Maserati GranTurismo S Arrives In Dubai

Written by tonks on June 19, 2008

Maserati GranTurismo SBahrain was happy to be the host of Maserati’s fastest sports car. The brand new GranTurismo S was revealed during a press conference at the Euro Motors showroom in Sitra. There Paul Yates – the general manager and Africa Jade Zantout – sales manager for the Dubai location – introduced the model to potential owners and the media.

The Italian sports car has 4.7-litre engine that boasts 440hp, helping it power from 0-100kmph in less than five seconds and reach a top speed of 295kmph. The shape and style is almost identical to previous models, but it incorporates host of technological upgrades, including an electro-actuated six-speed gearbox that enables gear changes to be made in milliseconds.

A dual-cast braking disc technology system has been developed to ensure optimum safety and avoid brake fade, common during regular use in hot weather conditions. A special sporty exhaust system has also been fitted to emphasise the “burbling” sound of the V8 engine, while its 20-inch alloy wheels are sure to turn heads.

The car is also packed with a host of electronic devices, including cruise control, a multi-media system with seven-inch dashboard screen. Buyers will have to part with more than BD50,000 to own the car and due to its exclusivity the dealership is only expecting five to be sold in the next year.
