The Sonus faber Natural Italian Sound continues
to push the Maserati Luxury Experience. Also, in full electric.
VICENZA, ITALY (FEBRUARY 2023) – Sonus faber is thrilled to announce the integration of its award-winning Sound system in Maserati’s new GranTurismo vehicle, a groundbreaking new product that is 100% electric, also offered in a traditional version with an internal combustion engine. Extending the winning partnership found in the sound integration of the Maserati MC20 Super Sports Car and Grecale fleet, both awarded with the EISA prize as the best in car audio system for the year, the brands remain bonded by their commitment to innovation to challenge the limits of performance. As with the previous vehicles, an all-round sound experience is guaranteed through the iconic signature sound of the Maserati engine and immersive natural sound of Sonus faber.
Developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab and produced at the Mirafiori manufacturing hub in Turin, the GranTurismo is completely made in Italy and epitomizes Italian luxury performance, a concept shared by Sonus faber and Maserati as the backbone of their partnership. Thanks to the studies that Maserati and Sonus faber did for the car cabin, the GranTurismo offers a natural surround sound experience, even in the electric version.
“For a car as iconic as GranTurismo, we decided to look at our most important technologies and tailor them for GT’s luxurious car cabin. We carefully selected the most appropriate technologies from our top in class collections to ensure clarity, performance and fatigue-free sound. In addition, the tuning process was conducted in order to maintain the same high-quality standards through precise measurements and phase coherent philosophy that returns an acoustic scenario with three- dimensional sound perception.
I’m confident that thanks to the hard work done in collaboration with Maserati team, all the GranTurismo customers will have a truly live performance experience with our distinctive Natural Sound”
— Mario Passarelli – Head of R&D
