Maserati Granturismo S and Grancabrio at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed


The 150,000 spectators at the Goodwood Festival of Speed were treated to an amazing sight as an extraordinary array of over 30 supercars kicked off the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Amongst them were the Trident Marque’s two latest additions: the GranTurismo S MC Sport Line and the all new GranCabrio.

The GranCabrio represents the very essence of Maserati in terms of open-top cars. It’s a Maserati in the purest sense of the word and a car with a high emotional appeal: from its luscious looks and Pininfarina styling to its thrilling sound and amazing performance. Powered by a 4.7 litre V8 delivering 440 HP, the GranCabrio features a ZF automatic six-speed gearbox and is the convertible with the longest wheelbase in its class (2,492mm). It reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) from dstill in 5.4 seconds and has a top speed of 175 mph.

Celebrity Chef and car collector James Martin closed the Supercars hillclimb behind the wheel of the Maserati GranTurismo S MC Sport Line on Sunday afternoon. The Maserati GranTurismo S features a 4.7 litre V8 which develops 440HP, 490Nm of torque and reaches 62mph from standstill in 4.9 seconds flat.
