The Maserati GranCabrio, the first four-seater convertible in the carmaker's history, will make its world debut on September 15 at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The introduction of the GranCabrio completes Maserati's product line-up that now consists of three different families of models: Quattroporte, GranTurismo, GranCabrio.
The GranCabrio represents the essence of Maserati in terms of open-top cars. It's a Maserati in the purest sense of the word: from the unmistakable style by Pininfarina to the spacious interior, from the craftsmanship of each detail to the driving pleasure and performance.
The GranCabrio is continuing the Maserati tradition of open-top cars, joining models that played such an important part in the Modena carmaker's history such as the 1950 A6G Frua Spyder, 1960 3500GT Vignale Spyder, 1964 Mistral Spyder, 1968 Ghibli Spyder and 2001 Spyder designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the car that marked Maserati's return to the United States.
In the footsteps of tradition, the GranCabrio opens a new chapter, because never before have four-seater top-down models ever been produced at the Viale Ciro Menotti Maserati factory.
The GranCabrio is powered by a 430hp 4.7 liter V8 engine and is the convertible with the longest wheelbase on the market. The GranCabrio's roof is canvas-made, emphasizing the link with the Maserati tradition.
The Maserati GranCabrio will be marketed in the winter, and experienced by customers around the world in the following spring.
