The Maserati GranTurismo is grand tourer produced by Italian automaker Maserati. It was officially presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2007. The GranTurismo is a two-door, four seater or 2+2 coupé. Many design elements come from the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, which is also a grand tourer.

The engine is the same Ferrari-sourced 4.2-litre (4244 cc) unit which is currently used in the Maserati Coupé, Maserati Spyder, GranSport, Trofeo and Quattroporte, although uprated to a maximum output of 405 hp. The GranTurismo uses a wet sump and the transmission is located in the front of the vehicle, as opposed to a dry sump and a rear-mounted transmission used on Duo Select models of the Coupé and Quattroporte.

Convertible version of GranTurismo will be launched in 2009.
