Maserati Convertible Reviews

Those who want a true luxury sports car know in which directions they should look. There are a few varieties of sports car that can truly be considered in the luxury class. The Maserati is one of them. Whether looking at a coupe or Maserati convertible, one knows the name and what they can expect from it. The company began nearly a century ago as an Italian sports car company owned by a team of brothers. They used their last name for the company and it has continued with that name since even though it has changed hands many times since those early days. This is likely because the name has developed a solid reputation since its inception.

Over the years that the Maserati has been in production there has been more than one Maserati convertible offered. The company offered different models during its early years than it did when it was bought in 1937 by Citroen. It would later make it to Fiat, Ferrari and back to the Fiat Auto Group. Each change of hands brought new ideas and offerings to the Maserati lineup. Though they offer and have always offered a sedan, it is the coupe and convertible sports car model that has built the name to mean what it does today.

When it comes to the Maserati convertible, the currently known version is the GranCabrio. As one might expect, the name is a variant of the popular GranTurismo name of the sports car. In the U.S. it is simply known as the GranTurismo Convertible since that is exactly what it is. The GranCabrio was first shown to the public in 2009, but it was not actually built for buyers until 2010. It offers much of the same that comes with the GranTurismo including the 2+2 seating and the engine.

Beginning in 2011 there was a GranCabrio Sport added to the Maserati convertible line. The goal of the Sport is to add better handling and performance to an already powerful and popular car. It has the same engine as the GranCabrio, but it boasts an automatic transmission and more sporty styling than its predecessor. However, it is not the look of the Sport that sets it apart. It is the way it handles out on the road. This version of the convertible offers a more precise and high performance experience than the standard convertible model.

Throughout the history of sports cars convertibles have been offered to the public. The Maserati convertible is no exception to this. Blending the speed of a sports car and the luxury that can only come from Maserati, the GranCabrio also offers a convertible option that is simply more fun than the others. Like most Maseratis, the payment for the experience will be higher than with other sports cars on the market. A price tag of well over $100,000 ensures that it is not a vehicle that will be seen often along the roadways. The ability to have something that few others have is one of the reasons that the Maserati is chosen.
