Maserati GranCabrio by Novitec

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Ferrari-specialist tuner Novitec has a new upgrade program for the Maserati GranCabrio. With the kit, the car manages a 0 to 100 km/h sprint in just 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 301 km/h (187 mph).

A power boost comes courtesy of a new supercharger and watercooled intercooler (along with some ECU tinkering, of course) which provides for an output of 590 PS (434 kW / 582 bhp) and 572 Nm (422 lb-ft) of torque on the 4.7 liter V8 (series is 440 PS (324 kW / 434 bhp).

Novitec also adds a stainless-steel sport exhaust (with a sound-selecting tuner for the driver) and a KW aluminum coilover kit for the new sport suspension.

For the body kit are carbon-fiber front spoiler, side skirts, rear apron and boot lid spoiler. The whole thing rides on 21-inch wheels at the front and 22-inchers for the rear axle.

Price for the upgrade package is around €20,000 ($29,000) including new intake manifold and larger injectors.
