There’s only one word to
describe this: genius. Such a brilliant soundtrack. That’s
what they do well at Maserati. Very nice, on the inside as well. You
can choose to put it in sports mode. A valve will open in the exhaust,
increasing the noise. It’s also possible to make it more
quiet when on the highway. I still think this is one of the most
beautiful cars out there. You may disagree because it’s rather
big and quite pronounced, but it’s nice. An eye catcher and an ear
catcher, because you can hear it too. The GranTurismo isn’t perfect. It won’t get
the award for best car of the world. Unreal. There’s a lot of things
that can be annoying. Overall impression: beautiful
materials used for the interior. Leather, aluminum, but certain
buttons and the navigation system show that Maserati is a small
player in the luxury market. Annually they sell about 6,000
cars worldwide. Not many. The navigation is a bit outdated.
It works, but it could be better. This GranTurismo Sport replaces
the GranTurismo S. 10 hp have been added. The
engine has known many varieties. Now it has 460 hp, 520 Nm, so you
do need to rev the engine a bit. It’s only available without a clutch.
A real automatic such as we have, or a single clutch automated
manual transmission. The latter is a bit faster; 4.7
seconds to reach the 100 kph. The real automatic needs 4.8 seconds. The top speed of this car is 298 kph. The hardcore single clutch
version goes 300 kph. Quick enough. However, it gets nervous
at higher speeds. And then I’m not talking about
250 kph, but already at 160 / 170. You feel the front lift, and you
don’t want that in this type of car. Of course it’s RWD, so when it’s
cold and wet you lose grip. This happens at higher rpm, because
the V8 has to be woken up first. I’ve noticed that the chairs
don’t move back enough, although you can still stuff
someone in the back. Imagine you put this car on the
short list. What needs to be added? Prices start at 200,000 euros. You
can buy a lot of nice cars with that. Porsche 911 is one that
immediately comes to mind, but the real rival is the Aston
Martin V8 Vantage, S or no. Sounds fantastic as well
with the atmospheric V8. Comparable in performance,
a bit cheaper… but the GranTurismo has that Italian
flair, with some mistakes. That sounds negative, so
let’s call it downsides. There are things that could’ve been
better, but they’re not annoying. There’s nothing that really
derogates the car. You just know it can be better. Italian flair also includes styling,
which has been refreshed with different headlights
and a new front bumper. And that soundtrack… You can
make an entrance with this car. When you drive past, everyone
turns their heads. And you can enjoy the V8. Plenty of performance without
being the fastest of the block. Should there be other
supercars around. Subtitles – Maru

    This car needs a dual clutch gearbox. Then they won't need two different models and it will improve the performance greatly.

    and besides… if they wanted more people who aren't Dutch to watch their video why not make the video in English? I'm sure he knows the language, and less people would click away as soon as he speaks.

    Ik snap Wouter's uitspraak niet nadat hij zegt dit één van de mooiste auto's te vinden die er is. Hoezo zouden mensen dit met hem oneens mogen zijn, omdat hij zo uitgesproken en relatief groot is? Zeg dan gewoon dat het formaat een smaak dingetje is
