Maserati GranCabrio Sport

Maserati’s GranCabrio (GranTurismo Convertible to us Yanks) was introtuced almost two years ago, and the folks in Modena weren’t satisfied with just one variation of the breed.  In order to cater to the more performance-oriented of their clients, they unveiled their new GranCabrio Sport at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. 

Separation between the Sport and standard versions of the GranTurismo Convertible are definitely the type that the enthusiast buyer will appreciate – more power from the 4.7L V8 (up to 440hp), a recalibrated Skyhook suspension system optimised for more grip and sharper handling, upgraded MC Shift transmission programming, and improved braking performance courtesy of drilled and slotted brake rotors. 

Maserati knew the car had to look fast, too, so the exterior of the car shows a host of changes from the standard car.  Most obvious is the new Rosso Trionfale paint work, which Maserati says underlines the car’s “athletic soul.”  Also new are the 20″ Astro-design wheels (available in two finishes), headlamps with white turn indicators, and shadowline body trim that replaces the previous chrome accents.  Two new colors of leather are also available to accent the new front seats. 

Head on over to Maserati’s new minisite to get all of the info.
