German luxo-tuners Mansory have added another beast to an already-impressive stable that includes Bentley, Ferrari, and Aston Martin, among others. The primary focus of Mansory is not on performance but rather aesthetics, resulting in the not-so-subtle look you see here. Mansory’s prior works have always been conversation pieces, with feedback ranging from superb (“Mansory…has beaten Rolls-Royce at its own game”) to subpar (their Panamera was described by Evo as the most tastelessly modified vehicle the publication had ever seen). The Gran Tourismo, Maserati’s most masterful creation to date, has received the full treatment, with swaths of carbon fiber wrapped around the front and rear valences as well as the grille and duct trim. Planted at each corner are custom color-matched wheels, which sit a little closer to the wheel wells thanks to a lower ride height. This one-off Gran Tourismo does get a 30-horsepower bump, but we doubt that will be the first thing on people’s minds when they see it. While their may be a lot of arguments about the true beauty of such a vehicle, it’s tough to dispute the craftsmanship from Mansory.
