Maserati Gran Turismo S
Today we celebrate the introduction of a new Italian car brand to our stables: Maserati
About this creation
A bit of history at first...

Maserati was founded in 1914 in the town of Bologna, making it the oldest Italian brand in our stables so far. 95 years are quite a long time and it isn't a big surprise to see some ups and downs. Being at the brink of bankruptcy for several times and various ownerships (Citroën, De Tomaso and Fiat Group) took turns with success at races like the Targa Florio and the 1957 Formula 1 world championship by the legendary Juan-Manuel Fangio.

The Italian car giant Fiat Auto acquired Maserati in 1993. Inside this group, Maserati was associated with it's former arch-rival Ferrari at first and merged with Alfa Romeo in 2005.

The cooperation with Ferrari and a range of successfully selling cars brought Maserati back in the blacks; the growing self-esteem reflects in their slogan...

Maserati: luxury, sports and style cast in exclusive cars







A new star is born

The long-awaited successor to the aging 3200GT / Coupé / V8 GranSport family debuted at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show. Pininfarina designed a 2+2 coupé with beautiful lines, an agressive front and a ...sexy? rear. The new Gran Turismo combines luxury and the usability of a daily-driver with brutal sports car performances: the 4,2 liter V-8 - developed in cooperation with Ferrari - pushes the 2,2 tons of Italian craftsmanship with an equivalent of 405 horses to a topspeed of 285 kph. The sprint from 0-60 mph takes 5,2 seconds.


"S" like sneakers?

Actually the "S" stands for "sportive"...that means Maserati made the sporty standard even sportier in this version. A six speed, electro-actuated flappy-paddle gearbox and the "MC-shift" software allow gearchanges in 100 milliseconds. The suspension setup was stiffened by 10% and the engine displacement was increased to 4,7 liters, resulting in 440 hp overall. The speedometer pointer stops at 295 kph and 0-60 mph now takes 4,9 seconds.


The Gran Turismo S made it's debut at Geneva Auto Show one year after the standard version.


The model

Side view. Note the "chromed" trimline around the windows. Yes, I cut the hubcaps... interesting effect, right?




Front view with the unmistakable grille (Ooops, just noticed the crooked jumperplate)





Unfortunately I had to use stickers for the white part of the rear lights.





Details. Certainly the grille features the the "Tridente", the company's famous emblem.






Three tiny ducts to cool the brakes and engine. Well, I used stickers again...but see how the chrome lines add to the overall look.



All opened



Trunk, doors and hood are openable.





A spacious trunk and tricky SNOT work on the rear lights.



Interior

Passenger's side.



Driver's side. Roof was obviously removed to show you the details.



Note the speakers in door linings and behind the headrests.



Customized stickers for the center console including multimedia & GPS.



Unfortunately you cannot tilt the front seats to have access to the back seats, but...



...you have an openable glove box and four cupholders.



Engine



Enough said about this...





Wallpaper



That's it. I hope you enjoyed the tour and comment and discuss about it.

I saw 3 at the Maserati dealership in Raleigh, N.C. and this is unmistakably a very precise replica.

Whoa! This is my third favorite car. The only problem is I think it would look MUCH better in navy blue.

Every Maserati Firm should have one of these showcased for potential buyers; it signifies how beautiful their designs are, no matter if it's real or Lego.

The gods of italian cars did another masterpiece! It is hard to believe that it is actually made from LEGOs, but it is! You use stickers only where necessary and not because you are to lazy to think of a brick solution! Awesome!

Great work. Here you illustrate the GOOD use of stickers. Unlike Lego company, who would make a whole car made of stickers.

I may be wrong, but I see a lot common with Firas's work. Either you are as good builder as he is, either you learned from him the best techniques.. Congrats on awsome car!!

  November 7, 2009
when I saw this on your homepage, I was shocked. How can you build that car so realistic with Lego. It still amaze me. This is the best Maserati ever made and it is as good as Firas. The wheels are great, the rear lights are very good and hard to build.

Although I had seen this on your homepage, but still, it amazes me every time. What a brilliant way of building the head light! Every bits looks so good and you know? I always impressed by the way you build the engine!Well, any chance to see a GranCabrio? :D Cheers -Kin

Great job on a *very* difficult car. Partsof the shape aren't perfect, but it's probably the best possible with LEGO bricks. Amazing work, 5 stars
