2013 Maserati GranCabrio Sport
(from Maserati Press
Release) GranCabrio Sport
Already one of the most
highly regarded in the world of sports cars, the GranCabrio Sportís
bodywork has undergone a restyling which skilfully harmonises the
characteristics of the GranTurismo Sport.
The steering wheel, with new design, is now more ergonomic and, in combination with the extended Trofeo-design paddles and light aluminium pedals, is better suited to sports driving thanks to a flattened rim and accentuated grip profile.
The new grey EcoChrome materials for the interiors and the Poltrona Frau leather upholstery complete the existing characteristics, such as the steering wheel transmission paddles and the aluminium pedals.
The GranCabrio Sport,
which comes with a modern V8 engine that has already become a
classic, adopts the most recent innovations in the field of
engineering to deliver greater power and torque.
At 7,000 rpm, the GranCabrio Sport delivers 338 kW (460 HP) with a considerable torque of 520 Nm at 4,750 rpm.
Automatic transmission (MC Auto Shift)
The automatic six-speed ZF transmission with MC Auto Shift is perfectly capable of handling the exceptional performance of the powerful V8 and derives from the transmission of the GranTurismo Sport. The automatic transmission is connected directly to the rear of the engine and transmits the torque to the same limited-slip differential through a two-piece articulated steel crankshaft.
The GranCabrio Sport with MC Auto Shift transmission can reach 100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds. Top speed is 285 km/h.
Chassis and suspension
The GranCabrio Sport was designed to combine peerless driving comfort for all occupants with optimum handling at high speeds.
Exceptional performance and road holding, as well as the handling of a great sports car, are qualities of the GranCabrio Sport that few other sports convertibles can boast.
This is thanks to the shock absorbers with Sport Skyhook system, the most recent development of the Maserati damping control system. The Sport Skyhook system constantly adjusts the GranCabrio Sportís shock absorbers, adapting them to the road conditions. With the aid of a new rear anti-roll bar which is 12% more rigid, the Sport Skyhook system allows the vertical rigidity of the GranCabrio Sport to be increased by 10% in Sport mode.
