With stunning looks, fantastic performance and hi-spec equipment, the new Grancabrio convertible from Maserati shows the very best of what the Italian manufacturer is capable of.
Even a quick, cursory glance is enough to tell you that the Grancabrio is unmistakeably Maserati, even before you see the famous Trident badge. It's simply a stunning car to look at, and one that is sure to bring plenty of admiring looks as you cruise past with the roof down. The wide, sunken grille, angled headlights and gaping vents are the show-stoppers at the front, whilst clean-cut lines, triple air intakes and 20-inch alloy wheels cement the Grancabrio’s status as a modern style icon.
Maserati makes an effort to give all of its drivers an experience on the road that is both uniformly excellent and personal to them. That's why the steering wheel, seats and overall driving position in the Maserati Grancabrio can be adjusted and customised electrically, whilst the interior is decked out in the finest leathers. There is also a selection of woods to choose from for the rear side panels and dashboard, and you can even choose to have a wooden-rimmed steering wheel for extra tactile luxury.
The new Maserati Grancabrio comes equipped with a single choice of engine, a 4.7-litre V8 petrol. A stickler for quality above all else, Maserati has chosen well with the turbo charged V8, as it offers a huge 434bhp and can travel from 0-60mph in under 4.8 seconds. The Grancabrio also comes equipped with Maserati's ZF six-speed gearbox, which uses a hydraulic torque converter to guarantee a smooth ride at all times without sacrificing performance.
Safety is an area that Maserati takes very seriously, and the Grancabrio is no exception. As well as a full complement of airbags, the Grancabrio features various driving-enhancement systems such as ABS and ESP to increase stability. There's also a selection of driving settings on offer, with one specifically designed soften the power in order to help you deal with icy conditions and prevent a potential accident in bad weather.
The Maserati Grancabrio also comes with a vehicle-tracking system that boasts driver recognition, whilst an immobiliser and remote inhibitor will help to keep it safe from thieves.
