But the performance aspects are not the only ones targeted by the Sport Pack, as it boasts a number of sports styling features.
These include body coloured side skirts and front winglets, a stylish black grille featuring the Maserati Trident logo with red accents, black mesh side grilles, black look headlights, an integrated rear boot lid spoiler and oval exhaust pipes, along with Grigio Mercury Neptune-design alloy wheels to finish off its sportier look.
The GranTurismo S Automatic comes fitted with dual-cast brake discs as standard, features a 4.7-litre V8 which develops 440 horsepower at 7,000 rpm. The maximum torque is 490 Nm at 4,750 rpm and it sprints from 0 to 100km/h (0 to 62mph) in 5 seconds flat. Its top speed is rated at 183 mph. Just like its name suggests, the upgraded model features a ZF 6-speed automatic gearbox that improves both the engine performances and fuel economy.
“This Sport pack further enhances the GranTurismo S Automatic to deliver a performance oriented experience, whilst retaining the ease and convenience of the ZF automatic transmission,” Maserati explains.
The Sport pack is priced at £3,840 bringing the price of a Sport pack equipped GranTurismo S Automatic to £92,480 on the road, including 3 years/unlimited mileage warranty.
