MILAN -- Maserati is pushing further into Ferrari territory with the second generation of its GranTurismo sports coupe.
The GranTurismo launches next year with full-electric and gasoline engine versions. It will cost about 50,000 euros more than the first generation, which went out of production in 2019.
Prices for the full-electric GranTurismo and the combustion models will be around 200,000 dollars and euros, William Peffer, the brand’s North American CEO, told reporters at a media event here.
The previous highest-priced GranTurismo cost just over 150,000 euros in Italy in 2019, the year it went out of production.
Among the GranTurismo’s potential rivals are the Ferrari Roma, which has a base price of 200,000 euros in Italy, and the Aston Martin DB11 coupe, which starts from 210,000 euros.
Maserati’s most expensive model is the MC20 sports car, which starts at 238,000 euros in Italy.
