2009 FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW: Maserati GranCabrio

Continuing with its pledge to introduce a new product at every major international auto show, Maserati introduced the GranCabrio today in stunning fashion.

Only a car company that describes its cars’ driving experiences as emotional and sensational, and whose cars ooze with sex appeal and class, could introduce a car in the way we met the GranCabrio today. With the giant dresses of two models serving to cover the car, we awaited the sensual unveiling of such a sensual car. As the models slowly walked away from the car, stripping the cover to reveal what lied underneath, I wasn’t sure if I should’ve been reaching for my camera to snap some pictures of the car or reaching for my wallet for some dollar (errr. . . euro) bills. One thing is for sure though, the GranCabrio is one sexy automobile. But it isn’t just looks; with a 50/50 weight distribution, 5.4 second zero to sixty time, and 175 mph top speed, this beauty will surely put smiles on your face from the driver’s seat. Look for this car to reach U.S. showrooms by next year.
