After the Italian brand took the wraps off the 2018 GranTurismo coupe way back in New York, the Maserati aficionados present on site at the Goodwood Festival of Speed had the chance to witness the reveal of the facelifted 2018 GranCabrio.
The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo convertible/GranCabrio, shares the stylistic cues of the coupe brother, and with a design not overtly distinct compared to its predecessor. The new grille design is said to have been inspired by the design of the one found on the Maserati Alfieri concept, with new intake designs in the front bumper to help the aerodynamics. The rear bumper has also received a light nip and tuck. Inside the cabin, the most revealing change is the addition of the new 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and there’s also a refreshed center console with a new rotary controller and drive-mode buttons.
The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo convertible/GranCabrio is going to be offered in Sport and MC versions, each with its own styling tweaks. They do share the same engine – 4.7-liter V8 with six-speed automatic transmission and sending 460 horsepower (343 kilowatts) and 384 pound-feet (520 Newton-meters) of torque to the rear wheels. At the Goodwood FoS the brand is also showcasing an A6 1500 from 1947, a 3500 GT from the 1950s; a 1967 Ghibli SS Coupé; and the 3200GT that was first showed in 1998.
