Meet the Maserati GranCabrio, the four-seat, open top version of the long-wheelbase GranTurismo. It looks fabulous, at least as good as the hard-top - with the roof down you can see all four headrests and better understand why its wheelbase is so long.
Surprisingly, the weight penalty exacted for all this strengthening, plus the electrically powered triple-layer fabric roof and pop-up roll-over protection behind the rear head rests is just 100kg. And yet, the GranCabrio is very nearly as torsionally stiff as the coupe and so drives pretty much the same too.
There's a sense that the GranCabrio is a heavy car, a feeling reinforced by the steering's weight, but it feels plenty quick enough and the V8 is sweet and characterful. If it's a bit too meek you can always push the 'sport' button which triggers tauter damping, quicker gearbox responses, sharper throttle response and a gloriously vocal engine note. Around 3000rpm, even on a modest throttle opening, the exhaust note becomes an open, bassy, resonant howl.
It hits the mark in many respects, delivering a driving experience very like that of the GranTurismo, and offering more generous space for four than any rival convertible.
