Maserati GranTurismo Convertible

    The new Maserati GranTurismo Convertible (www.maserati.us)—the first four-seat convertible in the company’s nearly 100-year history—is a brilliant adaptation of the GranTurismo coupe, sacrificing nothing in translation but the hard top. In fact, its canvas top, which may be the most elegantly integrated of any convertible, preserves the glorious Pininfarina profile of the GT while offering all the excitement and style that matters to top-down drivers. This is an imposing—and long—car, with a wheelbase that offers ample room for rear-seat passengers and a comfortable ride worthy of any true GT. But when driving is the order of the day, the convertible delivers like its stablemate. Though not as sports-oriented as the S Automatic, the convertible shares that car’s 4.7-liter V-8 engine and benefits from a specially tuned exhaust that, when engaged in Sport mode, produces a note more seductive than any the Sirens might have sung. As with other Maseratis, this car can be specified according to the owner’s personal taste, making this already rare sight even rarer.
