Maserati Gran Turismo
Last selling in 2019, the latest Gran Turismo range brings back the iconic car to our roads with a modern twist. Expected to debut in three different forms: the Trofeo, Modena and Folgore, the Gran Turismo is refined and ready to dominate the grand tourer space. Let’s take a look at each model in more detail.
The standard model of the range, the Modena, is elegant and classy at a relatively modest price of £130,000. With a stylish interior and tech throughout, the Modena is a classy tourer that combines luxury with ride comfort. With a top speed of 188mph, the Modena is no slouch, giving you an exciting driving experience alongside the comfort of a modern luxury tourer. A traditional V6 engine generates 490bhp, making it a throwback to the classic tourers that made the Gran Turismo so popular. A slick exterior and clean accents give the Modena a modern feel, marking its return to our roads in style.
With a slightly loftier price tag, £160,000, the Trofeo extends past the Modena with a greater top speed and power. Clocking speeds of 199mph, the Trofeo is quicker than the Modena, albeit not by much. A V6 engine drives 550bhp, again a small increase on the Modena. The look of both the Trofeo and Modena are similar, and the differences come mainly under the bonnet.
The Folgore is set to make waves when it hits the road, with it being Maserati’s first ever all-electric vehicle. What appears to be a major switch in Maserati’s historic petrol-powered vehicles, the Folgore, is quicker than its petrol and diesel alternatives above, boasting a top speed of 202 mph. An electric powertrain also provides 760bhp, a sizeable jump on the other Turismo models. Aware of the effects batteries can have on the ride height of a vehicle, Maserati has designed a specific battery pack layout which allows the car to sit lower to the ground than other EVs, boosting acceleration and speed. Maserati has taken the last four years to perfect Folgore’s performance, resulting in a solid EV option for customers that isn’t left behind it’s petrol and diesel counterparts. A price is yet to be confirmed, but we predict it will be around the same mark as the Trofeo, if not higher.
The Revuelto combines iconic features of past Lamborghinis to form the Revuelto; a modern quintessential Lamborghini. With the classic Lamborghini shape, the Revuelto looks to be an extension of the Aventador, brought forward to today’s futuristic car market. A new slick look ensures the Revuelto is current whilst maintaining the unmistakable Lamborghini look and feel. Where the Revuelto differs from past Lamborghinis is the engine. The Revuelto is a plug-in hybrid that produces over 1000bhp, the highest amount a Lamborghini has ever seen. Rear-wheel steering and a torque-vectoring system give the Revuelto greater stability in corners. Regarding the interior, the Revuelto has two seats, with a minimal interior which prioritises performance over comfort. However, a digital interface on the driver and passenger side ensures that the Revuelto has a strong tech offering. All of these features come at a cost, with the Revuelto expected to set you back £440,000, a significant outlay in comparison with the Gran Turismos.
The Purosangue is set to be a landmark in Ferrari’s history, their first-ever SUV. Although marked as an SUV, the Purosangue is a sort of sports SUV mix, with the rear mirroring the F12 of yesteryear. The iconic Scuderia badges are still present, and the car very much has a Ferrari feel. Transcended from the FF, the Purosangue is closer to a Ferrari than the FF ever was, with a tailor-made suspension system that provides a GT feel to drivers. This interesting blend of practicality and roar performance has led Ferrari to describe this car as a day-to-day car, perhaps finally putting Ferrari in the everyday car conversation. A five-door that reaches 60mph in 3.3 seconds, the Purosangue truly combines comfort and performance, whilst retaining iconic Ferrari features. Perfect for families, the rear seating is spacious and comfortable. With prices currently unknown, we encourage you to watch this space.
Audi A6 E-Tron
Last on our list is the EV version of the A6, which is due to go on sale in mid-2024. There is quite a lot of mystery surrounding the E-Tron, with much of the car yet to be revealed. What we do know is that the E-Tron is expected to have a range of around 435 miles at a price anywhere between £50,000 – £60,000. The E-Tron is set to rival the BMW i5 and Porsche Taycan, with a similar look and feel combined with EV powering. With the success of recent E-Trons, the A6 version is likely to be a major hit on our roads, and its release is set to further strengthen the E-Tron brand.
