Finished in a metallic burgundy wrap at a cost of over £2,000 the Gransport glistens and sits in superb condition, a real testament to the level of care and attention this vehicle has received throughout its life.
The bold colour enhances the flowing lines and wide arches of the car to produce a sense of drama as only the Italians can. The prominent side skirts and lowered ride height of these later Maserati’s and the Limited Edition exterior options of Black External Grilles, Seatta Badges, Xenon Headlights make the car instantly distinguishable from its earlier counterparts and create a more aggressive edge to this wonderfully elegant piece of design.
For those seeking a more subtle effect, the cars factory Nrigio Nuvolari (Silver) finish is beautifully preserved beneath the wrap which can be fully removed or changed without causing any damage should the new owner wish to do so.
Despite being designed for a more performance-minded individual the interior of the Gransport is extremely well equipped. The Limited Edition package includes heated seats with driver memory, electrochromatic rear view mirror, a high power hi-fi and rear parking sensors. The car also comes equipped with climate control and an upgraded stereo with Bluetooth (original unit available) mean this grand tourer can be enjoyed without compromise.
The interior presents very well, with nothing more than some minor creasing, the seats and surroundings show little signs of wear. Upholstered with full tan leather, the highly contoured sport seats and a matching leather headliner with contrast stitching detail the cockpit of the this Maserati emanates luxury. Another uncharacteristic feature of this sports coupe is the rear seating, again upholstered in a beautiful leather with sufficient room to comfortably fit two adults for a long journey.
The carbon fibre centre console and detailing are real focal point of the interior, contrasting tastefully against the tan shades of the leather and embroidered carpets it brings a touch of the performance to this wonderfully comfortable, refined space.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This particular V8 is a very special engine, the Maserati F136 is a derivative of V8 used in the Ferrari F430, 458 and Alfa Romeo 8C just to name a few. Thoroughbred is an understatement and it’s backed up by some very impressive statics; 395 hp (400 PS) at 7,000 rpm, a top speed of 180 mph and 0-60 in just 4.8 seconds. These sort of numbers mean the Gransport blew away the rivals of its era and will comfortably keep pace with the likes of modern sports cars.
The performance of the engine is only topped by its incredible character, paired with a sports exhaust the growl upon starting the naturally aspirated V8 is unparalleled. The F1 style six-speed Cambiocorsa paddle shift transmission is a great paring for the engine, its changes are firm but fast as you climb through the gears and enjoy the symphonic exhaust note from idle to limiter.
Maintenance of this engine has been thorough; with 11 stamps in its service book, the most recent less than 2,000 miles ago, as well as a new clutch, fly wheel and thrust bearing no expense has been spared by the vehicles current owner.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The Limited Edition 19″ Trofeo wheels finished in Grigio Mercury are immaculate and give the car a very contemporary edge. The wheels are wrapped in premium Pirelli P-Zero rubber with plenty of tread left which provide supreme grip and handling.
Disc brakes all around are in good condition with no lipping and contrasting red calipers are a fine detail, contrasting subtly against the burgundy coachwork above.
This Gransport was first registered in September 2006 making it one of the last cars sold before the Granturismo replaced it in 2007. The car is provided will all its original books, a 2nd key and a full service history comprised of 11 stamps from both main dealers and Maserati specialists. Most recently the car was serviced in April 2019 whilst under the care of its current owner who has covered less than 2,000 miles in the past 4 years.
Along side the service history there are also MOT certificates dating back to 2009 and a dense catalogue of invoices detailing much of the upkeep the car has been subjected to. Of note the vehicle had a new clutch, fly wheel and thrust bearing fitted at 42k miles.
Amongst the paperwork there is also a spec sheet confirming original retail price of the vehicle at over £72,000 with the Limited Edition option this car has fitted and paperwork to confirm a GPS tracking unit is installed.
An epic culmination of performance and luxury with meticulous history.
