Autocar reader catches revealing prototype on Italian autostrada
9 July 2007

The new Maserati Spyder will have a folding hardtop, as revealed in this exclusive picture showing the car’s rear and roof undisguised for the first time. The new Spyder, spotted near Milan by an Autocar reader, is the third and final car to be built on the Quattroporte’s component set. It uses a shortened version of the platform also shared with the Gran Turismo coupe. Couple that with a space-hungry folding hardtop and the Spyder seems likely to be a strict two-seater.

Come back to on Friday 13 July for our first verdict on the new Gran Turismo coupe.
