The 2013 Maserati GranTurismo is tasteful though not subtle, refined yet untamed. It's a high-fashion, high-pulse-rate, leather-lined 4-seater with stunning lines that shout Italian heritage and modern sex appeal. Add a free-breathing Ferrari-inspired V8 under the hood and smart, programmable modes in the suspension and transmission, and you have a unique take on the exotic-car formula. It costs a lot less than an Aston Martin DB9 or Bentley Continental, a bit more than a Mercedes-Benz CL550 or Jaguar XKR, and has a personality quite different from any of them. It is, in all meaningful ways, Italian. For 2013, there are some styling upgrades and a power increase, and a model line consisting of two coupes (Sport and race-inspired MC) and two convertibles (base and Sport).
