General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Maserati Gran Cabrio Sport 4.7L V8 (2014)
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Maserati Gran Cabrio Sport 4.7L V8 (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
3.Has rear-wheel drive
Maserati Gran Cabrio Sport 4.7L V8 (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
4.drivetrain warranty (years)

2yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
5.turn radius

12.3m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
6.Euro NCAP rating

5

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) carries out safety tests for new vehicles, providing an overall rating for each car’s safety. It covers different areas such as safety for an adult occupant, child occupant or pedestrian.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.98kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.wheelbase

2.94m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
3.length

4.88m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
4.cargo volume

173l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
5.width

1.92m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.height

1.35m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Speed

1.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

5.2s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
2.top speed

285km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
3.coefficient of drag

0.33Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.maximum torque

510Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
3.fuel economy (highway)

9.8l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.horsepower

450hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.fuel economy (combined)

14.5l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
6.fuel economy (city)

22.5l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.screen size (in-car system)

7"

A bigger screen size for the in-car system provides a better user experience and is easier to use while driving.
2.Has ISOFIX/LATCH

ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
3.Has smart key as standard
Maserati Gran Cabrio Sport 4.7L V8 (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
4.Has in-car system
Maserati Gran Cabrio Sport 4.7L V8 (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
5.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Maserati Gran Cabrio Sport 4.7L V8 (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
6.Has a rear-view camera
Maserati Gran Cabrio Sport 4.7L V8 (2014)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
