The last time we saw the next-gen Maserati GranTurismo testing in the snow, it was deceptively sporting the body of an Alfa Romeo Giulia. The coupe was stripped of its disguise in mid-2021, and Maserati has been slow to remove the real model’s camouflage.
The latest spy shots aren’t all that different from the previous shots, but a closer look reveals some new details about the upcoming GranTurismo.
The camouflage that once hid the grille, fascia and headlights is now gone, revealing vertical lighting elements, the familiar-looking louvered grille and a wide lower grille opening flanked by large air intakes.
The diminishing camouflage is also reflected at the rear, where we can now see more of the narrow taillights. The rear diffuser isn’t camouflaged either, and a strip of chrome appears to run across the trunk between the taillights. The new design looks like an evolution of the previous design, which isn’t a bad thing.
We haven’t seen the interior yet, but we suspect it’s greatly improved compared to the previous model. We’ll likely see the latest in infotainment tech, which is likely to include a digital instrument cluster. Such a system could already be seen in the Maserati Grecale, which is also under development at the Italian brand.
While we get to see a little more of the new GranTurismo, we don’t have any new information on what will be powering it. Rumor has it that it will get the 630hp (456kW) Nettuno twin-turbocharged V6 from the MC20, although it’s said to be slightly less powerful in the GT.
Maserati actually wanted to present the new GranTurismo in November last year, but due to the ongoing shortage of chips in the auto industry, it didn’t happen. Instead, the automaker will unveil the model in the first half of this year. Later there will also be a fully electric version.
