2010 Maserati GranTurismo S Automatica debuts at 2009 Geneva Motor Show.

Holding true to its promise to launch a new model at each major, international auto show, Maserati plans to pull the wraps off its new GranTurismo S Automatic at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

An automatic gearbox has been offered before on the sports car, but only with a downsized, 4.2-liter V-8. Now, the coupe will get the bigger 4.7-liter eight-banger, making a hefty 433 horsepower, and 362 pound-feet of torque. The new six-speed is provided by Germany’s ZF.
