Maserati GranTurismo Sports, Video Test (Part 2)

As its own surname, this is the version GranTurismo Sport With Cambiocorsa derivatives that used racing cars in the Maserati trophy That extra 55 horsepower Regarding normal GranTurismo, we need to provide more to satisfy those who are seeking a strong sense.

You must press the Sports button on the vertical button grid on the left side of the steering wheel. What we notice first The car sound changes completely., Releasing the melody in both accelerating and maintaining where the adverse effect of escape creates addiction.

I say the release because the sound is more sporty and almost like that of a racing car. It becomes more patents than domestic.The sound becomes a bit intense, but it does not get annoying.

Slow automatic change in gear-up, But in a very fast deceleration, it improves the time between running and running when you put it in sports mode. But do not do too much. It continues with Citroën C4, a previous generation radio, The biggest defects of this car.

The shift cam, made of carbon fiber of the MC line sports finish version, is fixed behind the steering wheel. They have exquisite contact.Personally, I think every manufacturer should choose a fixed camera. It is even more logical because the driver always knows when to turn the handle to raise or lower the gear.

Sometimes, the winding roads of the more typical islands of the rally have helped us to know in more detail than the perfect scenario to try the supercar. How does this car behave in intensive use?.

That The direction is very light. And it gives very agile personality. It amazes me. Tracking the steering wheel and making it easy to get into the corners with just a surprise change of direction is done with amazing agility.

This version of the sport has worked hard to improve sport behavior. For example, the brakes are set to the front six-piston bimetallic caliper and the rear four-piece, and the punched disc made of cast iron and aluminum 20% lighter than GranTurismo nomal.

The suspension is solid Avoid excessive balance. We enter the curve and we want to keep ongoing support. In this sense, the car always seems to be on the rails. But at the same time, a system called the system can maintain a high level of comfort. Sports SkyhookIt improves comfort while maintaining that difficult setting.

Where there is a need to see by the eye, there is the gas at the exit of the curve. Excessive excess of desire by the accelerator, as happened to us many times, The back is implied ahead of you expect..

At first, the rear axle slip is inconvenient. Because you own Eurocar of 150,000 Euros, you have to give it back to the manager of Madrid when you return to Port Adriano. Accelerators that easily turn direction, It becomes a addictive habit to transfer large doses of adrenaline and paint smiles to your face..

It is the nervousness of the rear axle on the curve. The greatest fun In the car. Honestly, in this sense the car amazed me very much. I never thought I could spend a good time on the narrow and winding roads of Mallorca with a car weighing 1.955 kilograms and a car as heavy as almost 5 meters long.

When you open the steering and listen to the roar of the V8 engine, increase the engine speed to get out of the middle curve. Then the body sticks to the sheet. It feels like all car enthusiasts have to live at least once in their lifetime..

Besides the arrival of the curve, it is a pleasure to hear and feel. Simply pushing the cam on the left side of the steering wheel lowers the gears in turn.. In any case I had been testing this car for two days, I went down further gearing for the pleasure of hearing that majestic sound. And if you are in a tunnel, you will not deny anything more.

General evaluation

Maserati GranTurismo Sports is the supercar of the most fun play I have driven in recent times. It has a very fast curve, the engine runs a lot, and offers the monopoly and comfort that no other rival like Porsche 911 has.

It's true that it's probably not the fastest car you can go to. Track DayTherefore, A gearbox that underwent normal delays a few years agoBut with a sequential dual clutch automatic transmission on the market these days, Not to the rest of the car..

For the rest (aesthetic and dynamic), the Maserati GranTurismo Sport perfectly matches what you expect from a car in that segment, despite the model year of sale. In addition, the price of 150,224 euros will be adjusted to all that the car offers. By 2015, we will not see the arrival of the new GranTurismo, and I still think there is a long way to go.
