What is it?
A final throw of the dice for Maserati’s venerable Grancabrio convertible, one intended to sharpen its appeal until its long-awaited replacement finally arrives. Like its Granturismo sister, the Grancabrio has been given a very mild redesign plus specification tweaks, including the arrival of a touchscreen infotainment system. The range has also been simplified to just two variants: the entry-level Sport, priced at £107,200 on-the-road and the supposedly more dynamically focused MC, whose £115,245 price tag makes it the most expensive model in Maserati’s current line-up.
Both now use the same 453hp 4.7-litre version of Maserati’s long-serving naturally aspirated V8 and drive their rear wheels through a six-speed ZF automatic gearbox; Maserati admits that moving to the more advanced eight-speeder was outside the scope of this modest facelift.
