FOUR-SEATER CABRIO: Maserati's GranCabrio MC completes the Trident's drop-top range - for now.

Maserari has completed its open-top range with the new four-seater GranCabrio MC.

Said to be inspired by the success of the GranTurismo MC Stradale, the GranCabrioMC has a sportier look but retains its signature grand tourer characteristics that make it ideal for longer journeys.

LONGER DROP-TOP

The four-seater is 48mm longer than the GranCabrio and GranCabrio Sport and is distinguished by its Stradale-like front end. A large rear spoiler, built into the luggage compartment, holds the third brake light.   

The GranCabrio MC’s aerodynamic quotient has been increased, while there are also various car customisation packages available.

Maserati's GranCabrio MC will be debuted at the 2012 Paris auto show, starting September 27, 2012.

It is powered by Maserati's 336kW 4.7-litre V8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and has a top speed of 285km/h.
