Video: Ultimate Factories - Maserati

We love Maserati models, that’s no doubt. And of course we are only interested in how good they look and how perfect they handle. But if you want to know how a $135,000 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible is being built when you should definitely watch the Ultimate Factories: Maserati on Thursday, February 10 at 10PM ET/PT.

It takes 22 days for a Maserati to be assembled and considered road ready a GranTurismo Convertible. Parts are assembled in Torino, Italy, while Maserati engines, made by Ferrari, are delivered to Modena, Italy. Another nine days are spent inspecting and testing each finished car. Then each car must pass a grueling series of road tests on both local streets and highways as well as on Maserati’s own cobblestone test track before it is ready to be shipped across the world.

After all that work you will be able to enjoy a 170 mph convertible model!

Yeah! And the good thing is Maserati inherited its good quality from its sister company the Ferrari . There car really looks so sporty and the performance is so awesome! I’m really thankful for the team creative that’s behind on this production.

That 900 vehicles a day number includes 300’s and Chargers I assume. Otherwise the factory would be closed 9 months a year.
