The Maserati GranTurismo is one of the most beautiful Tridents we’ve ever seen (feel free to disagree with us). Either way, at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the Fiat-owned Italian supercar maker will unveil the new Maserati GranCabrio Sport.
Now if you’ve kept up-to-date with the Maserati GranTurismo lineup, you’ll remember that the convertible variant already came standard with the 434-hp 4.7L V8 that was found in the Maserati GranTurismo Sport.
For the Maserati GranCabrio Sport, Maserati is taking it a step further. Power comes from the same 4.7L V8 engine, but output has been increased to 450-hp and a maximum torque of 376 lb-ft. Mated to a ZF 6-speed automatic transmission, the GranCabrio Sport’s top speed is clocked in at 177 mph.
The Maserati GranCabrio Sport will go on sale in all of the company’s 62 markets in summer 2011. In the United States the Maserati GranCabrio Sport will be known as the Maserati GranTurismo Sport Convertible.
