Car reviews - Maserati - GranTurismo - MC Sportline
Romance is not dead when it comes to the Maserati GranTurismo MC Sportline
22 Apr 2016
THERE are few brands in the automotive history books that have more of a rollercoaster ride through time than Maserati, but that hasn’t stopped them trying to produce emotive, exhilarating and entertaining machinery.
The soundtrack attracts attention and the aesthetics holds the gaze of those it passes, with more than a hint of envy.
But there’s less animosity than is sometimes attracted by the breed it takes its power from – Ferrari – and no better example is the HSV ute driver who playfully revved his Chevrolet V8 at the lights just to hear the Italian response.
The Trident on the snout signifies much history but some of the models in recent times did little to contribute in a positive way – the Biturbo of the 1980s springs to mind – but the GranTurismo is one of the cars that should be a highlight of the breed in years to come.
We got behind the wheel of the limited GranTurismo MC Sportline to see if it has still got it.
