PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Touring Superleggera Sciadipersia Cabriolet Just Might Be The Secret Star of the Geneva Motor Show

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show brought out a vociferous diet of coachbuilt cars, including the Touring Superleggera Sciadipersia Cabriolet. Developed and built by famous Italian coachbuilder Touring Superleggera, the Sciadipersia Cabriolet is the open-top version of the 2018 Sciadipersia that the company brought to Geneva last year. The design of the Sciadipersia Cabriolet remains true to the look of its coupe sibling, minus, of course, the hard top. Power is provided by a naturally aspirated V-8 engine that produces a tidy 468 horsepower. Touring Superleggera only plans to build 15 units of the Sciadipersia Cabriolet, the price of which has yet to be announced.

PostHeaderIcon Pogea Racing Maserati GranCabrio

German tuning company Pogea Racing crafted an all-new tuning kit for the Maserati GranCabrio, and consequently, for the Gran Turismo. The dated Italian sports car from Maserati is on its last legs on the market. We can expect discontinuation as early as next year, but that did not stop Pogea Racing from creating a one of a kind tuning kit for what is, probably, one of the most beautiful designs in the history of the automobile. Based around the GranCabrio, the Pogea Racing kit includes suspension tweaks, an engine upgrade, and interior modifications. External body kit? None of that I am afraid; however, the Maserati GranCabrio and the GranTurismo are already astoundingly beautiful.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2007 Maserati GranTurismo

Designed by Pininfarina, the Maserati GranTurismo is one gorgeous looking car, even if it has been on the market for a decade now. It has a timeless design, though, and while it may be time for it to be replaced, the car will remain relevant for years to come, eventually becoming a collectible. After all, it was the first grand tourer that was developed under Ferrari ownership. It’s powered by a Ferrari-designed 4.7-liter V-8 that’s good for some 454 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. Channeled through a ZF, six-speed automatic, it’s good enough to get the GT up to 60mph in 4.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 185 mph. Given the fact that its time is drawing short on the market, we decided to honor it a bit and make it our wallpaper of the day. We’ve picked our favorite and thrown in a gallery so you can do the same. Enjoy!

PostHeaderIcon Maserati Stops Production of its Models

Maserati is having a hard time selling its vehicles recently, and as a result, the Italian automaker is stopping production on most of its vehicles until January 15. According to Automotive News Europe, Maserati will halt production of the Ghibli and Quattroporte for the next month. Likewise, production of the GranTurismo and Grancabrio models have been put on hold until January 8 while the Levante’s production will stop from December 20 to January 15.

“These production stoppages are potentially catastrophic if the Italian automaker doesn’t turn its fortunes around quick”

These production stoppages are more than just bad news for Maserati; they’re potentially catastrophic if the Italian automaker doesn’t turn its fortunes around quick. The Italian automaker can spin this around anyway it can, but at the end of the day, halting production of one model, let alone the entire lineup, is a sign that Maserati isn’t selling as many models as it’s building. It’s a classic case of low demand torpedoing the brand’s supply chain.

The report from Automotive News Europe adds that slow sales in China are largely to blame for the stoppage. That was the case earlier this year when Maserati stopped production of the Levante on two separate occasions. It said publicly that new import rules in the country were the big reason for the production stoppage. But given its current predicament, it’s easy to read the tea leaves and see that there’s more to it than “import rules.”


2018 Maserati GranTurismo - image 721836
“Maserati will halt production once again due to slow sales for the company’s models, and assembly of most products won’t get back underway until January 15”

For now, it’s unclear how Maserati plans to jolt life back to its lineup. There have been reports that the Levante will be expanded to add a high-performance GTS variant that will have 570 horsepower coming out of Ferrari’s 3.8-liter bi-turbo V-8 engine. There’s also been talk that a new GranTurismo is still on the cards. Word on that front suggests that Maserati will use a new all-aluminum platform for the performance coupe, to go with a powertrain that will come with an electrically driven compressor.

As ambitious as Maserati’s plans are, it’s not going to help clear up the mess the company is in now. The lack of demand in China is alarming considering how big and fruitful that market is for performance and luxury brands.

Maserati will halt production once again due to slow sales for the company’s models, and assembly of most products won’t get back underway until January 15. Slow sales in China are largely to blame for the latest stoppage. Let’s hope that Maserati gets out of this rut quickly because if it doesn’t, the roof may fall quickly on the Italian automaker.

PostHeaderIcon Maserati GranTurismo

The Maserati GranTurismo was introduced in 2007 a replacement for the Coupe, which in turn was the first grand tourer developed under Ferrari ownership. Offered in both coupe and convertible body styles, the GranTurismo was designed by Pininfarina and launched with two V-8 engines co-developed with Ferrari. A 4.2-liter V-8 powered the base model, while a bigger, 4.7-liter V-8 was offered in the S, MC Stradale, and Sport models. Although it was believed that the GranTurismo would be replaced altogether in in 2018, Maserati launched a new update in 2017.

