After over a year since the announcement of the project, Maserati has finally begun road testing of their new-generation GranTurismo.

The new vehicle will be Maserati’s first car to adopt a fully electric powertrain and the company based in Modena, Italy, is test driving the vehicle under an intensive road and circuit testing programme.

The ongoing GranTurismo coupe had quite a long life in the production line, debuting in 2007 before retiring as recent as 2019. It was fitted with a sonorous-sounding naturally-aspirated V8 engine built by Ferrari, with outputs ranging from 405 hp to 460 hp by the end of its production in the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale.

Apart from the new GranTurismo, Maserati earlier this year took out their new Grecale compact premium SUV for some photo shooting and test driving. The Grecale will be positioned under the Levante to compete with the Porsche Macan, Audi Q5, BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.
