In 2011, German tuner DMC unveiled a very cool Sovrano tuning package based on the Maserati GranTurismo . Now, they have applied that same treatment to the GranCabrio model, adding an extra 150 HP to the V8 engine and improving its aerodynamics.
The modifications start with a newly designed front bumper, a new spoiler lip that helps increase downforce on the front axle, and a new light-construction bonnet with additional air inlets and outlets. On the sides, the GranCabrio received some subtle side skirts with zig-zag end-panels, while the rear benefits from a new trunk spoiler, a new rear diffuser, and a number of carbon fiber add-on parts. For the interior, DMC combines leather with a checkered stitch with plenty of carbon fiber and a new set of aluminum pedals.
The biggest update DMC performed was the addition of a new supercharger that is driven using a cogged-tooth belt and increases the 4.7 liter V8 engine’s output up to an impressive 590 HP at 7,300rpm and 348 lb-ft of torque at 5,400rpm.
