Maserati GranTurismo Folgore turns out to be a bargain!

December 11, 2023

Maserati GranTurismo Trofeo

The lineup of the Maserati GranTurismo initially consisted of a GranTurismo Trofeo and GranTurismo Modena. The Trofeo costs a minimum of 271,576 euros in the Netherlands and features a 550-hp 3.0-liter biturbo V6 engine with all-wheel drive. Enough power for a 0-100 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h.

Maserati GranTurismo Modena

Slightly more affordable is the Maserati GranTurismo Modena. That has an output of 490 hp, also from a 3.0-liter biturbo V6. This model also has four-wheel drive. The Modena sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 302 km/h. Price tag? Minimum 226,911 euros.

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore

Would you prefer more power but would like to pay less? That seems like an impossible mission, yet it is possible. Indeed, the 100% electric Maserati GranTurismo Folgore, with a Dutch starting price of 198,350 euros, is by far the most economical GranTurismo in the lineup. You get a whopping 750 horsepower four-wheel drive and a 0-100 time of just 2.7 seconds.

The Folgore system is based on 800-volt technology with three 300 kW permanent magnet motors. Over 760 hp is continuously transmitted to the wheels, thanks to a nominal capacity of 92.5 kWh and an output power of 560 kW. Thanks to the specific layout of the battery, the car is lower on the road than any other electric vehicle.

Options Folgore

There are a few more options, though, such as a $3,025 Tech Assistance Package, consisting of a frameless digital rearview mirror and a head-up display. For a Sonus faber high premium sound system with 19 speakers, you have to pay an additional 4,235 euros. An alarm system will cost you a minimum of 2,178 euros. Do you want alcantara trim on the headliner and styles? Then pay an extra 2,057 euros. You understand that with some options, the price goes up again. But even then, the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore is – relatively speaking – a bargain.

More Folgore

Maserati will also introduce an electric Grecale Folgore, Maserati’s first all-electric SUV, during 2024. The car will have a 105 kWh battery with 400V technology. Together, the electric motors deliver as much as 800 Nm of pulling power.
