Yippee a fab looking four seater convertible ! Having criticized the lack of retractable hardtops in the previous, Audi R8 news item, we wandered into the next hall and found ourselves eating our words, as the Maserati GranCabrio had it’s roof up, windows down and top totty draped across one of four full size seats. An avalanche of dress spilled out of the drivers seat – canvas of sorts, of course! Now the sales pitch of having a canvas top is to store the garderobe of a supermodel in the cavernous trunk. But look here at the reality: a Volvo C70 beats it hands down for USEABLE boot space, despite its retractable roof. We stand by our words, if a Ferrari California can have one, why can’t others?
