Maserati gets sporty

Maserati is adding another version of the GranTurismo to the Thai model line-up in the guise of Sport.

Due to be launched at the Siam Paragon shopping mall in downtown Bangkok this afternoon, the GranTurismo Sport highlights a 460hp 4.7-litre V8.

There are two types of six-speed automatic transmission to choose from: a robotised manual or ZF torque-convertor unit. A particular highlight of this GranTurismo is the so-called Sport button which the driver can activate to make the engine and exhaust sound sportier.

Empire Motor Sport, the authorised importer of Maserati in Thailand, is asking 16 million baht for the GranTurismo Sport.
