Production years: 2022, 2023
Maserati stopped the production of the GranTurismo lineup in 2019, but the Italian brand was already thinking of a replacement, albeit that one came in late 2022.
The Italian automaker didn't rush to keep the former model on the assembly lines, especially during the pandemic years of 2020-2022. By the time it had decided to launch a successor for its beautiful coupe, the automotive industry had already started to shift towards the electric movement. Still, Maserati's name was closely linked to internal combustion engines, so it offered a few of them, such as the Granturismo Modena. Even though the "Modena" name was mostly linked to Maserati's owner, Ferrari, the trident-badge brand was allowed to use it.
On the outside, the car showed a similar profile to the model it replaced. At the front, the LED headlights were no longer swept on the sides but upwards on the front fenders. The car's front fascia featured a fat bumper that sported the main grille surrounded by a chromed trim. Maserati's design team installed a black lip spoiler on the lower side, in the apron, and on the sides, a pair of air intakes that cooled the brakes. Following the carmaker's tradition, the three vents on the front fenders hinted at the six-cylinder under the hood.
Inside, Maserati placed its bets on sportiness, luxury, and technology. Thus, the 2022 GranTurismo boasted a four-seat, leather-wrapped interior. At the front, the high-bolstered bucket seats were comfortable and offered enough side support for high-speed cornering. Finally, the dashboard blended the wood trims and the high-tech displays for the instrument cluster and the infotainment system, respectively, placed atop the center stack.
Under the hood, Maserati installed the twin-turbocharged V6 powerplant developed by Ferrari. In the Modena version, this provided 490 PS (483 hp) sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
