Maserati Spyder

The Maserati Coupé and Spyder are grand tourers from 2002 to 2007. They have now been replaced by the GranTurismo.

The Spyder is a soft-top convertible that is electronically operated by a pushbutton on the center console. The top automatically stows beneath a hard cover that sits flush with the body in front of the trunk. Both deployment and stowage of the top takes about 30 seconds.

The Coupé and Spyder utilize the same vehicle systems – engine, transmission, suspension, and interior driver and front passenger controls and safety equipment.

Both the Coupé and Spyder have a light alloy double wishbone suspension. The rear suspension is fitted with a toe-in regulator bar, which enhances the precision of the drive train and provides balanced cornering. The front suspension layout incorporates “anti-dive” features to prevent nose-diving when braking. The suspension system is completed by front and rear anti-roll bars.
