Seeing a car in good photograph is always a pleasure. Knowing that is powered by a 4.7 litre V8 engine that pumps 440 hp is also beautiful, but watching such a machine in motion, and hear the roar of V8, it is increasingly attractive. Thank God the Internet is the only means of communication that can bring you all these possibilities, and I thank Maserati who fired such a nice video of his latest creation, GranTurismo S.

In the video, as well as all the details that the images may have already demonstrated in articles that we have published, you can also see the car in beautiful European roads (if you recognize there is a saying that we would like to receive There is a day) and how the exchange electro-implemented with fast MC-Shift behaves when the driver touches the shifter pads behind the wheel.
