The exterior design of the Maserati GranCabrio: unmistakably formed by the wind
The Maserati GranCabrio succeeds in being both dynamic and elegant. The car draws its inspiration from the GranTurismo performance Coupe, an example of the perfect synthesis of modernity, sensuality and passion.
Created by master coachbuilder Pininfarina, the GranCabrio is characterised by its soft-top roof. This styling bonds the GranCabrio closely with the company’s history of refined design.
When closed, the roof follows the original contours of the GranTurismo, with a hood that has the same smart, forward-slanting design, giving the GranCabrio the dashing looks of the stunning Maserati coupe.
Once open, the Maserati GranCabrio transforms into a striking cabriolet, free to show off all its sensuous beauty. The vibrant profile is accentuated by the low ground clearance and long bonnet. A stylish ‘V’ points towards the grille, in the middle of which stands the legendary chrome Trident.
The vehicle sides also feature chrome elements that give the GranCabrio some added distinction. One particularly design feature is the continuous chrome trim that surrounds the cabin and integrates with the third rear stop light.
Towards the rear of the car, the triangular light cluster is formed by 96 LEDs with a wide diffuser that further underlines the car’s athletic poise. This sporty feel is also seen in the large 20” alloy wheels that reflect the Trident design.
The shape of the GranCabrio is the result of extensive aerodynamic testing aimed at limiting the drag typical of droptop cars. The GranCabrio boasts a Cx coefficient that is one of the best in its class: 0.35 with the hood up and 0.39 with it down. The spoiler and rear diffuser both contribute to obtaining top levels of roadholding.
