Falling in-line with the sporty drop-top, the two-door coupe has removed its mid-spec model and now offers only an entry-level Sport – formally known as Sportline – and top-tier MC, which replaces the Stradale.
The duo receives a fresh look that features new front-end styling with chrome surround hexagonal grille, bi-xenon headlights with revised LED daytime running and several minor touches to the front splitter and air ducts. Maserati has also re-worked the rear bumper for a fresh look from behind.
A new Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible 8.4-inch touchscreen has been added to the cabin along with a reversing camera. Maserati has also ditched some of the manual buttons and integrated more features into the touchscreen display for a de-clutter dash. An upgraded Harman/Kardon stereo system is also now standard.
The only engine option is a naturally-aspirated 4.7-litre V8 petrol unit producing 338kW and 520Nm with a six-speed auto delivering power to the rear wheels.
The Italian brand’s sporty cabriolet and coupe is offered in 16 exterior colours, eight interior colours and five interior trim lines as well as offering 14 different alloy-wheel options that are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres.
Pricing for the entry-level GranCabrio Sport model has been clipped by $3000 to $335,000 before on-road costs, while the higher-grade MC variant remains priced at $355,000.
The new GranTurismo line-up is priced from $295,000 for the Sport model, while the MC is priced at $345,000, retaining the same pricing as the previous models they replace.
