goes. The car has a 4.2 liter V8 engine, delivering 405 HP, and a weight distribution of 49% at the front and 51% at the rear. It is fitted with an automatic gearbox and equipped with an adaptive control system which adjusts the gear-shifting mode to the driving style and the driving conditions. I would have appreciated it more if the car had an actual stick for the manual transmission but who cares, most cars are switching to the paddle setup anyway. The car sits up to four people and unless my source is wrong the car's supposed to be in the price range of $100,000, which is freaking awesome for a high end car like this.
