An exotic car built to push performance to the edge while blending Italian elegance is crafted inside Maseratis ultimate factory. It takes 22 days for a Maserati to be assembled and considered road ready and the Maserati Gran Cabrio, a $135,000 convertible that tops out at more than 170 mph, is the new pinnacle of performance and comfort. Parts are assembled in Torino, Italy, while Maserati engines, made by Ferrari, are delivered to Modena, Italy. Another nine days are spent inspecting and testing each finished car. Then each car must pass a grueling series of road tests on both local streets and highways as well as on Maseratis own cobblestone test track before it is ready to be shipped across the world.
