Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale
The Trident marque has catered to a more luxury-oriented market than the raw performance of its big brother on the Prancing Horse. But that doesn’t mean they can’t push the envelop just a little, and that’s what you’re looking at here.
Called the MC Stradale, this ultimate version of the GranTurismo bridges the gap between road and race models in the same way the revolutionary Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale did in its day. To get there, Maserati’s tuned the chassis, aero and engine to more closely resemble the levels attained on racing versions like the MC Trofeo spec racer and the GT4 competition model.
Modena claims increased downforce without a the combersum increase of drag, while the engine has been boosted to 450 horsepower as compared to the 430 in the existing GranTurismo S. That’s all Maserati has released at this point, read the press release after the video and check out the images in the gallery below.
