Experience 542 HP of Roofless Fun with the 2024 Maserati GranCabrio!

GranTurismo: Same Love, No Roof.

Finally, after much anticipation, the convertible version of the Maserati GranTurismo has arrived. Introducing the GranCabrio, set to be released this summer in Trofeo edition and capable of accelerating from darkness to sunlight in just 13.9 seconds.The long-awaited open-air iteration of the Maserati GranTurismo has finally made its debut. Welcome the GranCabrio, which will hit the market this summer in its powerful Trofeo model, boasting a remarkable 13.9-second journey from shadow to sunlight.

It takes the GranCabrio a mere few seconds to release its canvas roof, making it possible to do so while driving at up to 31 mph. However, if you get caught in an unexpected shower, it will take approximately 14.1 seconds to raise the roof and shield yourself from the rain. Unlike other convertible vehicles that only come in a limited range of colors, Maserati offers a variety of shades for their soft-top, including blue, dark red, black, and two different hues of gray. These options can be paired with six exterior colors: Nero Assoluto, Blu Modena, Bianco Astro, Grigio Incognito, Grigio Maratea Matte, and a metallic green color that has not been specified.

The GranCabrio is not a vehicle that you purchase solely to admire from the outside, especially with the roof up. In order to control the roof, the driver can use the car’s touchscreen and make gestures to the left or right. Additionally, the front seat occupants can enjoy the added convenience of a standard neck warmer, perfect for cooler weather. With three adjustable speeds, warm air is blown directly from the seats to keep everyone comfortable. For those seeking a calmer ride, there is the option of a wind stopper that can be manually installed behind the front seats. While this reduces turbulence for those in the front, it essentially renders the back seat unusable for passengers.

In terms of mechanics, the GranCabrio closely resembles its hard-top counterpart, the Trofeo. This means that it boasts an impressive 542 horsepower from its 3.0-liter “Nettuno” V6 engine, which is equipped with twin-turbochargers. The power is distributed to all four wheels through an eight-speed transmission. However, due to the added weight of the convertible top, the GranCabrio’s performance numbers are slightly lower. Nevertheless, this is still an incredibly fast machine. Step on the gas and you’ll hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.6 seconds. Keep your foot down and you’ll see the speedometer climb all the way to 196 mph, only 3 mph shy of its fixed-roof counterpart.

The cabin design remains unchanged, featuring a 12.3-inch central infotainment screen that seamlessly integrates with an additional 8.8-inch display specifically for controlling functions such as climate control. A 12.2-inch instrument panel allows the driver to closely monitor the vehicle, and there is an abundance of advanced technology on board. This includes the Maserati Intelligent Assist system, powered by Andriod Auto, with compatibility for CarPlay still available for Apple users. The Maserati Connect feature provides various connected options for both home and car, and there is also a variety of Level 2 driver assistance features to choose from.

The upcoming 2024 Maserati GranCabrio will initially come in Trofeo model upon its release. The official pricing will be revealed closer to its launch date, expected to be during the summer of 2024 for customers in North America. However, it is not going to be a budget-friendly option. The Trofeo version of the hardtop GranTurismo begins at $190,000, suggesting a starting cost exceeding $200,000 for the GranCabrio is plausible.
