Maserati PH launches 2018 lineup

The GranTurismo is a sight for sore eyes

In light of the company's success in 2017, Maserati's official Philippine distributor Formula Sports Incorporated (FSI) finally decided it was high time to bring in the Modena-based company’s newest offerings: the new LevanteGhibliQuattroporte and of course, the beautiful GranTurismo.

It's a lineup that flaunts a fine balance of elegance and sportiness, with the GranTurismo at the very core.

The real updates for the new line are more on modern tech and added refinement. The brand now incorporates Integrated Vehicle Control and electric power steering to its models for added driving pleasure—a first for Maserati.

The best-selling Ghibli, Levante and the popular Quattroporte now come in two trim options: the GranLusso—for those who want the luxurious feel and look of Ermenegildo Zegna—and the GranSport which showcases more of the carmaker's racing heritage. Both options come with customizable choices to cater to each owner's tastes.

An array of safety features and equipment now come with the Quattroporte, including Lane Keep Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition and full LED adaptive headlights.

Of course, the GranTurismo MC was the standout on the floor. It stole the show with the sweet exhaust crackle of its 454hp 4.7-liter naturally-aspirated V8. At first glance, one can't help notice the contrasting carbon fiber hood with the rest of the GT's red finish. But this vehicle is just as fast as it is luxurious. Thanks to improvements in aerodynamics, this beast propels itself from 0-100kph in 4.7 seconds. With the Maserati Stability Program, exhilarating drives are now made safer in this pure grand tourer, too.
