Much to the delight of trust fund playboys with cash to burn and little working knowledge of advanced driving techniques (yes, we’re bitter), Maserati announced this week that they will be unveiling the automatic gearbox variant of the GranTurismo S at the Geneva Motor Show in a few weeks. No longer limiting the automatic tranny to the less powerful end of the engine lineup, the new GranTurismo S Automatic is powered by a 4.7L V8 rated at 440 horsepower at 7000rpm and 361 lb-ft of torque (490 Nm) at 4,750rpm. Outside of the engine bay, the GranTurismo S Auto will also be immediately identifiable by model-exclusive door skirts designed to highlight the 20″ Trident-emblazoned wheels.

For fans of the windblown look, sources are reporting that Maserati will also debut the drop-top version of the GranTurismo alongside the S Automatic, though Maserati has yet to confirm the rumors.
