New Maserati GranCabrio at Frankfurt International Auto Show

The open-top GranCabrio is pure Maserati with an unmistakable Pininfarina design, spacious interior, handcrafted details, driving pleasure and high performances. The Maserati GranCabrio touches all five senses in an open-air experience that retains all the typical comfort and performance brio. Like all Maserati’s open-top models, the GranCabrio is a special car intended for true connoisseurs. It is powered by a 4.7 liter V8 engine paired with the fluid 6-speed automatic transmission. In Sport mode, the V8 gives the driver and passengers the full power of its 323kW, with a thrilling roar that becomes even more exciting with the top down, as it becomes one with its surroundings.

The CEO of Maserati, Mr Harald J. Wester, gave a speech focusing on the debut of the GranCabrio. He called it the third prong of the Maserati Trident, saying it is a unique alchemy between the car, the all-around Maserati driving emotion and its surroundings. The GranCabrio presents an enhanced sensation of driving combined with two signature traits of Maserati, craftsmanship and technology. During his talk, Mr Wester also introduced the Maserati GranTurismo MC Trofeo model that will be the star of the Maserati Trofeo mono-marque racing series.
