Muscat: Alfardan Motors, official importers of Maserati in Oman, announced the arrival of the new Maserati GranTurismo Sport in its showroom in Oman, following its unveiling at the 82nd Geneva International Motor Show earlier this year.

The new GranTurismo Sport carries on the tradition of the GranTurismo, which has been one of the most successful cars in Maserati history. Since its first launch at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show, around 15,000 GranTurismos have been delivered all over the world.

Last year GranTurismo sales accounted for 44 per cent of Maserati's total. The new Maserati GranTurismo Sport sits between the GranTurismo and the GranTurismo MC to provide the mid-point of the GranTurismo model range.

The new GranTurismo Sport improves on Maserati's tradition of offering rich sporting character and high performance while also delivering comfort for four adults and effortless elegance and sophistication.

An evolution of the GranTurismo S and the GranTurismo S Automatic, the new GranTurismo Sport delivers a range of technical features that enhance its sporting character, both inside and out. The new GranTurismo Sport has been designed to stand out from the coupe market with aerodynamically efficient design upgrades derived from the MC Stradale. While its headlight shape remains the same, Maserati has fitted them with new lighting technology, including LED Daytime running lights.

Capable of sprinting to 100km/h in only 4.7 seconds and reaching 300km/h, the new GranTurismo Sport carries the latest evolution of Maserati's all-alloy, 4.7-litre V8 engine, and boasting 460bhp.

Available with both six-speed automatic and electro-actuated transmissions, the new GranTurismo Sport also delivers a new generation of the Sport Skyhook active damping system and dual-cast brakes for maximum stopping power.

Commenting on the launch, Mohammed Kandeel, general manager of Alfardan Motors said: "The new Maserati GranTurismo Sport comes to continue the success story of GranTurismo S. The car improves on Maserati's tradition of offering a sporting character in addition to high comfort and luxury, therefore we are confident that new Maserati GranTurismo Sport will achieve all the desired success in the Omani market."
