The Gransport is an upgraded sports model of their 4200GT. Breaking a 20-year cycle of twin-turbocharged induction approach to their engines, Maserati installed a beautiful sounding naturally-aspirated 4.2L Ferrari/Maserati F136 R V8 with tuning upgrades primarily on the exhaust and intake manifolds. The Gransport also features improved aerodynamics, retuned suspension, transmission, and a sportier interior with carbon fibre in some areas.

Recent Buyer Review – Simon Welsh on 1st May “Found my ideal 90’s sports car on Trade Classics. Living in Bournemouth and the car being in the Midlands I relied heavily on the advert, photos and videos.
On picking the car up I wasn’t disappointed. Everything was as it had been described. So I got straight into it and drove home. What a drive put a smile on my face.
Thanks very much Trade Classics and I’m now looking out for my next classic to add to the collection.”.

The car has enjoyed a mostly garaged life with Mr Lee after being imported to the UK from Hong Kong in 2017. Mr Lee has a passion for for all cars but is realising he does not have as much parking space as before, hence putting this beautiful car up for sale.
This leads to the fact that the car has been kept in excellent condition after being maintained meticulously with established specialists in Hong Kong. Having a number of cars in Matin’s ownership, he is looking to offload this beautiful Italian car that will give a new owner an exciting driving experience.
Mr Lee will provide the car with a fresh MOT before the purchase is completed.
The Blu Mediterraneo exterior of this car presents itself nicely with the rich blue paintwork. This proves to be a true testament to the superb level of care and attention that this vehicle has had throughout its life. This has true Italian style that only they themselves could accomplish. It’s a true head-turner, with its Giugiaro penned lines and aggressive stance, giving everyone an eyeful as the Maserati drives past.
Wheels & Tyres
The car is fitted with excellent condition Maserati wheels that contrast beautifully with the paintwork. The car sits on Michelin’s Pilot Super Sport tyres that maintain excellent condition tread that are 2 years old with profiles of 235/35/19.
The car maintains excellent condition across the exterior with no signs of bumps. Frank Stephenson, as newly appointed Director of Ferrari-Maserati Concept Design and Development, provided the car with a refreshment of design with improvements in aerodynamics.
The Blu Mediterraneo paint is even across the car and looks beautiful on a sunny day, please watch our ‘Exterior Review’ video. There is a small area where the lacquer has come off on the nearside door panel below the window’s trim.
Glass and Trim
The glass is in excellent condition whilst the trim has some changes in colour that can be remedied by the new owner.
The interior is really beautiful – having been luxuriously refurbished from its 4200GT counterpart. Mixing navy leather with dark navy alcantara inserts, along with tasteful carbon fibre additions, the team accomplished a perfect blend of comfort and a sense of excitement as you sit yourself in the driver’s seat. Please watch the ‘Interior Review’ video as Mr Lee let’s us take a look into the Italian luxury of the car.
Seats and Carpets
The leather seats are in good condition and truly reflect the low 25,000 miles that it has covered. They are electrically operated, which allows the driver to find the perfect driving position for any journey.
The leather dashboard maintains excellent condition with all controls in ergonomic reach of the driver.
Steering Wheel / Paddle Shift
Both are in excellent condition with no issues. The Carbon fibre inlays on the steering wheel alerts the driver that what they are driving is a thoroughbred Italian supercar.
This car is a true thoroughbred Italian sports car with supercar features with incredible character. As we can see by the photos, videos and history that documents the repairs and maintenance on the car, we can tell that this is a superb example the new owner can enjoy right away. Please watch our ‘Engine Review’ video as Mr Lee films himself starting the car after some time sitting cold in the garage.
Engine and Gearbox
The Ferrari F136 engine has impressive statistics. With 395hp at 7,000 rpm and a top speed of 180mph that accelerates 0-60 in just 4.8 seconds. As you can see in the video the car starts with a resonant growl that then precedes into smooth tick-over.
Suspension and Brakes
The brakes seem to have been maintained well judging by the photos whilst we are assured that the suspension is healthy and does not cause any unwanted noise whilst driving.
The F1 style six-speed Cambiocorsa paddle-shift transmission proves to be a great companion for the engine, its changes are precise and crisp as you shift through the gears and enjoy the orchestra of V8 exhaust note from idle to the very top of the rev limiter.
Electrics and Other
All lights on the exterior and dashboard seem to be working well. Mr Lee shows us that the electronic seats function well in the ‘Interior Review’ video.
A car of this stature must be meticulously maintained with no expense spared. This car enjoyed a pampered life in Hong Kong, boasting full service history in its ownership with the previous owner, before being serviced at the highly-established Autoficcina upon shipping.
Over in the UK, the car enjoys a garaged life. Having been in Asia for 11 years before import in 2017, the car enjoyed a warm climate, assuring the lack of rust or paint blisters typically seen on many UK cars.
The current indicated mileage is circa 25,000 miles (39,000km).
HPi Check Results
– HPi clear – a new HPi check will be actioned and supplied by us.
Overall, there is not a better car to buy that offers style, performance and comfort for this price. You’d be hard-pressed to find imperfections with it.
It’s a thoroughbred Italian supercar penned by the legendary design house Giugiaro that was later refined by Maserati & Ferrari themselves and paired with such a legendary engine, one would be very persuaded to take up such a good opportunity.
