After what seemed like an age we finally took delivery over the only Maserati Gran Cabrio ( Gran Turismo Convertible ) available to hire in the UK.
First impressions were 'WOW'! This car takes four seat comfort in a supercar to whole new level. We opted for a striking colour combination of white exterior and a rosso red interior with matching dashboard and rear enclosing shelf giving you a sea of colour once nestled in the cabin.
The seats are very very nice and put you in the correct driving position. The instruments are clear and surprisingly well finished, but one or two buttons are a little hard to find due to the positioning. Flick the cover back to expose the roof collapse button and the process takes about 15 seconds to become topless and what you are left with is a picture of Italian beauty. But that's not the best bit.
Turn the ignition key and you are welcomed by a mild growl but the sound is invigorating, press the accelerator and once you get up the rev range the growl turns into a roar, press the sport button and what I can express in only one way is 'the greatest sound I've heard from a road car' - EVER!
