Yet another set of the new 2008 Maserati GranTurismo photos has been unveiled yesterday. As you can see on the pictures right after the jump, the face-lifted sports coupe looks even more energetic and agile as before. In fact, it looks even more muscular and fit than the Chevrolet Corvette and the 2009 Dodge Challenger combined: something that you rarely expect from a European (even if it is an Italian) sports car.
Designed by Pininfarina and sporting an impressive 4.2-liter 399 hp V8 derived from the Maserati Quattroporte, the upcoming coupe bearing the famous Trident logo on its front grille looks absolutely beautiful.
Before you begin enjoying the pics though, let me remind you that the Maserati GranTurismo is based on the current Quattroporte model, being slightly shorter but featuring the same rear-wheel drive, front-mid-engine chassis.
The 2+2 coupe is set to replace the long-retired Maserati 3200 GT but will move its crosshairs from the sporty Porsche 911 to more luxurious cars like Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, BMW M6 and Bentley Continental GT.
