Maserati teased a distinct prototype draped in a blue wrap earlier this yr earlier than the Formulation E grand prix in Rome. This model, with its Homeric rosy hue and quasi-three-spoke wheels is what we have been ready for. We like what we see. Sure, it is extremely paying homage to the GranTurismo that went off the market in 2019. Why ought to that trouble us? That coupe continues to be lovely. From what we will inform of the Folgore, the up to date traces ought to make the approaching EV much more so.
Company at that putative non-public occasion would possibly know what powers the two+2, however we do not. We all know the battery-electric Grecale crossover will get an EV powertrain with 590 horsepower, the way more costly GranTurismo ought to handily outdo that even when it would not contact the 1,200-hp determine some imagine attainable. We anticipate to get that information when the official debut occurs within the coming months. The official GranTurismo Folgore launch is scheduled for subsequent yr, most likely joined someday within the yr by its droptop sibling, the GranCabrio Folgore. It is thought there shall be an ICE-powered model for the two-door as nicely, possibly providing the selection of an unaided 3.0-liter Nettuno V6 or a hybrid centered across the V6 or a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Sure markets promote the Ghibli sedan with a 2.0-liter hybrid; nonetheless, that choice is seen as a protracted shot for the brand new GranTurismo.
