FrontRunners: Fun for Four

    The anticipated Maserati GranTurismo Convertible (www.maserati.us) comes to American shores this spring. This Italian supermodel from Modena combines exquisite Pininfarina styling with scintillating performance, courtesy of a Ferrari-engineered 4.7-liter V-8 engine and a smooth 6-?speed automatic transmission. Ample backseats with real legroom mean that a driver and three lucky passengers can tour in style; the GranTurismo is the only true four-seat convertible GT available today. The interior—swathed in Poltrona Frau leather and a choice of woods—pairs with any of six soft-top colors, making each GranTurismo Convertible a personal statement.
