German luxury tuner DMC has refined the Maserati Gran Turismo, naming the project Sovrano 2011 and giving it an additional 150-hp and 60 lb-ft of torque. The extra power comes thanks to a supercharger mated to the 4.7L V8, bringing peak horsepower to 590-hp and torque to 348 lb-ft.

DMC didn’t stop there though, spicing up the exterior of the Maserati with a new aggressive front bumper, front lip, and additional air inlets and outlets on the hood to cool off the supercharged V8. The side skirts receive a Lambo-esque theme while the rear gets a sporty new rear diffuser and trunk spoiler. All of the body components are manufactured in high quality, lightweight carbon fiber.

DMC is also pushing their new line of wheels featuring a concave design in a staggered 20-inch pairing in the front and 21-inch pairing in the rear. DMC also lowered the Gran Turismo by 1.2-inch, giving it a slightly more aggressive stance.

Finishing off the project are interior modifications featuring high quality leather and contrasting stitching. Aluminum pedals and a sporty steering wheel are additional add-ons.

No pricing was announced from DMC.
