Maserati Launches 542 hp 2024 GranCabrio Convertible

Maserati has just launched its latest convertible. The 2024 Maserati GranCabrio gets the 542 hp V6 from the GranTurismo, but unlike that model, it can drop its top in as little as 14 seconds.

The new Maserati GranCabrio is being launched in Trofeo trim. That includes the 3.0L twin-turbo Nettuno V6 and its 542 hp. The same monster of a V6 you’ll find in the coupe.

Also like the coupe, this is a stunning shape. Maserati doesn’t change its design often, but as the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

The roof is fabric, letting it take up less space in the small trunk. It’s also gesture-controlled through the car’s touchscreen. It can fold in 14 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h, and the cabin remains large enough for four passengers. Maserati will make the top in five different colours, which is quite a unique feature among convertible models these days.

To let the driver spend more time with the roof down, the GranCabrio comes with a standard neck warmer. It offers three levels of heating for both of the front seats. An optional wind blocker cuts out the rear seats but should make the cabin more comfortable at speed.

The dash is the same as the GranTurismo, including a 12.3-inch center screen and a 12.2-inch digital dash, along with a smaller screen for climate control functions.

Maserati hasn’t set pricing but said that the car will go on sale in the summer. Expect it to start well above the $239,000 starting price in Canada for the Trofeo GranTurismo.
