Concept to Reality: Maserati GranTurismo Folgore

In Concept to Reality, we explore the story behind the design of the latest electric vehicles to come from the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship stable. That prototype would evolve a year later into the new Maserati GranTurismo Folgore, a fully-electric grand tourer with supercar performance from its three 300kW motors. With a firm understanding of the formula behind some of Maserati’s most successful road cars, the designer set about redefining the marque’s design language for the electric age. They were cars you could drive to the racetrack, race it and then drive home again. That concept did not exist before either you had a race car or road car. So this racing class was the first class to combine the two, spawning Grand Turismo road cars like the A6 1500.
