The facelifted 2018 Maserati GranCabrio and GranTurismo twins have been fully unveiled this week for the Goodwood Festival of Speed, giving us a proper look at the exterior and interior revisions for the Italian company’s four-seater sports car.
Following the GranTurismo’s debut in New York earlier in the week – albeit with no official images of the interior or the rear end – its drop-top GranCabrio sibling has also been revealed, along with the first images of the vehicle’s revised interior.
As previously reported, the headlining change is the addition of a new 8.4-inch touchscreen central infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions, along with a redesigned centre console with fewer buttons.

Like the coupe, the GranCabrio comes in both Sport and MC trims, while the new lower air ducts on the convertible reduces aerodynamic drag from 0.35 to 0.33 – the GranTurismo’s figure drops from 0.33 to 0.32.
Maserati has also announced that Italian designer brand, Bulgari, has designed a special ‘Exclusive Edition’ owner’s watch, which will be presented to every Maserati customer who orders a GranCabrio or GranTurismo during the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.
Performance figures for the updated GranCabrio are yet to be released, though the same 4.7-litre V8 resides under the bonnet, developing 343kW of power at 7000rpm, and 520Nm of torque 4750rpm. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed ZF-sourced automatic transmission.

Local pricing and specifications for the updated GranCabrio and GranTurismo range will be announced early in 2018, when the new coupe and cabriolet arrive on Australian and New Zealand shores.
