September 13, 2005 Maserati launched the GranSport Spyder, the open-top version of its range topping GranSport Coupe, at the Frankfurt International Motor Show yesterday combining the thrilling drive and excellent performance of the GranSport coupe with the pleasures of roof-down motoring.
Set to arrive in very limited numbers during the middle of 2006, the Maserati GransSport Spyder shares all the styling, engine and chassis modifications that have lifted the GranSport to the top of its class. This includes the 4.2 litre V8 engine that delivers 400 bhp accompanied by a deep, full sound that is all the more enjoyable with the roof down, 19 inch alloys that rest at the end of up-rated suspension and styling that has been made more aggressive on the outside and, with Bright Tex fabric, cutting-edge inside.
Also debuting at the Frankfurt Motor Show are two new versions of the remarkable Maserati Quattroporte, the Executive GT and Sport GT, offering new levels of luxury and performance respectively. Like the GransSport Spyder, the new versions of the Quattroporte will become available in mid-2006.
