Officially unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show earlier this year, the Pininfarina designed four seater convertible uses Maserati’s all-alloy 4.7-litre V8 naturally aspirated engine that produces 450 HP and a maximum torque of 510Nm at 4,750 rpm.
The unit is coupled with a ZF six-speed automatic transmission with MC Auto Shift software, allowing the GranCabrio Sport to reach a top speed of 285 km/h (177 mph) and a 0-100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) sprint of 5.2 seconds.
Other highlights include a black grille featuring a Trident with red accents to the black look headlights with white sidemarks, black oval exhaust tips and 20” Astro-design wheels. The look is carried over inside the cabin with newly designed seats and driver-focused contents such as longer Trofeo-design gear-shift paddles and drilled aluminium pedals.
The GranCabrio Sport also features a new body colour: Rosso Trionfale, a rich metallic red inspired by the Italian national colour used on 1950s racing Maseratis. Inside the cabin, two new leather colors are available for the new M-design seats, so that customers can choose from: Bianco Pregiato (ivory) and Grigio Chrono (grey).
