Italian luxury sports car manufacturer Maserati unveiled its second all-electric super sports car, the GranTurismo Folgore. It features a typical Maserati silhouette and the trademark long bonnet. The upcoming GranTurismo Folgore EV also gets a sloping roofline, LED illuminated triple vents and Folgore badging on the front fenders.
The electric sports car now features a revised front grille and a rear diffuser without an exhaust. It also comes equipped with unique Aero wheels to ride on. On the inside, the GranTurismo Folgore EV gets a steering wheel with an inbuilt drive mode selector and start/stop button.
The new Maserati GranTurismo Folgore electric coupe makes use of an 800V architecture and is developed with technical solutions derived from Formula E. Mechanically, the new GranTurismo Folgore EV makes use of three 300 kW electric motors. One is placed at the front wheels and two on the rear axle, allowing torque vectoring. These motors collectively churn out a peak power of over 1183.5 bhp and a max torque of 137.6 kgm.
The GranTurismo Folgore EV sprints from zero to 100 kph in just 2.7 seconds and has an impressive top speed of 320 kph, which is also similar to the GranTurismo Trofeo. In terms of range, Maserati estimates that the battery-powered GranTurismo Folgore will cover 450 km on the WLTP cycle. Maserati is further offering this super sports car with GT Mode and Max Range Mode. The former limits the power to 80 per cent, while the latter limits the top speed to 130 kph.
The manufacturer says that the GranTurismo Folgore will be equipped with premium features, such as Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA) Multimedia system, a digital clock, Sonus Faber 3D sound system and more. It will be manufactured at the Mirafiori production facility in Turin, with deliveries likely to start from July 2023.
