We'll return soon with our impressions of how the six-figure 2018 Maserati GranTurismo Sport convertible drives, what it feels like to drive it and whether it's worth its significant price. But given that it hasn't undergone significant exterior updates in practically forever in car years — the GranTurismo first went on sale in the U.S. when the Ferrari 430 was in dealerships; that was replaced by the 458, which in turn was replaced by the current 488, which is getting long in the tooth — it should look somewhat out of place on today's roads.
And yet ... well, it doesn't. Just look at it. It's gorgeous. The wide mouth of the grille punctuated by the signature trident badge; the aggressive bulges of the front and rear fenders; the long-and-low hood that leads to a gracefully raked windshield; the short decklid that sits so much higher than the nose of the car, making the GranTurismo convertible look like it's ready to pounce. It's kiss-your-fingers beautiful.
Everything else about the car may or may not feel dated to people shopping for a six-figure convertible, depending on preference and experience. But the GranTurismo convertible's looks, and its naturally aspirated V-8 noise, will never get old.
