The impressive Maserati Gran Turismo

For years, the Gran Turismo has been the best car for Maserati. It is a car that you always dream of having. The bodywork is styled immaculately. It is definitely a very fabulous GT. This four-seater car is truly an inspiration with great interior and relaxed handling. These features are included in a great bargain for a car costing less than £80k. With regards to comfort, driving this gran turismo has greatly improved. There was a time when Maserati meant you having to deal with having bad posture behind the wheel. The car has a tendency to get you straight to the ditch. This is not true anymore. Despite producing 400 hp at 7,100 rpm, driving the GT will make you feel relaxed and comfortable especially if you plan long driving. The seats will make you feel relaxed. Even if you encounter bumps, it will not affect the overall experience in the car.

The performance of the car is fast which can be seen at the numbers that it projects. The power of GT is coming from the Ferrari derived engine that has a 4.2-litre V8 which can boost up to 400 hp. This is something that shouldn’t be compromised. In just 5.2 seconds, it can go from 0 to 62 mph. The top speed it can reach is about 177 mph. The automatic gearbox overrides the handicap of the slow paddle. From the result of the test drive, the GT is way better than other generations of Gran Turismo coming from Maserati.

Four people can comfortably sit in the car. Even if you have a six-footer on the front seat, he or she will be comfortable because of the proportionality.

The quality will stand up to everything. Expect more from the Gran Turismo. This is the best car for those who want to have something exotic in their garage.
