2013 Maserati GranCabrio MC - Front

Maserati chose the Paris auto show to introduce the GranCabrio MC, the sixth model in its lineup and the third with an open top.

The four-seater GranCabrio MC is a convertible variant of the GranTurismo MC Stradale, which the company describes as translating and adapting racing characteristics for use on the road.

It joins the GranCabrio and GranCabrio Sport in Maserati's cabrio lineup, adding 48 millimetres to their length with its different styling, which incorporates the more-aggressive front and rear fascias and rear spoiler of the GranTurismo MC coupe.

Maserati says its profile is designed to optimize aerodynamic lift and flow, which differ from the other versions of the GranCabrio because of its increased length and different aerodynamic elements at the rear.

The new model's rear spoiler, which incorporates the third brake light, is body-coloured, but it is also available with a carbon finish as part of various customization packages.

Technical specifications will be similar to that of the GranTurismo MC coupe, which means it will be powered by a 444-horsepower variant of the brand's Ferrari-based V-8 engine.

No word yet as to if or when it will become available in North America.
