NEW Maserati GranTurismo Folgore – £200k, 750bhp All-Electric GT Car Tested | Top Gear
Dec 04 2022
This is the new GranTurismo Folgore. When it arrives next year, finally replacing the last gen coupe that died three years ago, it’ll be the marque’s first pure EV. Folgore (it roughly translates as lightning or thunderbolt) versions of the MC20 supercar and Grecale SUV will follow soon after.



As well as this tri-motor electric, the new GranTurismo will be offered with the MC20 supercar’s twin-turbo V6 Nettuno motor – 483bhp in the entry level Modena version, 542bhp for the Trofeo. Chicken feed. The electric one develops 750bhp, all of which can go to any of the motors. The rear pair for max acceleration, or divvied up for complex torque vectoring stuff through corners.



There’s 93kWh battery on board and range is quoted at 280 miles on the WLTP cycle, which is good for a fast car that weighs 2,260kg. Petrols are likely to be around the £150k mark, this Folgore closer to £200,000.



Top Gear Magazine’s Head of Car Testing, Ollie Marriage, got behind the wheel on track to tell us all about it.