Essentially a facelift, the 2018-model-year upgrade brings revised aerodynamics on the outside and new technology on the inside. The Italians also changed the drivetrain lineup, ditching the 4.2-liter V-8 as well as the MC Stradale model. From now on, the GranTurismo is available in only two trim levels, the Sport and the MC. Unfortunately, output remains unchanged, which means that the grand tourer might not be around for too long. Find out what’s new in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Pops’ Rants: Civic Type R Drama and Why the New GranTurismo Sucks

The 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed is well underway, and I couldn’t be happier. Long live internet video streaming, old track, short but exciting race tracks, and the good people taking care of the Goodwood House. I’m a happy chap, but hey, there’s still room for rants. And boy there’s plenty to talk about this week. You might find it hard to believe, but there’s something about Goodwood that has been bothering me for years. It’s the hill climb record, which stands since 1999 when Nick Heidfeld completed the course in 41.6 seconds in a McLaren MP4/13 Formula One car. Really, now; isn’t there anyone capable enough to put together a car that’s faster than that?

Yes, I know, it’s a Formula One car and these things are really fast and aerodynamic, but the MP4/13 dates back to 1999. That’s 18 years. Eighteen!!! You know what changed in 18 years on the Nurburgring? The lap record was improved by more than a minute. That’s about 15 percent, which makes sense given how fast cars and technology are evolving nowadays. Yet, no one is able to put Heidfeld’s record to rest. Not even the Peugeot 208 T16, which set a seemingly unbeatable record at Pikes Peak, was able to do that back in 2014 when it completed the course three seconds slower.

2018-granturismo

The Goodwood Festival of Speed this year saw the debut of the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo and its open-top version, the GranCabrio. The revised model gets a new sharknose grille inspired by the Alfieri concept, but that is really about it. Well, that and a new infotainment system. 

Still, the big old Maser GT is so well-loved everywhere, people are very appreciative of these not-so-deep changes. And to be fair the new nose with its hexagonal grille and lower air ducts does give the car a fresh look. The rear bumper is slightly revised as well, but you’d be hard-pressed to notice any difference. That said, the new upgrades do reduce aerodynamic drag from 0.33 to 0.32 for the GranTurismo and from 0.35 to 0.33 for the GranTurismo Convertible.

The interior is as sumptuous as ever with its individual Poltrona Frau leather, but as mentioned 2018 Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio come with a new high-resolution 8.4” capacitive touch screen featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions. There is also a double rotary dial for driving modes, and a new Harman Kardon Premium Sound system. The choice of engine for the 2018 GT and GC is a 4.7-liter V8 with 454 hp and 384 ft-lb of torque mated to a six-speed ZF auto box. If you want more oomph you’ll have to wait for the MC variant.

PostHeaderIcon Maserati GranTurismo Clings to Life with New Sport Special Edition

The Maserati GranTurismo turns 10 in 2017 and refuses to die. Not that I want it to die, but just when I thought that the grand tourer was almost forgotten, the Italian firm popped up with a new special-edition model at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Called the GranTurismo Sport Special, it celebrates the 60th anniversary of the 3500 GT, a sports car that also debuted at the Geneva Motor Show and became one of the brand’s most iconic models.

Available for both the GranTurismo and GranCabrio models, the Sport Special Edition standards out by means of a new Rosso Italiano, three-layer paint – which mimics the red of Juan Manuel Fangio’s F1-winning 250F race car – and 20-inch alloy wheels in Glossy Black with “Special Edition” logos. Customers can also pick from other two special colors or four of the standard hues in the GranTurismo palette.

The interior has also been reimagined around Poltrona Frau leather or a leather/Alcantara combination for the upholstery and new stitching available in four different combinations. Maserati also added door sills in carbon fiber featuring the “Special Edition logo” and the dedicated plate on the central tunnel with a carbon fiber holder, commemorating the anniversary and the limited production run of 400 units.

There are no changes in the drivetrain compartment, so both the GranTurismo and GranCabrio feature the standard Ferrari-made, 4.7-liter V-8 rated at 454 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. Transmission choices include a six-speed sequential or automatic gearboxes.

Only 400 examples will be made, and chances are that the Sport Special is among the final iterations of the current GranTurismo and GranCabrio.

Fairy Design Maserati GranTurismo-0

The 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon is shaping up to be a pretty awesome show on account of the cars that are converging on the place. We looked at what the guys at Rowen are bringing to the party, now let’s check out an offering from another prominent Japanese tuner. Meet the wide body Fairy Design Maserati GranTurismo.

Many tuners these days are coming up with new kits for the Maser GT, even though the car is kind of old now and is getting ready to be replaced. But that could be the reason why, because older versions of the GT are now affordable for more people and they might wanna spice up their second-hand buy with a cool body kit. That’s where cars like Fairy Design Maserati GranTurismo come into play.

