Adding strength upon strength, the 2012 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible Sport shears the top off the GranTurismo S--or adds an S to the GranTurismo Convertible, looked at the other way. Either way, it looks great, especially in the sheetmetal.

It'll sound great, too, should you be lucky enough to get next to one, thanks to its 4.7-liter V-8 engine, a 450-horsepower unit shared, more or less, with Ferrari. It's enough to put the Maser 'vert well into hot sports car territory, if not quite supercar realms: 177 mph top speed (don't open your mouth with the top down) and what's sure to be dashing acceleration.
