Maserati revealed today that its new 2010 GranTurismo Convertible -- the firm's first four-seat convertible -- will start at $135,800 when it arrives at dealerships this spring.
As expected from Maserati, the options list is robust, offering nine exterior colors with five hues, ten shades of leather, six soft-top colors, three wood trim options, and six colors for the brake calipers. Also available are 20-in wheels, active suspension, rear park sensors, chrome exterior trim, sports exhaust system, and surround sound from Bose. The 4.7-liter V-8 comes from the GranTurismo S and produces 433-hp. A six-speed automatic, with paddle shifters, routes power to the rear wheels. Driver and passenger can hear the full brunt of the engine by lowering the top, a 24-second process that doesn't compromise rear seat room or trunk space, says Maserati. The 56 Maserati dealers in North America will receive GranTurismo Convertibles in the spring.