Of course, if you go for the wide body version you also get front and rear fender extensions and the necessary air suspension system and the wide wheels that are vital parts of any super wide car.

Liberty Walk Maserati GranTurismo-1

While we are waiting for our first proper look at LB-Performance Audi R8, the Japanese tuner goes and ahead gives up a preview of their upcoming kit for an Italian beauty. Liberty Walk Maserati GranTurismo is going to be the first proper wide body treatment for this car.

Now, it is almost a given that people are going to be divided into two groups over Liberty Walk Maserati GranTurismo. One group will absolutely love it while the other will loath it with an unbridled passion, complaining about how wrong it is to mess around with a classic design like that of the old Maser. And it will be understandable.

Liberty Walk Maserati GranTurismo-2

The thing is, the GranTurismo has been around for long enough now, and unless Maserati comes up with a replacement for it soon, people are going to do all sorts of unspeakable things to it to keep the looks fresh. Not that what is proposed with Liberty Walk Maserati GranTurismo is bad, but you get the picture.

Liberty Walk Maserati GranTurismo-3

The ingredients of this kit, as you probably know from previous LB cars, include a pair of custom bumper integrating in them massive new aero parts including front splitter and rear diffuser, plus side skirts, and the all-important, bolt-on extended fenders. Airrex air suspension and a set of fat wheels and tires are among the other necessary bits.

Vilner Maserati GranTurismo-0

Image is everything to Bulgarian tuner Vilner. They are arguably the world’s finest interior specialist and they owe their success to being excessively picky about the colors and design they pick. Vilner Maserati GranTurismo is a great showcase of the tuner’s unique taste.

Inspired, by the looks of things, by high-end night clubs, Vilner Maserati GranTurismo gets a dark black interior garnished with red stitching and piping throughout the cabin. It’s a unique shade of red which, with that rich black as the backdrop, looks almost luminous, like it’s neon or something. Looks pretty cool.

Vilner Maserati GranTurismo comes with revised seat upholstery design which maintains the essence of Maserati’s signature style, but enhance it a little bit by adding interesting patterns to it and give it the aforementioned red stitching and piping. The same sort of treatment is found on the dashboard, door cards, center console, and the steering wheel. The dashboard also gets some nice Alcantara accents.

This Maser GT is a 2007 model powered by a 405 hp/460 Nm V8 engine and has the early automatic paddle shift transmission which has doesn’t enjoy a very good reputation for performance or comfort.

PostHeaderIcon Dapper Maser: Matte Red GranTurismo on Vossen Wheels

Matte Red GranTurismo-1

Exclusive Motoring in collaboration with Vossen Wheels has created a car that is without a doubt one of the hottest Maseratis in Miami right now. The matte red GranTurismo they have prepared features visual and suspension upgrade from Novitec and wheels from Vossen. And it looks totally dope.

This heavily tricked-out Maserati GranTruismo MC Sportline edition is equipped with Novitec Tridente bespoke aero parts including front and rear spoilers and rear diffuser, plus blacked-out grilles and smoked lights. These parts work with the unique satin matte red wrap that make the Maser look like an unpolished precious stone.

As mentioned, the GranTurismo also features Novitec sports suspension; a modification that was required in order to make those Vossen Forged VPS-306 wheels look perfect inside the spacious fenders of the car. We’re glad they went dark and classy paint finish for the wheels rather than a silly color like gold or candy red as some other tuners tend to do.

This Maserati GT came into the tuner’s workshop already dripping with style and power – 454hp V8 and a top speed of 185 mph. What they’ve done is add is give the car more swagger, thus turning it into a real Dapper Don.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Maserati GranTurismo On Schedule; GranCabrio To Be Axed

With the Alfieri set to be unveiled in 2016, Maserati is also working on a successor to the GranTurismo, which will surprisingly not feature a GranCabrio version anymore. The information comes straight from Maserati CEO Harald Wester, who recently spoke with Car Magazine about the matter at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. On schedule to be launched sometime in 2018, the next GranTurismo will likely share its architecture with the Ghibli and Quattroporte, but will only come with rear-wheel-drive, unlike the optionally AWD sedans.

“The convertible will be discontinued. The Americans love it, but one major market alone simply does not generate enough volume. The new coupe will be a fully focused driver’s car – nimble, agile, responsive and stuffed with serious V8 power, not to mention a cascade of low-end torque.” Wester told Car Magazine. With Maserati all about sales volume after launching the successful Ghibli and Quattroporte, it’s no wonder that Wester wants to keep the momentum going.

It’s probable that the new GranTurismo will be equipped with a version of the twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter V-8 currently used in the Quattroporte GTS, likely paired exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF – especially seeing that the manual transmission has gone the way of the dodo with companies like Ferrari. Don’t fret about Harald Wester’s decision though, as Maserati will not remain without a convertible in its lineup. The upcoming Alfieri is set to spawn an open-top version of its own, even though that model will be slightly smaller than the current GranCabrio.
