All-New Maserati GranCabrio Debuts As Open Top Version Of GranTurismo

An all-new model of the Maserati GranCabrio debuts after 16 years.

It’s a little hard to accept but Maserati has been selling the previous iteration of the GranCabrio since 2007. Over the years, the model got updates and the engine displacement and power crept up with every successive upgrade. Ultimately though, the GranCabrio, like the GranTurismo was due to a major overhaul and that is finally what we got.

The new Maserati GranCabrio has arrived and it’s essentially an open-top take on the GranTurismo as was the case in the previous generation and was expected. At launch, the GranCabrio will be available in the Trofeo trim level, but it’s possible a hybrid version will be introduced with a future Folgore trim.

The GranCabrio is powered by a 3.0L twin turbo V6, the Nettuno engine. This power unit is good for 542hp and 650Nm of torque. Expect a little less outright performance versus the GranTurismo as the roof folding mechanism adds about 100kg to the mix. 0-100km/h takes 3.6 seconds and it has a top speed of 315km/h.

This all-Italian made convertible features a fabric roof that takes very little space when folded. Folding takes just 14 seconds and can be done on the move at speeds of up to 50km/h. Operation of the soft top is done via the infotainment system. It’s also worth noting that this soft top can be configured in at least five different colours including blue, red, black and two shades of grey. Colour options include:

  • Nero Assoluto
  • Blu Modena
  • Bianco Astro
  • Grigio Incognito
  • Grigio Maratea Matte

Maserati has installed neck warmers as standard and these can be adjusted to three levels of intensity. There’s also an optional “wind stopper” which is manually folded to reduce turbulence in the passenger compartment when the top is down.

Inside, expect the same sort of features as the GranTurismo including a 12.3″ infotainment system and a 8.8″ digital climate control along with a 12.2″ digital instrument cluster. No pricing details have been revealed, but you can expect it to be at least US$200,000 before duties and taxes.
