Maserati GranCabrio – first Frankfurt then NZ

Maserati’s first ever four seat convertible, the Maserati GranCabrio, will make its world debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September (15 September 2009) before going sale in Australian and New Zealand in spring 2010.

Based on the Maserati GranTurismo, the GranCabrio adds a third model to the Maserati range, alongside its coupe cousin and the Maserati Quattroporte.

“The Maserati GranCabrio represents the very essence of Maserati in terms of open-top cars,” says Edward Butler, General Manager of Maserati Australia and New Zealand. “It’s a Maserati in the purest sense of the word: from the styling by Pininfarina to the spacious interior, from the craftsmanship to the performance.”

The GranCabrio continues the Maserati tradition of open-top automobiles, beginning with the 1950 A6G Frua Spyder, and continuing through a long list of open air models. However, in adding to this tradition, the GranCabrio opens a new chapter, because never before have four-seater top-down models been produced at the Maserati’s Viale Ciro Menotti factory.

The GranCabrio is powered by a 4.7 litre V8, 323 kW engine and is the convertible with the longest wheelbase on the market. The GranCabrio’s roof is strictly cloth-made, emphasizing the link with the Maserati tradition.

Prices and specifications for the new Maserati GranCabrio will be announced when it goes on sale in Australia and New Zealand in the third quarter of 2010.
