New Maserati GranCabrio Trofeo

Maserati GranCabrio Trofeo

Maserati enthusiasts who love the thrill of open-top driving will be delighted with the brand’s latest offering: the new GranCabrio Trofeo, which is a spyder version of the award-winning GranTurismo. It was at the 1959 Geneva Motor Show that the first convertible variant of Maserati’s first road-going sports car, the 3500 GT, was unveiled.

The Maserati GranCabrio is available in the Trofeo trim level, which means that it is equipped with the 3-litre V6 Nettuno engine, fitted with twin-turbos, generating a massive 542bhp to give the car breathtaking performance.

Made entirely in Italy, the GranCabrio is an elegant grand tourer that offers performance, a touch of luxury and a comfortable yet sporty driving experience.

The folding roof is purposely made of fabric so as to take up as little space as possible when it’s stored in the boot, taking just 14 seconds to fold away, and can be activated at speeds of up to 50km/h (31mph). The car also offers plenty of space for four full sized passengers.

The car looks sleek and elegant from every angle and the roar of that powerful V6 engine gets the pulse racing, particularly when the roof is down. And that “open-air experience” is enhanced by remarkable good thermal and acoustic comfort, with the soft top being available in a choice of five colours that can be operated from the central display via the touch of a button.

The engineers at Maserati have thought of everything when it comes to personal comfort, as the GranCabrio comes with an innovative neck warmer to heat the driver and passenger’s necks at three different levels of intensity. You can also order a wind stopper as an optional extra, which can be used with two passengers and folded manually. When the top is down it reduces turbulence inside the passenger compartment and makes for an altogether more pleasant driving experience without being buffeted.

Attention to detail is paramount and technology plays an important part of the GranCabrio’s appeal, which includes top quality infotainment and driver assistance services to improve driver safety behind the wheel.

Created in parallel with the GranTurismo, the new GranCabrio is not only a beautiful and stylish classic grand tourer, but it also offers some cutting edge technology together with some best-in-class mechanics.
