Another welcomed unveiling from the Paris International Motor Show is Maserati’s GranCabrio MC. If you’re familiar with the GranTurismo MC Stradale, the GranCabrio is literally the same car, minus a roof and plus two seats.

It carries the same aggressive and lengthy front end, giving this drop top a truly stunning look.

We won’t lie, we don’t really like convertibles. Roadsters have a special place in our heart, they seem to pull off roofless proportions much better, but every so often a true convertible is released and actually works. This is undoubtably one of those occasions.

The GranCabrio MC has the same running gear as the Stradale, utilizing Maserati’s 4.7-liter V8 making a not-so-svelte 460hp and 384 lb-ft. And you can bet your left arm it’ll sound amazing, because if there’s one thing the Trident brand is consistent for, it’s producing a perfect exhaust note.

With the V8 mustering up all it has, the GranCrabrio hustles to 62mph in under 4 sec, and with the soft top closed it tops out at 179mph, but 160 with 4 people and the roof down sounds like more fun.
