GranCabrio MC - Exteriors
Below the racy exterior lies the elegant spirit of a lady
When it comes to the design and construction of convertibles of unique, inimitable beauty the Maserati tradition reaches new heights with the birth of the new GranCabrio MC: a unique car that maintains the elegant, luxury style of Maserati's first genuine four-seater cabriolet, the GranCabrio, with the added benefit of the technological expertise gained on the racetrack by Maserati Corse.
Aerodynamic research has created a unique silhouette, styled by the wind
The Maserati engineers have introduced a series of changes on the GranCabrio MC aimed at enhancing the car’s aerodynamic efficiency without compromising its innate class and elegance. Features developed for the GranTurismo MC Stradale two-seater coupé have been adapted to the needs of a sleek convertible like the GranCabrio: features masterfully combined that help to create a unique silhouette, styled by the wind.
Elegance and sportiness in the black details of the Shadow Line version
The front is dominated by the traditional Maserati oval grille featuring black vertical fillets and a Trident with red mouldings in the centre. In line with the image of the Shadow Line version with its many black exterior details, the new front lights come in a feisty matt black, while the LED tail lights sport an exclusive burnished finish.
At the rear, the bumper has been redesigned with centrally located exhausts and a profile designed to promote efficient flow out from under the body.
The high tailpipes leave room for a very pronounced extractor profile
At the rear, the tailpipes are positioned higher and more centrally to leave space for the bottom of the bumpers, which improves the extraction of airflow from underneath the car. The spoiler incorporates a third brake light and produces downforce at high speeds. The dynamic look created by the lines is also emphasised by the 20” MC Design wheels, which are not only lighter, but also sport the traditional Maserati Trident, which has skilfully been incorporated into their double spokes.
The original pearly white colour recalls the triumphs of the mythical Birdcage
The functional, aggressive look of the body is enhanced by unique details like the new Bianco Birdcage three-layer paint finish: with its unusual blue tints, this colour seems to change all the time. A striking effect that is a nod in the direction of the white and blue-striped trim that was the hallmark of the Tipo 61 Birdcage, a car that competed successfully in the top US championships in the early Sixties.
