Smaller Convertible Maserati Gran Turismo On The Way

Written by tonks on September 11, 2008

New rumors state that Maserati is working in creating a hard-top convertible. We do know that they are in the middle of developing a convertible version of the larger Grantors – but these new reports suggest that the car – that was caught on tape – is smaller then what was previously thought.

The new model is supposedly going to be available only in the hard-top convertible form. If this is true then it’s safe to say it will come with a fast-action retractable roof that is lighter than the usual soft-top mechanism.

The new small Maserati is expected to have a 2+2 cabin layout, although the rear seats are anticipated to be removable. Power is tipped to come from a smaller version of the 4.2-liter V8 in the base GranTurismo, producing about 350hp and driving the rear wheels through a revised version of the DuoSelect clutchless manual transmission still used in the GranTurismo S instead of the newer ZF six-speed auto in the rest of the Maserati range.
