2010 Top Gear Awards: Cabriolet of the Year
Gorgeous 440bhp V8 Maserati GranCabrio shatters the peace in rural China...
Posted: 14 Jan 2011
There is a silky, breathless silence in the hills above Lianhuachi. Low, winter sun flows around spindly pines, and pierces stands of unfamiliar shrubs, warming patches of tarmac here and there as the road slinks its way to the summit. In a cold corner of shade, where the air is icy in the lungs and dry on the lips, the Maserati GranCabrio squats motionless, deep-blue paintwork almost a camouflage.
