The latest tuning package from Mansory for the Maserati GranTurismo and GranTurismo S will debut at the Paris Motor Show. This new package features several visual modifications but a performance upgrade is also offered.
When taken separately, Mansory’s bodywork for the Maserati GranTurismo features a redesigned front spoiler with a carbon spoiler lip, a carbon fiber radiator grille, added air inlets and outlets, deeper door sills, and a carbon fiber diffuser. A new exhaust system that utilizes carbon fiber at the exhaust tips is also featured. The appearance is enhanced by the progressive sport suspension in the front and rear axles, which reduce the vehicle's centre of gravity by about 30 mm and 21 inch alloys covered in performance tires.
In addition, the tuning specialists at Mansory gave the interior its own brand of upholstery. According to a company statement, the leather used on the interior is “hard-wearing yet exceptionally soft.” On the inside, we see the checkered stitch in the ornamental seams that exudes “elegance and sportiness.” Mansory claims that its package features “expert handcraft, individual design and top quality.”
Among its visual highlights are the aluminum pedals and new ergonomically designed sporty steering wheel. To enhance the performance, the Maserati GranTurismo and GranTurismo S got an optimized ECU, an air filter, and sports exhaust system with two double-suction tail pipes. These boosted the V8 by 30 hp each (GT 405 hp / GTS 440 hp). The torque also increased by about 40 Nm compared to the series models (GT 460 Nm at 4750 rpm / GTS 490 Nm at 4750 rpm).
