Maserati GranCabrio MC takes off its cover for Paris Motor Show


We’ve seen the Maserati MC hardtop and convertible versions, and now the company is adding another convertible version called the Maserati GranCabrio MC. The new convertible will make its to the 2012 Paris Motor Show. It looks like Maserati is milking the heck out of the GranTursimo platform.

The new Maserati GranCabrio MC by appearance looks similar to the MC Stradale coupe.  According to Maserati, it is inspired by the success of the GranTurismo MC Stradale; although the front and rear ends get a bit of revisions to give the new GranCabrio MC has a sporty and aggressive look.

Power for the Maserati Maserati GranCabrio MC will like by the same as the hardtop version, which is the same 4.7-liter V8 engine producing 444 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque, and mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Also, an even larger rear spoiler was added to provide more down-force at high speeds due to the open-top.

The Maserati GranCabrio MC will debut later this week in Paris, but in the meantime, check out the above.
