Exterior

The visual appearance of the car has been inspired by the MC Stradale. The new design is not just aimed at creating an eye-catching profile, but also enhances the aerodynamic performance of the car. The front now has four large air intakes. Two direct the airflow over the engine, while the other two channel air to the front brakes to provide more efficient cooling.

The rear spoiler is finished in the same color as the body in the standard production car. An optional version is available with a carbon finish.

Interior

The interior receives many changes from previous models. All the seats have been redesigned to improve ergonomics as well as appearance and comfort levels. Being a convertible, space in the rear seats is limited, but Maserati have redesigned the front seat frames to give an extra .79 inches legroom in the rear.

Transmission

The six-speed, automatic ZF transmission can be operated fully automatically or used in manual mode. The transmission has a total of five selectable operating modes to suit all types of driving.

Four of these allow for normal or sport driving in either automatic or manual mode. The fifth operating mode is for driving in icy or slippery conditions.

Features

The 2013 Maserati GranCabrio MC has been built to improve safety and comfort without compromising on the sport qualities of the car. The car is fitted with the company's Dual Cast braking system.

To reduce weight and improve rigidity, the monococque chassis is built from a combination of aluminum, high strength steel and composites.
