The fuel efficiency gain comes from the carmaker's Friction Reduction Program, which, if it's the same as used in the EU version of the GranTurismo MC Stradale, uses "Diamond-Like Carbon Coating" on the camshaft lobes and a few other tweaks. The 2011 Maserati GranTurismo Convertible is rated at 12 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
