About this creation
Here is my latest and possibly my greatest MOC. The Gran Turismo Convertible is an two-door 2+2 car produced by Maserati. It is also called the Gran Turismo GranCabrio. It is powered by the same 4.7 liter V8 that is in the S version. It produces 434 Horsepower. Despite its 220 pound weight gain, it still maintains the coupe's 49/51 weight distribution. The Gran Turismo Convertible will accelerate from 0-60 MPH in 5.2 seconds and it will keep going until you reach 177 MPH.


The history of Maserati

Maserati was founded on December 1914 by Alfieri, Ettore, and Ernesto Maserati. At first, the company made only race cars. One of the most succesful race car that was made by Maserati is the 1957 250F. On one of its races, the Maserati driver Juan-Manuel Fangio was at one point, a whole minute behind the leading car. But he was able to break the lap record ten times and he finished in first place. Later on, the Maserati brothers sold their company to the Orsi family. But in 1968, the Orsi family sold the company to Citroën. However, money issues caused Citroën to loose their relationship with Maserati. But the Italian goverment bought Maserati. In 1993, Fiat Auto bought Maserati and began to produce new models.

The Lego version weighs 1 pound and 4.8 ounces. The roof adds an additional 0.6 ounces.


The front.




Side. Unfortunately, I didn't didn't have stickers to use for the three small ducts which cool the engine on the side of the car.







Rear. This is my favorite part of the car. It was also the hardest part to build because the rear lights is an odd shape.












The doors can open.
















The hood can open as well.
















The 434HP engine







The opened trunk.







That small circle is a glow in the dark piece. So when the trunk is opened at a dark area, you can see the trunk.













Everything is open.



















Bird's eye view.







Interior.










The front seats are adjustable so you can access the rear seats.










The roof is on. Unfortunately I didn't know how to make the roof fold into the trunk.

Quoting Ryan Link Hey, nice car! I like how you built the rear lights, the shaping on those is tricky but you did it well. I also like the opening features and the convertible roof. Nice work!
Thanks!!

It's difficult to capture the curves of a car like this at this scale - this is pretty good.

some of your other cars are alright.... but this is a great car! i think you captured the back very well. Now about the windshield: I understand why you did it and it looks great...from the outside. Obviously you had to use the white pieces, and its hard not to show them in a convertible. Excellent job, i would appreciate if you could give me any tips on my cars. thanks

Very good! I like the back and front, the window could use some work, but then again I never saw anyone build a brick-built window and show the inside of it before.

Beautiful work on this despite the blocky pieces! But you haven't gotten the side of the maserati quite like it is it needs to be sort of something - I can't quite get what.
