Maserati’s GranCabrio offers a sublime design that embodies all that is compelling and irresistible about Italian cars. The exterior has curves in all the right places with the car resplendent in all of it’s factory original Bianco Eldorado paintwork, with the ‘porthole’ front quarter vents offering an aesthetic impact as well as aiding the extraction of hot air from the engine bay.
This GT boasts an interior that offers a blend of sophisticated luxury and Italian craftsmanship; the quality of the materials and attention to detail are top drawer. The fine Sabbia leather follows the contours of the seats beautifully. The steering wheel design is a unique triumph of luxury and performance with the paddle shift nestling behind. The soft top is presented in outstanding condition inside and out.
The driving position is just like it should be; low set, well bolstered and superbly comfortable.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The F136 Modena derived engine develops one of the most glorious noises in production with a character that shifts depending upon requirements. With Sport mode engaged you hear and feel the full force of the wet sumped V8 although without the car reverts to type – refined and reserved.
Maserati’s intention was to deliver a well-balanced and comfortable driving experience however with the engine pushed back behind the front axle, giving a 47 front / 53 rear weight distribution, the car also feels resolved and predictable when pushing on.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 20 inch offer a fantastic contrast to the white bodywork with the famous Trident symbol centre stage. Still on its original Pirelli P Zero tyres from new all round which show with plenty of life left with even tread wear.
Braking is consistent and progressive, the Brembo six-piston calipers hauling the car down from speed confidently and with a minimum of fuss.
This superb, nearly new RHD example was supplied by Maserati Malaysia in April 2010 where it’s lived all of it’s life, before being imported earlier this year to the UK.
On arrival it was sent to the Maserati main dealer Carrs Exeter who carried out a full service and gave it a full check over.
The book back features all literature from new alongside the spare key. The car is MOT’d, has had all taxes paid and is in the process of UK registration.
