I've spent a bit of time in the cockpit of the GranTurismo and it's not hugely different in quality to the Brera imho, it was actually a bit disappointing because I expected better, I also couldn't get over how big it felt from the drivers seat, I know it's as big as my Jag but it 'feels' bigger, the interior design also has a chunky vulgarity that I don't think comes across in pictures.
That's said it was a black on black car with plastic silver trim (mirroring exactly my old Brera), there may be more luxurious options.
I had a good length of time sat in a Ghibli at the same time and that was VERY nice, certainly a step up from the GT, the wood grain on the center console and cubbies was deep and it felt very special inside. Seats were a bit hard though.
I preferred the interior of the Aston Vantage V12 S over the Maserati, I also looked at a Porsche Cayman S (new) and the interior in that is fantastic, very tactile and so solid, feels like it's been hewn from one piece of material.
