Maserati GranCabrio

The GranCabrio is the first convertible Maserati for several years since the Spyder was shelved. It is a bigger, less sporting car than its predecessor but that’s no bad thing as the design as a whole seems to have more purpose. Rather than being a cut-down Ferrari it is a grand touring car in the traditional sense. It will effortlessly soak up the miles at very high speeds with the occupants cosseted in lavish style and they won’t be disappointed when the roads become more challenging. There is also comfortable seating for 4 adults. Most impressive of all is the spine-tingling engine note. The Maserati GranCabrio has to Compete with Jaguar’s XK, the Porsche 911 and the Mercedes SL but beats them all on exclusivity, passenger space and soundtrack.

Maserati GranCabrio Sport

The Maserati GranCabrio Sport or GranTourismo Convertible Sport as it is known in the US improves on the standard car in all its weakest areas. The suspension is stiffened up without unsettling the smooth ride and the whole car feels tighter and more responsive. The steering is more direct and although the performance figures are only mildly improved the result is a car that feels much faster. It still has the smoothness that makes you feel you could cross continents in comfort but when the road gets twisty it no longer runs out of ideas. The GranCabrio Sport still isn't a track monster but it has been sharpened up in all the right ways. At a relatively small premium over the standard car it seems hard to believe that anyone would not choose the Sport. Visually there are only subtle updates keeping the Maserati's place as a more subtle (and perhaps mature?) alternative to a Ferrari at a considerably lower price.
