When it comes to designing convertibles, Maserati has always led the way. The speed, reliability and elegance of its very first open-top racing cars marked Maserati out as a motoring powerhouse from the very beginning. Cutting-edge for their time, the legacy of these early cabriolets is plain to see in the convertible masterpieces crafted by Maserati throughout its glorious hundred years in business. Today’s Maserati makes travel a powerful and unique experience, with the new MC Centennial Edition representing the ultimate in motoring ‘al fresco’.
Unrivalled power, performance and elegance: the GranTurismo Convertible MC Centennial Edition is a luxury true Maserati lovers cannot afford to miss.
It is no coincidence that Maserati opted to release an exclusive new edition of the Convertible to mark its first centenary. This model evokes the essence of the House of the Trident with a silhouette that is as powerful as it is elegant. The Convertible MC Centennial Edition also pays tribute to its illustrious forebear: the brand’s first soft-top to comfortably accommodate four people.
Precision engineering reigns supreme under the bonnet, where a 90 degree V8 engine of 4,691 cm3 generates 454 HP at 7,000 rpm, and a maximum torque of 520 Nm at 4,750 rpm. Quick, smooth gear shifts are guaranteed by the six-speed ZF automatic gearbox with hydraulic torque converter, while four operating modes give the driver complete control.
Maserati has championed technological expertise and innovation since 1914. The centennial edition represents the culmination of this heritage, where one hundred years of cutting edge design reaches its zenith. Despite its long wheelbase, the streamlined form offers outstanding aerodynamic performance, while a balanced weight distribution achieves trustworthy, predictable handling.
Italian Premium leather seats in Bianco Pregiato, exquisite Blu Santorini inserts and contrasting stitching in Blu Sofisticato, make the interior of the Convertible MC Centennial Edition truly sublime. This is the perfect colour combination for a cabriolet: a luxurious yet sporty interior that comes into its own when it is opened up to the sun and sky.
The interior of the Convertible MC Centennial Edition is the perfect tribute to the quality and finesse of Maserati design. The expertise of skilled artisans is strongly articulated throughout, from the painstaking double stitching of the cabriolet’s upholstery to its carpets with matching accent trims. A comfortable, streamlined arrangement of panels in the seating moulds to the contours of the body and ensures a relaxing drive for all.
