Oh, but the Maserati GranTurismo Convertible Sport is a beautiful thing. In Europe, they call it the GranCabrio Sport, but Americans seem to prefer things spelled out in full. The company says this new Sport variant has sharper responses in the way the more powerful 4.7-liter V8 behaves, along with shortened gearshift times and a revised adaptive air suspension. The GTCS retains the 444 horsepower of the non-Sport version, but enjoys another 15 lb-ft of torque, pushing the total to 376. Yet fuel consumption is down by six percent, thanks to a friction reduction program. The Sport also wears a blacked-out grille and debuts a new color, Rosso Trionfale, a tribute to the company’s 1950s-era racers. It reaches the States this August, with a modest increase in price over the GT Convertible’s $136,300
