Car of the day – 2011 Maserati Grancabrio 4.7-liter V8 434 bhp 1920×1080 HD

The 2011 Maserati Grancabrio features a 4.7-liter V8 engine. The engine can produce up to 434 bhp (319 kW) at 7000 rpm and torque of 361 lbs-ft (489 Nm) at 4700 rpm.

This convertible beauty can reach a top speed of 175 mph (281.6 km/h) and 171 mph (275.2 km/h) with the roof down. Definitely a good idea to drive so fast in a hot summer’s day, but the idea is good just for reducing the heat only, other than that it’s kind of a crazy idea. The car can reach not just a high top speed, but it also accelerates very quickly. You easily can reach from 0 to 100 km/h or ~0-60 mph in just 5.4 seconds.

In case you are lazy with shifting gears or not very good with manual transmission cars, this one comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The car also comes with a rear-wheel drive system, so it’s definitely a fun car if you know what i mean. Probably you do know what i mean if you’ve ever driven a powerful car with a rear-wheel drive system. It is fun on the corners if you push the pedal little harder.

This 2 door Maserati maybe looks like it’s not a big car, but it’s kind of heavy for its size. The car weighs 1980 kg (4365 lbs). However, with all this weight it’s still a very fast modern sports car.

The original price (MSRP) for the base model of this 2011 Maserati Grancabrio was set at around £98,250 (GBP) or little over 150,000 USD ($). Price in 2013 for this car goes for about £57,000 (GBP) or about 87,000 USD ($). The price was calculated by including an average mileage of 20,000 miles/year and in good overall condition of the car.
