  • Maserati GranTurismo: Big Georg tests Maserati's big coupe, now in road-racer spec.

    So officially, this is the first time that Maserati has produced a four-seat convertible. Maserati does have a rich heritage in elegant open-top sports cars, though.

    Introduced in , the GranTurismo MC Sport Line is a customization programme based.

    There is a downside, though: The unrivalled grand tourer which carries an unmistakable signature engine sound and the legendary Italian design of Pininfarina. Good news for frugal Maserati enthusiasts — driving both variants of Grancabrio back to back proves that the cheaper Sport is the more compelling option.

    Like its Granturismo sister , the Grancabrio has been given a very mild redesign plus specification tweaks, including the arrival of a touchscreen infotainment system. The range has also been simplified to just two variants: Both now use the same hp 4. Good news for frugal Maserati enthusiasts — driving both variants of Grancabrio back to back proves that the cheaper Sport is the more compelling option. The Sport still uses Skyhook variable shocks , which stay more pliant even when in their firmer mode; body flex is still evident over rougher surfaces, but with much less of the wet dog juddering of the MC.

    I defy anyone to detect the difference in real world use. While most of its rivals are either two-seaters or offer no more than purely nominal rear seat space, the Grancabrio is capable of accommodating more than just small children in the back. There is a downside, though: That really takes the edge off the handling, making the Grancabrio more reluctant to turn in and engendering a surprising amount of understeer at lower speeds. You quickly learn to drive around it, adapting to the more laid-back pace the car is happiest with, with reduced corner entry speeds giving more chance to extend the glorious sounding V8.

    The extra mass also works against the engine and its lack of low-down punch. Requests for hard acceleration mean either waiting for the not especially sharp-witted gearbox to shed several ratios, or downshifting yourself using the manual override.

    That and the submpg fuel consumption that comes with rapid progress. Should I buy one? The Grancabrio remains a hugely desirable car , but one that struggles to justify itself against more modern rivals when rational criteria are employed.

    But in dynamic terms it is lagging increasingly far behind the rest of its fast-moving segment. Maybe it doesn't compare well with some more modern rivals, but just look at it.
