German tuner DMC has released a conversion for the Maserati GranCabrio, which includes an engine upgrade, suspension upgrades, new rims and several carbon fiber exterior parts. It is the first time the Germans fitted the kit to the convertible instead of the GranTurismo Coupe. The package got the name Maserati GranCabrio Sovrano.
On the front fascia, the newly designed front bumper is accompanied by a new spoiler lip. Additional air inlets and outlets are added to the new light construction bonnet. The widebody side skirts have zig-zag end-panels. The trunk spoiler at the back and a new rear diffuser complete the new look. All add-on parts are made from carbon fiber and are manufactured by DMC using autoclave prepreg vacuum processing.
The optical appearance also includes a sport suspension for the front and rear axles, which lowers the vehicle’s center of gravity by around 30 millimeters. Contact to the ground is maintained by 255/30 R20 front tyres and 305/30 R21 rear tyres at the back. The wheels are PUR’s 1NE Monoblock designs with a Modern Gloss Black. On request of the customer, these wheels are sprayed in the colour of the vehicle and decorated with black accents.
Under the hood, the 4.7 liter V8 is more potent thanks to a supercharger that is driven using a cogged-tooth belt. The Maserati is now able to produce an additional 150hp and 82Nm, which means a total of 590hp at 7,300rpm and 642Nm of torque at 5,400rpm.
In the interior DMC used leather with a chequered stitch and plenty of carbon fiber. The aluminium pedals and new ergonomically designed sporty steering wheel are two other parts added to the setup.
