Based on the Maserati GranCabrio presented at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the GranCabrio Sport is a performance-oriented version that will debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and will go on sale from summer 2011.
The GranCabrio Sport is powered by a more powerful and fuel-efficient version of Maserati’s, all-alloy 4.7-litre V8, that delivers 331 kW (450 hp) and 510 Nm and is coupled with a ZF six-speed automatic transmission.
The top speed is 285 km/h, while thanks to the Friction Reduction Program the fuel consumption has been reduced by 6%.
The exterior design of the GranCabrio Sport is characterized by a more-pronounced dynamic look: the nose has a black grille and a Trident with red accents; the headlights have a black look with white sidemarks, while front corner splitters and the redesigned side skirts are both body coloured.
The new Rosso Trionfale color is inspired by the red Italian national colors used on 1950s racing Maseratis.
