The Maserati GranCabrio MC enters the market as an astounding supersports car with top performance statistics, and yet still maintains everyday driver usability.
Results of aerodynamic data from the Maserati motorsport program is evident on the GranCabrio MC. The front fascia is characterised by an aerodynamic splitter that makes the car longer. The rear bumper has been redesigned as well and the final result of both modifications impacts on the length of the car, adding 52mm, and on the increase of downforce. The track experience and computational fluid dynamics have resulted in an aerodynamic package that has 10 percent more front downforce and 25 percent more rear downforce at 140km/h.
Maserati technicians introduced a series of changes for the GranCabrio MC aimed at enhancing the car’s aerodynamic efficiency, without detriment to its innate class and elegance. The result is a car that is more aggressive, but still unmistakably Maserati: the front is dominated by the traditional oval grille featuring black vertical slats and a Trident with red trims in the centre.
The spoiler and front air intakes give the front an even more muscular look, and together with the slots on the front wings and the side skirts, combine to extract hot air from the braking system and deliver downforce to the entire car, without increasing drag. At 140 km/h the aerodynamic load is 25% greater at the front and 50% greater at the rear compared to the GranCabrio Sport. The rear is equally exciting, proposing a higher, more centrally positioned exhaust, with the lower edge of the bumper guaranteeing enhanced extraction of airflow from the undercarriage. The spoiler incorporates the third stop light and is designed to produce downforce at high speed.
