The new 542bhp Maserati GranCabrio Trofeo is here – and the convertible is the best way to drive with the wind in your hair.

The drop-top Maserati has made its hotly anticipated debut in V6 trim.

It’s the convertible version of its brand new Maserati GranTurismo, which dropped last year.

The fabric soft top – available in five colors – operates at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph) and is operated via the central touch display.

Its name is fairly self-explanatory – but it simply does what it says on the tin, following in the footsteps of its coupé sibling, with all the same underpinnings, overall design and trim structure. 

In the Maserati range-topping Trofeo trim (there will be no entry-level Modena variant), it’s what’s under the hood that’s most exciting.

It comes with the Italian luxury vehicle manufacturer’s Nettuno 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine.

For the uninitiated: that’s the same one you’ll find inside the MC20 supercar.

It boasts a hefty 542bhp and 479lb-ft of torque for all four wheels – and the noise to match that power.

With a 3.0-liter V6 powering the rear wheels, Maserati claims an acceleration to 97 km/h (60 mph) in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph).

Thats a tenth slower than the hardtop.

The only transmission option is the familiar eight-speed automatic.

Without much more information currently, what we do know is that the Maserati GranCabrio is “100 per cent made in Italy”.

It follows its GT predecessor in “offering a new and captivating version of the grand tourer par excellence”.

And, of course, being a ‘Cabrio’ it’s “ideal for travelling with company or alone with the wind in your hair”.

And, if that wind becomes a little too much, it can be redirected using an optional wind stopper.

This is only available if there’s nobody sitting in the rear two seats.

What you can use regardless, however, is a neck warmer delivering three levels of heat intensity, which is fitted as standard.

It’s forbear, the GranTurismo coupe is available as a full EV with 750bhp.

So we can probably expect a GranCabrio Folgore soon, too.

It’s set to rival the likes of the Ferrari Roma Spider and Bentley Continental GTC – of which, Jennifer Lopez is a fan.

Expect prices to start at around $215,000.
