Maserati GranSport Trofeo

Italian Cars - May 18

Maserati has announced it will participate in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring on June 17 with a GranSport Laboratorio and a GranSport Trofeo. The cars will compete in the DMSB E1XP and the 24-Hour Special.

The GranSport Laboratorio is based on the GranSport GT3 and features modifications developed by the Maserati R&D factory team. The GranSport Trofeo is derived from the model that competes in the Trofeo Maserati Audemars Piguet Europe.

The company says small modifications have been made to prep the Trofeo for an endurance race, including a beefed-up suspension as well as a modified fuel supply and refueling system. Both vehicles will be outfitted with Pirelli tires.
