Maserati GranTurismo Sport

GT Sport is the best of Italian GT cars, Prichinello says. 'It is an over-exaggeration of everything a GT car should be. First off, the size of the thing. In person, it's as long as a football field, but it's that length that lets the graceful lines of the GranTurismo get bigger and bolder at the ends. The hood is long and muscular, letting you know there's a Ferrari-born engine underneath, and while it looks classically Italian and sports-minded, there's something very sinister about it. This isn't a nice man's car.'
