It’s the sun-affectionate sister to the 2008 Gran-Turismo coupe and the 1st hard-top translatable from a much fancied Italian auto producer. In all, Maserati’s most recent Spyder stares like the best ever in the tag line yet.
What we scrambled to Know about the 2010 Maserati Spyder:
After decades of red ink and expensive patchiness, Maserati is firmly in the back with coupés that many stare as the most excellent this marquee has ever busted out. In particular, the 2-year-old Quattro-porte (that means “four door”) sedan, the newest in a line broadening back to the 1960s, has been a huge image and sales vaccination for the Italian concert icon.
Folding crown aside, the 2010 Maserati Spyder will split most rudiments with the Gran-Turismo coupe (slotted to institute sale in summer 2008). Both utilize a condensed version of the Quattro-porte podium with its 4-wheel dual wishbone suspension unit, huge disc brakes, and an aluminum 4.2-liter dual cam V8 motor, all planned with assistance from corporate stable mate Ferrari the brand for prancing horse.
Like its sedan counterpart, the 2010 Maserati Spyder is bigger than it glances in pictures, measuring 192 inches in length and almost 73 inches wide over a sleekly 115.8-inch wheelbase. Regardless of the munificent sizing, both variants are 2+2s with restricted back-seat space. They’re also reasonably grave at over 2 tons, thanks partially to all-steel edifice, hitherto Maserati asserts the GT coupe accomplishes 0-60 mph in just under 5.1 seconds and sprints all the way up to 177 mph. If one source is right, the Spyder may be little if any slower, as it’s tipped to use more lightweight materials, thus offsetting the extra weight of the convertible-top hardware.
