The Maserati GranCabrio will cost £95,630 on-the-road here in the UK, and the first right-hand drive examples will reach showrooms in April 2010.
According to the company, "the GranCabrio continues the Maserati tradition in open-top cars and joins models which have played an important role in the Modena carmaker's history such as the A6G Frua Spyder (1950), the 3500GT Vignale Spyder (1960), the Mistral Spyder (1964), the Ghibli Spyder (1968) and the Spyder designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro (2001), the car that marked Maserati's return to the United States.
"Whilst following in the footsteps of tradition, the GranCabrio opens a new chapter, because never before have four-seater convertibles been produced at the Viale Ciro Menotti Maserati factory."
The dashboard, door panels and rear side panels are available in the new 'Dark Chrome' standard finish but it is also possible to choose from precious woods, such as Carbalho and Moonwood, or coloured lacquer finishes.
In addition to the wide range of options, a bespoke four-piece leather luggage set which fits perfectly into the boot is available to order for a paltry £3.5k.
