The Maserati GranCabrio, the first four-seater convertible in the Trident carmaker’s history, completes their product line-up that now consists of three different families of models: Quattroporte, GranTurismo, GranCabrio. The GranCabrio represents the very essence of Maserati in terms of open-top cars. It’s a Maserati in the purest sense of the word: from the unmistakable style by Pininfarina to the spacious interior, from the craftsmanship of each detail to the driving pleasure and performance. The GranCabrio enriches all five senses in a shared open-air experience, without sacrificing comfort and performance. A dream car designed and built for men and women who love to live life in an understated – though sophisticated - manner. Like all the made by Maserati open-top convertibles: special cars aimed at refined connoisseurs.
The GranCabrio is continuing the Maserati tradition in open-top fine automobiles, beginning with the 1950 A6G Frua Spyder, and continuing through a long list of significant and thrilling open air models. However, in adding to this tradition, the GranCabrio opens a new chapter, because never before have four-seater top-down models ever been produced at the Viale Ciro Menotti Maserati factory. Four proper seats are provided, so that the rear passengers are not merely supporting actors, but co-stars of the journey. The convertible is powered by the familiar 4.7 liter V8, 433 horsepower engine while its roof is strictly canvas-made, emphasizing the link with the Maserati tradition.
The Maserati GranCabrio will be marketed this coming winter, and experienced by customers the world over from the following spring.
