The new GranCabrio MC is the sportiest drop-top Maserati ever. NOVITEC TRIDENTE, the world’s leading refinement specialist for the automobiles bearing the trident, further builds on these talents with a sophisticated customization program: the NOVITEC TRIDENTE supercharged engine producing 475 kW / 646 hp of power and a peak torque of 624 Nm gives the drop-top 2+2 seater a top speed in excess of 305 km/h. The program also includes high-tech forged wheels, a hydraulically height-adjustable coil-over suspension and exclusive interior options.

The 4.7-liter eight-cylinder four-valve V8 engine drives the mechanical supercharger via a V-ribbed belt. The maximum boost pressure is limited to 0.43 bar.

The conversion, which sells for 23,900 euros, also includes a more voluminous intake manifold, larger injectors and newly calibrated mapping for the engine electronics.

The NOVITEC TRIDENTE hood with centrally positioned air scoop lets the supercharged engine breathe freely. For optimized venting of the engine compartment the hood also features two generously dimensioned air outlets. The hood is also available as an individual component without engine conversion.

In conjunction with the six-speed automatic transmission that can also be shifted with shift paddles on the steering wheel the drop-top 2+2 seater delivers exceptional performance: the tuned GranCabrio MC accelerates from rest to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds and to 200 km/h in a mere 11.4 seconds. Top speed is in excess of 305 km/h.

To visually refine the vehicle’s exhaust system that comes ex-factory with electronic sound management NOVITEC TRIDENTE upgrades the flap-controlled production exhaust with two 105-mm tailpipes that are available with a choice of black-coated or polished finish.
