More than 60 years ago, the idea of slotting a racing car engine under the bonnet of a road-going model led Maserati to create its first GranTurismo model. The dream and the name have lived on through the years and the latest rendition - another masterpiece of design from Pininfarina - won instant acclaim when it was launched at the end of 2007. It is hardly surprising that this GranTurismo has customers queuing around the world.
Arguably the most attractive car of its kind currently available, it oozes the opulence and feel of a thoroughbred and presents stiff opposition to the evergreen Porsche 911 and the revitalized Jaguar XKR. With 433bhp available from its 4.7-litre V8, performance is exhilarating.
