An Iconic Convertible Created by Maserati

The legacy of the Maserati convertible begins in 1947 with the A6 1500 GT Pininfarina, a sophisticated coupe powered by a top-performing automobile racing engine.

A pioneer in engineering and technology, Maserati has produced a long line of iconic cars and SUVs that have become instant classics. With years of Italian-inspired designs, the Maserati A6 1500 GT Pininfarina paved the way for a long line of descendants.

Among the line of A6 1500 GT descendants are the Maserati GranTurismo Convertible and the GranTurismo Coupe. The exclusive blend of Italian styling, immense power, and advanced technology come together to create something of excellence.

The Maserati convertible is the marque’s interpretation of the iconic Italian GranTurismo powered by a naturally furocious V8 engine.

Race-inspired performance is flawlessly paired with the work of artisans in the Maserati GranTurismo Convertible. The perfect proportions and congruous shape are indicative of the original coupe. Both of which are a reflection of the highest achievements for Maserati.

Conceived as a natural exploration of the original A6 1500 GT, the Maserati GranTurismo Convertible is a timeless Pininfarina vision that has raised the bar for other convertibles.

Its style and purity include an aggressively sculpted grille, triple side vents, race-proven aerodynamic shape, while keeping the perfect profile of the coupe.
