Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Shows Almost Everything Before 2023 Debut

Maserati teased the GranTurismo Folgore EV. The film, shot in California during Monterey auto week, reveals minimal details except for the dashboard.

Sebastian Maniscalco, along with Klaus Busse, Head of Design, and Maria Contin, Chief Communication Manager, star in the promo. Here, the GranTurismo Folgore isn't camouflaged, giving us a proper glimpse from all angles. Engineers who worked on combustion-powered Maseratis devised its characteristic faux exhaust sound.

Maserati GranTurismo Folgore has identical proportions to its predecessor, but sexier curves and current style. The front has a non-covered Maserati grille, brake duct intakes, a vented bonnet, and MC20-style LED headlights.

The GranTurismo's exposed tail has prominent shoulders, short horizontal taillights, and a diffuser. Folgore's back bumper has a charging port. The ICE-powered GranTurismo should look similar, with minor bumper and trim tweaks and quad exhaust pipes.

Cabin materials include recycled nylon fabric. As expected, rear headroom is restricted. Maserati obscured the dashboard for the debut.

Trident was tight-lipped regarding the EV's powerplant. Klaus Busse said the batteries are in the central tube to save space. A quick charger can restore 100 miles (161 km) of range in 10 minutes.

Maserati also confirmed the GranTurismo Folgore's acceleration: 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.7 seconds. Top speed exceeds 200 mph (320 km/h) with EVs. The most powerful Maserati ever may have three electric motors producing more than 1,184 horsepower (883 kW / 1,200 PS).
