70 YEARS OF GRANTURISMO

Uniquely, the Grand Touring is at the heart of every single Maserati.
The original concept was enticingly simple. It involved fitting a sophisticated race car engine into a luxurious, handcrafted sedan. Seamlessly combining these two worlds was, of course, far from simple. Yet it is exactly what Maserati did in 1947 with the A6 1500 GT Pininfarina and some years later with the 3500GT prototype: “The White Dame”. Such power had never been so beautifully packaged and delivered – opening up all kinds of new, long-distance possibilities.

A6 1500
THE FIRST MASERATI GRANTURISMO

The prototype of what can be considered the first GranTurismo – i.e. the first Maserati destined for road use and not for racing – was unveiled at the 1947 Geneva Motor Show. It was christened ‘A6’ – A in honour of Alfieri Maserati and 6 denoting its straight-six engine. Its incredible styling was the work of the renowned designer Pininfarina. Featuring a tapered two-seater cabin, three horizontal ventilation inlets on the wings and futuristic hidden headlights, the design and originality were immediately appreciated by the public.

3500 GT Vignale Spyder
A WORK OF ART

The 3500 GT coupé was launched at the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, it marked the company’s entry into the growing grand tourer market and soon became a favourite of Italy’s celebrities and business leaders. A roadster version followed in 1959 - the stunning 3500 GT Spyder Vignale, designed by Giovanni Michelotti, the leading stylist at the renowned coachbuilders, Vignale. This soft-top Maserati was a masterpiece of proportion and was described in the press as a ‘rolling work of art’.

Ghibli SS Coupé
LA DOLCE VITA

The late 1960s saw the birth of the supercar and some of the most revolutionary and breath-taking designs ever conceived. Amongst the true greats of this era was the Maserati Ghibli. Named after a Saharan wind, it was considered an automotive portrayal of ‘la dolce vita’. It featured exotic elements such as pop-up headlights, electric windows and magnesium alloy wheels. Plush sports seats, with wide ribs, rounded cushions, and a reclined driving position made this car a truly comfortable grand tourer, whilst a spacious 24 cubic foot boot and large twin fuel tanks enhanced its practicality.

3200 GT Assetto Corsa
PERFORMANCE WITH FINE CRAFTSMANSHIP

Launched in 1998, the 3200 GT was the first of a new generation of Maseratis produced under Ferrari management. Innovative and visually dramatic, it also had all the power and performance that customers expected of the marque, being capable of an impressive 174 mph and 0-62 mph in 5.1 seconds. In 2001, Maserati launched a special limited edition of the 3200 GT, named Assetto Corsa. Its interior featured perforated Connolly leather seats, sporty drilled aluminium pedals, and 'Assetto Corsa' scripts on the sill kick panels. The complexity of its upholstery was a testament to Italian expertise and fine craftsmanship in leatherwork.

Features & Equipment

Technology, features and equipments

In safe hands

Maserati makes life extremely comfortable and convenient for all on board, with standard features such as a folding front armrest with an illuminated storage compartment, cruise control, automatic headlight activation, electric opening assist for the boot lid and doors, dual zone automatic climate control with two rear outlets, and a good deal more. There is also, of course, a very strong focus on safety

The Maserati Stability Program (MSP) is a stand-out example. Developed in the most extreme test conditions, it uses an array of sensors to constantly monitor driving status and deploys a host of safety and performance systems to maintain handling and grip. If, for instance, a skid is detected, MSP selectively reduces engine torque and can activate the brakes with finely varied inputs to restore stability within milliseconds.

All models are also offered with the optional Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Should a tyre become under-inflated, a warning light illuminates in the cabin. More passive safety is offered by airbags all round, including side airbags integrated with the Sport seats and curtain airbags.

When it comes to light and sight, all models are fitted with Adaptive Light Control, a system that swivels the headlights as you turn, greatly improving road illumination in corners. To the rear, triangular lamp clusters comprise some 96 LEDs to ensure maximum nighttime visibility. Daytime Running Lights using LED technology, meanwhile, enhance the visibility of your vehicle during the day. There’s a standard rear-view camera, too. This integrates with the on-board monitor to ensure easy, incident-free reversing.

