At the front, the GranCabrio Folgore features vertical lights and the iconic Trident logo. Moving to the rear, the GranCabrio Folgore boasts eye-catching LED taillights inspired by the GranTurismo.

For wheels, it offers a range of options with six different designs and four finishes available.

Additionally, the brake calipers, available in black and anodized dark copper can be further customized, offering a choice of four additional colors: white, blue, yellow, and anodized red.

With a color palette consisting of six elegant options—Bianco Astro, Nero Assoluto, Blu Modena, Verde Giada, Grigio Incognito, and Grigio Maratea Matte, the car is all about individuality.
