Maserati Sales Spike 48 Percent in 2010 as GranTurismo Convertible Sells Out

It’s official, the economic recovery is complete. Don’t believe us? Just ask the folks at Maserati, who were able to sell every single GranTurismo Convertible that landed States-side in 2010. In total, Maserati shifted 1,717 units this year, which included 558 units of this gorgeous convertible.

The GranCabrio – as most of you will know, has a Ferrari-developed 4.7-liter, V8 that produces a healthy 440-hp. Power is sent to the rear-wheels via a six-speed automatic with paddle-shifters.

Asking if it’s fast is like asking if Michigan winters are cold. It can accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 5.4 seconds, and if you find a runway long enough, it will top out at 176 mph.

Sadly, at a base price of $135,800 it is out of reach for most people, however, Maserati had no problem finding customers in 2010. That’s a big turnaround from last year where sales plummeted 49 percent.
