Up for auction is this 2008 Maserati GranTurismo Coupe finished in Bianco Fuji over a tan leather interior. Designed by Pininfarina and assembled in Modena, Italy, this GranTurismo represented Maserati’s flagship sports car from 2007-2019. Equipped with a Ferrari-derived V8 engine, this 2008 example was originally sold in California before moving to the Southeast in 2014. Primarily dealer-maintained and with approximately 33k miles showing on the odometer, this GranTurismo is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Kentucky.
This GranTurismo was ordered in Bianco Fuji, a desirable pearlescent white color from Ferrari’s color palette. Clear paint protection film has been installed over the full front end up to the A-pillars along with custom red, silver, and blue vinyl racing stripes which the seller has offered to remove upon the next owner’s request. The car has also been fitted with a set of lightweight 20" Veloce Corsa wheels dressed in Pirelli P Zero tires. One small rock chip is depicted on the passenger-side rear fender while the rest of the exterior is described to be in excellent condition, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
Inside, this GranTurismo sports tan leather upholstery accented by dark burl wood trim. The entranceways are lined with chrome Maserati script doorsills and the headrests are embossed with the trident emblem. The multifunction three-spoke steering wheel features paddle shifters, perforated leather grips, and sits ahead of traditional blue-faced instrument dials. Creature comforts include heated and power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a Bose sound system. Some of the material on the buttons and touchpoints have become sticky with age, a common issue on Maserati’s of this era. The seller notes that the car has always been driven with OEM seat covers installed in an effort to preserve the fine leather upholstery.
Power comes from a naturally aspirated 4.2L Ferrari/Maserati F136 V8 engine rated at 405 HP and 339 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed ZF automatic transmission providing acceleration from 0-60 MPH in as little as 5 seconds. A long history of maintenance is shown on CARFAX with much of the service carried out through authorized dealers. Recent items include the installation of a new battery and the replacement of a tire pressure monitoring sensor. The seller states that an oil service and wheel balancing will be carried out prior to the sale for the next owner.
This sale will include a set of two keys and a clean title. Offering tremendous value, this high-performance Italian grand tourer is just waiting for a new owner to get behind the wheel.