Other functions include ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Anti Slip Regulation (ASR), Engine brake torque control (MSR), which prevents the wheels from locking when downshifting on low-grip surfaces, and an Advanced Brake Assist system (ABA), which recognises emergency braking situations and increases the pressure in the braking circuit to maximise stopping power. Additionally, the Maserati Stability Program (MSP) works in harmony with Anti Slip Regulation (ASR) traction control and anti-lock brakes (ABS) to stop the wheels from locking under hard braking. This is enhanced by Hydraulic Braking Assistance (HBA).

Accessories

Maserati Genuine Accessories range allows to refine the performance, comfort and style of your GranCabrio. The attention to detail, design and quality of each accessory reveal the very essence of the Maserati brand.
The GranCabrio accessories range includes exclusive Wheels Rims and branded Tyres, such as the MGT (Maserati Genuine Tyres), and offers customers also sport and care solutions, including stylishCarbon Doorsill Plates and Car Covers.

Engine

A true GranCabrio needs a grand-scale engine – with continentcrossing capabilities and a ruthless streak, as and when you need it. Which is where the Ferrari-built 4.7-litre V8 comes in.

This compact and lightweight powerplant is fitted to all GranCabrio models, develops 460hp, 520Nm of torque and revs to an impressive 7,500rpm. It also makes extensive use of motor sport-derived technology for race-grade resistance to high dynamic loads while maintaining exceptional refinement.

The GranCabrio Sport and GranCabrio MC reach 100km/h (62mph) from a standing start in 5.0 and 4.9 seconds respectively. Top speeds are 288km/h (179mph) and 291km/h (181mph).

All this power finds its way to the road via a ZF six-speed MC Auto Shift gearbox. This operates in Auto-Normal, Auto-Sport, Manual-Normal, Manual-Sport and ICE modes. These offer a wide range of driving styles. Not only does this smooth out the transition, the pops and burbles are also a joy to the ears of any motor sport aficionado.

Driving dynamics

Near-perfect front-to-rear weight distribution – with a marginal rearward bias – has always been a Maserati hallmark.

This is achieved with the GranCabrio models, in customary style, by locating the V8 just behind the front axle.
Out on the open road – or on the race track – this delivers a world of benefits. They include naturally balanced handling, optimum grip, great steering feedback and precise directional stability.

A double wishbone suspension set-up, hydraulic steering – rather than a less engaging electro-mechanical system – Brembo brakes and a sophisticated mechanical limited slip differential also contribute in these vital areas.

The GranCabrio Sport offers Sport Skyhook damping, which constantly adapts its settings to suit the road conditions (optional for GranCabrio MC). Normal is a day-to-day configuration that still, nonetheless, maintains the essential dynamic involvement you would expect of a Maserati. Sport, meanwhile, provides a far more direct and firmly set up driving experience.

HARMAN KARDON PREMIUM SOUND SYSTEM

Driving, or being driven in, a Maserati is a uniquely rousing experience. So it’s only fitting that the vehicle has an audio system always perfectly in tune with the mood – whether you’re driving hard or soaking up the miles on the trip of a lifetime.

This comes in the shape of new premium audio systems from worldclass audio innovator Harman Kardon – tailor-made for the interiors of the GranCabrio. The GranCabrio system features 11 high-quality speakers, while there are 10 on the Coupé powered by a Class-D 12-channel 900-watt amplifier.

It features AuraVoc sound tuning and class-leading Harman Kardon sound processing technologies: these are exceptionally advanced packages that deliver distortion-free and detail-rich listening enjoyment in all four seats.

Redesgined infotainment

An all-new Infotainment system for all GranCabrio models includes a high-resolution 8.4’’ Maserati Touch Control Plus unit (MTC+) that allows simple and intuitive control of features such as audio, navigation and comfort functions.
There is also a user-friendly rotary controller in the central console and the system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions.

MTC+ can be operated in three ways: via the touch-screen, the rotary controller or Siri voice command. The system’s menus have options to configure the car’s main settings and menus are readily accessible through the icons displayed at the bottom of the touch-screen. Other highlights include a handy mobile phone storage compartment containing an SD card reader, a USB socket and an aux-in port.

This allows the user to play music, watch films or even view images. Bluetooth connectivity, meanwhile, is standard.

Easy Entry system

As for accessing the rear seats, the Easy Entry system makes life particularly easy. Both front seats slide forward and back electrically, giving plenty of room whether passengers are getting into or out of the car. Two individually profiled rear seats, along with class-leading head and legroom, a central pull-down armrest, two cupholders, courtesy lights and a pair of climate control vents also ensure excellent comfort.
