Masserati announced that they already sold a total of 1,717 units in the United States and that there is now a waiting list for the GranCabrio.
According to the Italians, sales were up 48 percent this year through November. Maserati sold a total of 1,717 units in the United States during that period, including 558 units of the GranTurismo Convertible since its introduction in March, according to Autodata Corp.
“We are pleased with the results this year,” said Jeffrey Ehoodin, a Maserati spokesman.
Maserati says the GranCabrio is “designed and built for men and women who love to live life in an understated—though sophisticated—manner.” The car’s ride comfort will surely be aided by Maserati’s claim that the GranCabrio is “the convertible with the longest wheelbase on the market.”
The 2010 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible is powered by a 4.7 liter V8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The GranCabrio sprints from 0 to 62mph in 5.4 seconds with a top speed of 176 mph.
Prices in the US for this beauty start at $ 135,800.
