With the recent unveiling of the new Ferrari GT car, the boys are back now testing at the Nürburgring with the new Maserati GranTurismo Spyder.

A year before the Maserati GranTurismo was revealed in Geneva 2007, retractable hardtop prototypes were spotted testing for a short period of time, but then development was put on hold as priority went to the new Ferrari California. With the recent unveiling of the new Ferrari GT car, the boys are back now testing at the Nürburgring with the new Maserati GranTurismo Spyder.

Just like the Ferrari California, the new Maserati Spyder is based on a shortened Maserati GranTurismo coupe platform. The Spyder will receive the same 405hp 4.2-liter Ferrari V8 engine and 6-speed ZF automatic transmission as the coupe.

The Maserati Spyder is expected to launch in 2009.
