2004 / 2007
The GranSport was presented at the Geneva Motor Show to great acclaim. Its design was based on a new version of the coupé’s V8 engine, tuned to develop 400 bhp.

A new sports exhaust system (immediately recognisable by its chrome twin pipes) was designed to give the engine a deep, intense purr.
