The GranCabrio is driven by a ZF 4,691 cc V8 engine to ensure maximum performance and develops 440 hp at 7,000 rpm and 483 lb/ft torque at 4,750 rpm and mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, the GranCabrio can accelerate from 0-100 km in just 5.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 109 km/h. Drivers can also choose from 4 driving modes – Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Auto ICE and Manual.
The GranCabrio doesn’t compromise on safety and incorporates all the latest features needed to guarantee a safe ride. To ensure that all four occupants are kept extra safe, extendable telescopic roll bars behind the rear seats activate within 190 milliseconds. Handling is assisted by the Maserati Stability Programme that works alongside sensors that adjust brakes and the engine if it detects unsteadiness. Brembo brakes with four self-ventilating drilled discs ensure adequate stopping power. The mechanical handbrake has been replaced with the electric Park Brake that functions via an electronic control. The Brake Assist feature recognizes panic braking and helps shortens the stopping distance.
Unlike other convertibles that tend to focus more on the front occupants, the GranCabrio leaves no stone unturned to ensure that rear passengers can enjoy the same level of comfort. The rear side armrests feature two small lamps and two cup holders. Individual adjustable seats increase comfort by allowing rear passengers to sit back and relax. Front occupants can also enjoy adjustable seats, a seat heating system, ergonomically designed leather steering wheel and an electrically adjustable steering column.
For entertainment, occupants can enjoy the features of the Maserati Multi Media System comprising of a radio, sat nav, CD player, on-board computer and phone, and 12 quality Bose Surround Sound System speakers. Additional goodies include a garage remote control, tire pressure monitoring sensors and electro-chromic door mirrors.
The first thing to strike you is the vertical and concave black grille on the front that sports a chrome trident. At the rear, twin dual tube tailpipes and light clusters with 96 LEDs lend it a sporty look. The long bonnet matches perfectly with the reduced ground clearance, giving the GranCabrio a sleek side view.
The 20-inch wheels are available in Grigio Mercuri and Silver while hood color choices are Bianco Polare, Poltrona Frau and Blu Profondita.
Poltrona Frau leather for the interior provides a luxurious seating experience for the GranCabrio. Warm and cozy in winters and cool and comfy in summers, the cabin with its hand-crafted leather is top-of-the-line. The center of the horizontal dash houses the 7-inch display where info is projected after fiddling around with multimedia keys fitted on the steering wheel. This gives drivers a sense of total control with no need to look away from the road while adjusting the controls. And as mentioned above, front and rear passengers enjoy the same level of comfort with the rear central tunnel housing lamps and cup holders. A ‘Windstop’ screen reduces the amount of air that enters the cabin while the climate control system keeps temperatures to a comfortable level.
Maserati offers customers the chance to personalize the interior with 10 leather color options and lacquered color finishes.
Lacquer or wood finishes for the dash, rear side panels and door panels; six hood colors; two wheel rim colors.
