London, United Kingdom, 3 July 2024 – The new generation Maserati GranTurismo has been bestowed the honour of Coupé of the Year at the prestigious Auto Express New Car Awards 2024.

Out of 25 categories, the Maserati GranTurismo, in Trofeo guise, triumphed through its excellent blend of dynamic performance, with leading -edge technology and Italian engineering heritage.

The awards are based on the opinions of the team at Auto Express, who have put all of the eligible cars through their paces, evaluating every aspect of their overall performance, price and quality. 

The GranTurismo, Maserati’s icon, and is arrived in UK showrooms just a few months ago, in both petrol form, as Modena and Trofeo, as well as Folgore (‘lightning’ in Italian) – the Italian luxury car brand’s first all-electric model.

“A wonderful balance between driving pleasure and cross-continental style and comfort, the Maserati GranTurismo is a GT (grand tourer) that can do it all,” said Auto Express Editor Paul Barker. “It’s an exclusive and beautiful top-end coupé that gives Maserati even more new levels of desirability.”

Its sleek, aerodynamic design pays homage to the brand’s rich heritage, while incorporating contemporary elements that enhance both aesthetics and performance. The four-seater coupé’s aggressive front fascia, sculpted lines and distinctive Maserati trident emblem exude a sense of luxury and sophistication that is hard to rival in its class.

Under the bonnet, the triumphant Maserati GranTurismo Trofeo features potent three-litre twin-turbo V6 Nettuno engine which delivers an impressive 580 horsepower and thrilling acceleration.
