Yes, the all-new Maserati GranCabrio is sexy as hell; sexier even than, dare we say, a dressed-up, made-up, curvaceous young vixen?
Well, that’s depending on your subjectivity.
Either way, we wouldn’t mind it the least bit if we were the ones behind the wheel of the GranCabrio with that dashing diva sitting beside us, but that’s really not why this commercial struck us. This the new ad for the GranCabrio, which if you recall, made quite an impressionable debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show last September.
Check it out and tell us that you wouldn’t want to go home with this little beauty. We mean the car, not the lady - although we’d take a package deal for both.
Is not every day you get the chance to see a tuning package for the Maserati GranCabrio . But today H&R unveiled details on their updating program for the sporty convertible.
The tuner is offering a suspension set that lowers the car’s ride by approx 35 millimeters (with no modifications made to the chassis). Next to it you will also get H&R TRAK+ Wheel Spacers of high tensile aluminum.
The exotic Italian automaker Maserati unveiled a drop top version of its successful GT sports car, called the GranCabrio , at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The GranCabrio is Maserati’s first four seater convertible and has the longest wheelbase on the market will go on sale beginning in March of 2010. The GranCabrio is powered by a 4.7 Liter V8 that produces 433 HP at a screaming 7000 RPM and 362 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the high revving V8, the GrandCabrio is slated to run from 0 to 60 MPH in around the 5 second mark and continue on up to a 180 MPH top speed.
The GranCabrio represents the very essence of Maserati in terms of open air motoring. It’s a Maserati in the purest sense of the word: from the unmistakable styling carried out by Pininfarina to the luxurious and spacious interior. From the craftsmanship of each detail to the driving pleasure and performance the Maserati GranCabrio enriches all five senses, without the need to sacrifice comfort and performance.
Updated 02/09/10:Maserati revealed a new image gallery of the Maserati GranCabrio and also a series of video of the car on the road. Check them out!

Ask any real piston-head who lives and breathes grease oil and they’ll tell you that there’s no more invigorating, satisfying, and relaxing sound than the monstrous roar of an unbridled V8 engine piercing the road.
Ok, maybe there’s also the sound of hoots and whistles from people who wish they had your ride. That’s a pretty awesome thing to hear too.
But even that is a distant second to hearing something along the lines of a 2011 V8 Maserati GranCabrio in all its uninhibited glory.
Close your eyes and listen. It’s music to our ears.
No it’s not a horse-drawn carriage like the ones we’ve come to know in fairy tales, but we’re hedging our bets that these gorgeous debutantes had no problem being chauffer driven in a Maserati Quattroporte .
The young debutantes had the time of their lives, not just by getting a chance to ride a Quattroportes, but they were also decked from head to toe with some of the world’s most expensive jewelries. On top of that, the ladies were also greeted at the ball by no less than a few women who know a thing or two about royalty: HRH Princess Katarina of Yugoslavia, HH Princess Olga Romanov and Their Graces The Duke and Duchess of Somerset. As far as the Maserattis were concerned, the luxury car brand was the official entourage vehicle of the Queen Charlotte’s Ball. Apart from its duties as entourage vehicle, Maseratti also took advantage of the occasion by auctioning off an all-new 2010 Maserati GranCabrio .
The event, which was founded over 250 years ago to raise fund for mothers and babies, was supported by Maserati GB together with its London distributor, HR Owen Sports Cars, in an attempt to raise donations to the Wolfston and Weston Research Centre for Family Health at the Hammersmith and Queen Charlotte’s Hospital site of Imperia l College London. The event was able to raise £60,000 for the hospital where the money would be put to use to help further develop research of premature birth, miscarriage, and infertility among mothers and all women alike. Here at TopSpeed, we appreciate a noble deed when we see one and Maserati’s involved at such a worthy cause will not go unnoticed. Good work, gentlemen.
