This is the new Maserati GranTurismo Folgore, and it's a Maserati grand tourer like no other, because it's fully electric.

Yup, the GranTurismo coupe is back, and it looks as glorious as ever it did. It'll be available with a V6 in two states of tune or, intriguingly, as here, with three electric motors. And between them they make quite a lot of power.

The GranTurismo Folgore's peak power output is some 751bhp, which is enough to take this 2260kg kerbweight Maserati from 0-62mph in 2.7sec and give it a 199mph top speed.

The battery is big: the Folgore has an 83kWh usable battery, which can charge at up to 270kW. Range is predicted to be 280 miles or thereabouts when the car goes on sale late summer 2023. In the UK, the Folgore will cost close to £200,000.

Join Matt Prior as he tests this prototype on a race track in Italy, in some dismal conditions. And stay tuned for more updates on the GranTurismo, including reviews of the finished article - with electric or internal combusted power.
