The GranCabrio (GranTurismo Convertible in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) is a convertible version of the GranTurismo S Automatic, equipped with a canvas folding roof. The GranCabrio retains the four seat configuration of the GranTurismo coupé, and is thus Maserati's first ever four-seater convertible.
The vehicle was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, with production beginning in 2010. The vehicle is built in the Viale Ciro Menotti Maserati factory. European sales were to begin in February 2010, with the United States receiving its first cars a month later. Planned sales for 2010 were 2,100 units, of which two thirds were intended to go stateside.
The GranCabrio is powered by the same 4.7-litre V8 engine (440 PS or 324 kW or 434 bhp at 7,000 rpm, 490 N·m or 361 lb·ft at 4,750 rpm) that is fitted to the GranTurismo S Automatic.
