Car reviews - Maserati - GranCabrio - convertible


Maserati has served up its first four-seat cabrio, and it is gran bellisimo ...

29 Jun 2010

MASERATI says its third distinct model, the new GranCabrio convertible, is much more than a soft-topped version of its scintillating GranTurismo coupe. Backing the claim are extensive body strengthening measures that add just 100kg, cabrio-specific audio and climate-control systems and unique safety systems including twin pop-up rear rollover hoops and new seat-mounted side/thorax airbags. There’s no shame in admitting the four-seater GranCabrio, which is leagues ahead of the decade-old two-seater Spyder models it belatedly replaces, is in fact a Spyder version of the GranTurismo, because the GT is an accomplished two-door flagship for the historic Italian sportscar marque. It’s not cheap at $338,000, but a relatively slender $20K premium over the equivalent 4.7-litre GranTurismo S coupe is icing on one of the sexiest, exclusive treats in motoring.

THE last Maserati convertible available in Australia was the Gransport Spyder sold here for two years from March 2006. Powered by a 295kW version of the 4.2-litre V8 that powered the original 287kW Spyder, launched in Australia in late 2001, the Gransport Spyder also came with more aggressive styling, reworked suspension and 19-inch wheels and tyres. Fitted a standard with Maserati’s CambioCorsa semi-automatic transmission, it was priced at $260,000.
