The perfect choice for those in search of that wind-in-your-hair sensation combined with the excitement of finely-tuned, sports-car handling comes in the new Maserati Gran Cabrio Sport. Two years after the debut of Gran Cabrio at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, Maserati will use the 2011 Geneva Motor Show to introduce the new Sport version, which will go on sale from the summer.
Conceived to give the GranCabrio a harder-edged model to sit alongside the GranTurismo S and the Quattroporte Sport GT S, the Maserati GranCabrio Sport uses a more powerful and fuel-efficient version of Maserati’s, all-alloy 4.7-litre V8, coupled with the ZF six-speed automatic transmission. This naturally aspirated engine produces in this configuration 331 kW (450 horsepower) and has 510 Nm at the peak of its rich, thick torque curve. The top speed of the Maserati GranCabrio Sport is 285 km/h.
Outward design Gran Caprio Sport features a black grille and a Trident with red accents, and also black look for the headlights with white sidemarks. The front splitters and redesigned side skirts are both body coloured.
The Maserati GranCabrio Sport also debuts a new body colour for Maserati: Rosso Trionfale inspired by the red Italian national colours used on 1950s racing Maseratis – in 1957, Juan Manuel Fangio won his fifth F1 World Title at the wheel of a red Maserati 250F.
Like the manufacturer says: A stunning model, concealing an aggressive, high-performance soul beneath an inimitably elegant appearance. A unique car, for a total driving experience.
