Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Is Shaping Up To Be A Stylish EV With More Than 1,000 HP
After years of missteps and broken promises, Maserati is righting the wrongs of the past and filling out their once stale lineup.
We’ve already seen the fruits of their labor as the MC20 was introduced in 2020 and followed by the stunning MC20 Cielo roadster earlier this year. The company also unveiled their entry-level Grecale crossover in March, which is bound to increase sales.
However, Maserati’s resurrection is just getting underway as more models are on the horizon including a new GranTurismo. Previewed multiple times already, the coupe will become the “first car in Maserati history to adopt 100% electric solutions.”
Set to debut next year, the GranTurismo Folgore is instantly recognizable and adopts Grecale-style headlights as well as a partially blocked off grille. They’re joined by aerodynamically optimized wheels that are backed up by a beefy braking system with red calipers.
Elsewhere, designers gave the GranTurismo a long hood and a more curvaceous design. Other highlights include muscular rear haunches, a pronounced diffuser, and MC20-inspired taillights.
Maserati has previously said the car will be a “true icon for the brand” and feature “cutting-edge technical solutions, superb performance, comfort and elegance, all typical of the Trident [brand].” While that isn’t much to go on, the GranTurismo Folgore is slated to have a tri-motor powertrain that produces more than 1,184 hp (883 kW / 1,200 PS). This promises to enable the coupe to rocket from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than three seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 186 mph (300 km/h).
