When passion meets freedom the outcome is inevitably unique: as the brand’s first convertible to seat four in comfort, the Maserati GranCabrio is the start of a major new chapter in its history. Inspired by the example of the GranTurismo, a perfect blend of modernity, sensuality and passion, the car’s profile is dynamic yet elegant.
The most distinctive feature of the exterior is the fabric soft-top: a highly sophisticated stylistic and technological choice which ensures that the Maserati convertible is firmly in keeping with tradition. Thanks to the carefully selected materials, the soft-top and its operating system make no significant difference to the weight of the car despite the large sizes needed to cover such a roomy interior.
The six-speed ZF automatic gearbox with hydraulic torque converter provides extremely smooth gear shifts, improving the ride without detracting from the sporty power of the V8 engine. There are four operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Auto ICE and Manual. In Manual mode, the gears are selected directly by the driver in sequence using the gear lever or the steering-wheel paddles.
The car’s already excellent handling is monitored by the Maserati Stability Program electronic stability control system, which corrects any hint of side-skidding by reducing the engine torque. Incorporating the ABS and EBD, the system also prevents wheel lock during braking and, last but not least, stops both wheel spin during acceleration and locking of the drive wheels during down-shifts on low-grip road surfaces.
