MASERATI GRANCABRIO SPORT
Vehicle type: Sports car. Timing: January
Maserati’s meanest convertible will get the New Year off to a hot start for the Italian sports car manufacturer in Australia. Sitting at the pinnacle of Maserati’s line-up alongside the GranTurismo S and the Quattroporte Sport GTS, the GranCabrio Sport gets a slightly more powerful tune of the standard convertible’s 4.7-litre V8 engine – 331kW of power and 510Nm of torque – leading to a higher top speed of 285km/h. The uprated mechanical package includes the MC Auto Shift ZF six-speed automatic transmission, Skyhook active suspension, and ventilated and cross-drilled brakes, while the exterior sports a unique black grille, smoky light lenses, redesigned bumpers and red highlights on the trident badge. Prices will be announced in January. Expect the Maserati GranCabrio Sport to start above $350,000.
