Italian tuner Novitec Tridente this time took on the gorgeous Maserati GranCabrio drop-top and added a whole lot of power to its beauty.
The standard GranCabrio is a soft and cozy kind of car suitable for long distance cruising in peace and comfort. Novitec’s Maser does that, but it’s also good at fun and games. And that’s mainly due to the naughty things they’ve done to the engine.
They’ve used the same supercharger kit they offer for the GranTurismo and Quattroporte, combined with a custom intake manifold and larger injectors, which turn the power of 4.7-liter V8 engine by 150 hp / 110 kW to 590 hp / 434 kW at 7,300 rpm and the torque from 490 Nm to 572 Nm at 5,400 rpm. Performance-wise, the car does 0 – 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds and the top speed is 301 km/h instead of the standard 283 m/h.
The car also comes with fully stainless-steel exhaust system featuring four tailpipes with diameters of 90 millimeters and is available with or without control flap that allows the driver to choose what kind of soundtrack he wants at the touch of a button.
Novitec Tridente Maserati GranCabrio also sports a very discrete body kit with front spoiler, carbon-fiber radiator grille surround, rocker panel trim, rear spoiler lip and a diffuser for the standard bumper. As for the wheels, it comes with 21- and 22-inch alloy wheels for front and rear axles fitted with Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires. What’s more you also get adjustable suspension which can lower the car by up to 40mm. A custom interior treatment with the finest leather or Alcantara in any desired color finishes off the package.
This tuning kit for Maserati GranCabrio is awesome, but it’s also costly. That engine treatment alone for example costs nearly 20,000 Euro.
