This naturally aspirated 4961cc engine produces in the new GranCabrio Sport configuration 450 hp at 7000 rpm (compared to 440 bhp for the current model which now slots into the range underneath) while it has peak torque of 510 Nm at 4750 rpm (up from 490 bhp). Maserati's Friction Reduction Program has made the GranCabrio Sport's engine more reactive to the driver's most-nuanced inputs, while reaching a 6 percent reduction in fuel consumption. The top speed of the GranCabrio Sport is 285 km/h, up fractionally from 283 km/h for the base GranCabrio while the 0-100 km/h time ...
