Maserati Announces Pricing For 2012 GranTurismo MC and GranTurismo Convertible Sport

Maserati just released the pricing of its latest North American offerings, the 2012 GranTurismo MC and 2012 GranTurismo Convertible Sport. The GranTurismo MC will start at $139,900, and the GranTurismo Convertible Sport will start at $142,800. Both prices include $1800 in destination fees and $1700 in gas guzzler taxes.

Maserati’s GranTurismo MC is essentially the North American version of the GranTurismo MC Stradale -- which, for those attentively paying attention, runs somewhere close to $204,000. Both are designed to be the top-end Maserati sports cars in their respective markets, share the same high-revving 444-hp, 4.7-liter V-8, and the same body kit. But that's essentially where the similarities end.

The extra $64,000 or so nets Stradale buyers a roll cage, four-point harnesses, carbon fiber race seats, carbon ceramic brakes, and perhaps most importantly, its automated-manual transaxle. U.S.-spec MC cars do without those features, and also utilize a more conventional six-speed ZF automatic, which bolts directly to the engine. Still, it'll be one sexy, sporty coupe...

Maserati’s $142,800 GranTurismo Convertible Sport is the convertible version of the GranTurismo S. It features the same engine, exhaust and body kit as its two-door sibling. The freedom of open-air motoring? It's yours for a $7000 premium over fixed-roof GranTurismo S models. Motivation is still provided by a 440-hp form of Maserati's venerable 4.7-liter V-8.
