Engine

The GranCabrio comes with a naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V8 engine that generates 460 horsepower and a torque of 384 pounds-feet. The state of the art engine incorporates the latest technological developments in building techniques and software for electronic control.

When the 'Speed' button is pressed, the powerful engine accelerates the car from zero to 60 in just 4.8 seconds, with a top speed of 185 mph.

Exterior

The front bumper has been redesigned and gives a clear profile of speed and power. It helps improve road handling, and directs the airflow around the front brakes to provide additional cooling. The lighting units retain their shape from the previous model but an all-new LED system is now used for the daytime running lights.

At the rear, the taillights are now less wide, and are covered in a darker color. The appearance of the car when seen from the rear also conveys the sportiness of the car, with the rear diffuser having integrated twin exhausts in black.

Interior

New ergonomic design features have been used on the inside for both front and rear seats. The steering wheel has also been given a new design, with a flattened rim, giving a better grip for sports driving.

The 2013 Maserati GranCabrio Sport designers have replaced the wood inlays and wood trim with carbon fiber pieces.

Transmission

The six-speed, automatic transmission is based on that used in the GranTurismo. Torque is transmitted to the limited slip differential via a steel crankshaft.
