The 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport, which will replace the current GranTurismo Sport with a bunch of upgrades, has made its online debut this week, ahead of a global unveiling at next month’s Geneva Motor Show. The 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport is characterized by increased performance and by an elegant overall restyling stressing its sporty nature. Further details for the new 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport specs remain a secret for now, although it is likely that the Sport will enter as a precursor to an even more powerful Stradale in the coming year, keeping the familiar flagship at the top of the range.

The 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport receives cosmetic revisions, including redesigned seats and steering wheel. An innovative functionally redesigned new front bumper optimizes the front air flows for both engine and breaks cooling. A new 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport design of the bumper with a new style profile frames the new headlights with DRL Led technology. The rear of the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport is characterized by new taillights in an elegant, more aggressive, darker tone.

Aside from darker taillights, the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport rump was left alone while a sport suspension and unique alloy wheels will continue to be a part of the GranTurismo Sport package. A significant restyling also shapes the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport interior with completely redesigned front and rear seats and a new steering wheel with a more sporty and muscular look but no photos have been released.

A new steering wheel are said to be a part of the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport package, but it’s unclear if there is more restyling than just those tactile elements. True to its name, the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport will see a further improvement in its performance thanks to a 4.7 litre V8 engine now capable to deliver 460 HP, up from 434-hp. And in case you’re wondering, that also makes the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport stronger than the 444-hp Maserati GranTurismo MC, so expect a power bump for the range-topper as well.

As a result of the power increase, Maserati says that the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport 0-60 sprint will take less than 5 seconds and the coupe can top out at 177 mph. Maserati hasn’t released complete details on the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport power train upgrade, but we suspect a few ECU and exhaust tweaks were involved while a six-speed ZF-developed automatic transmission with paddle shifters remains standard. We’d also like to know if the six-speed slush box will carry over in the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport specs or if Maserati will offer us Americans the electro-actuated transmission, currently available in other markets.

The 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport design would be better described as a facelift but the name change enables the marketing team to present it as a new vehicle. The 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport is beautiful, and has always been but it has always been to slow; 0-60 in 4.9 seconds for a car like that is slow compared to the competitor, a TT-RS does it in 4.1 seconds. Performance figures were never where it should be as the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport is not that sporty so it wouldn’t compete for customers with Ferrari California and 458.

This 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport is all about emotions, the looks and the sound; you can tell it from miles away its Maserati. This 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport can only be compared to Mercedes CL, Continental GT, Virage and DB9. We cannot expect the 2013 Maserati GranTurismo Sport to be properly fast as long as they are owned by Ferrari (economics).
