New Maserati GranCabrio MC
The GranCabrio MC is the hardest-hitting Maserati convertible, enriched with seductive Italian elegance and luxurious comfort.
The GranCabrio range has been streamlined for 2018 and two well-defined versions will be offered – Sport and MC. The 4.2-litre GranCabrio has been discontinued, while the Sport and MC share the same powertrain and interior personalization packages. GranCabrio MC – short for Maserati Corse.
When it came to the MY18 restyle, the timeless Pininfarina design was treated with the utmost respect by the Maserati Design Centre. The results, among others, are even better aerodynamic efficiency and compliance with the latest pedestrian safety regulations.
For 2018, there are eight interior colours and five interior trim options – from Carbon Fibre to Black Piano and Walnut Briarwood. All are available on the Sport and MC. There are also three Special Edition interior packages as well as an optional new Centennial Pack (in four colour combinations) for both GranCabrio versions. The athletic character of the GranCabrio MC is even more striking when equipped with the Poltrona Frau® leather/Alcantara upholstery, gearshift paddles and drilled aluminium foot pedals. Front Sport seats with carbon fibre backs are available as an option.
The central diffuser
The central diffuser is specific to each version. The GranCabrio MC is decisively sportier, with round outlets coming through the central, transparent diffuser. The exhaust system of the MC version is lighter and has a totally different shape and function. When in Sport mode, a valve channels exhaust gases so they completely bypass the silencer. This reduces back pressure and creates a breathtakingly sporty sound.
The compact and lightweight 4.7-litre V8 engine, develops 460hp, 520Nm or torque and revs to an impressive 7,500 rpms. The naturally aspirated unit is hand-assembled by Ferrari in Maranello and weighs only 175kg
