Maserati has launched a hardcore version of the GranTurismo called the MC Stradale. The car will be making its live debut in Paris.
Not much details have been said yet, but they claim it will be the lightest and most powerful car in the Maserati range, with 450 hp under the hood. They also say it will have more downforce without more aerodynamic drag, unaffected fuel economy, and improved handling without affecting ride quality. Lastly, the top speed is said to be over 300 kph.
More information will likely be revealed at the Paris Motor Show. We’ll be waiting.
THE NEW MASERATI GRANTURISMO MC STRADALE TO DEBUT AT PARIS AUTO SHOW
Modena, September 20, 2010. The new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale will be the fastest, lightest and most powerful car in the Maserati range when it goes on sale in the first quarter of 2011.
Inspired by the Trofeo GranTurismo MC and the race-winning GT4 motorsport models, the two-seater Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale that will debut at the Paris Auto Show will feature razor-sharp handling and will break the 300km/h barrier.
The GranTurismo MC Stradale responds to demands for a GranTurismo which can balance on-road driving needs with race-driving desires, incorporating the handling and aerodynamic lessons from Maserati’s three racing programs.
The GranTurismo MC Stradale produces more aerodynamic down force without producing more aerodynamic drag, it produces more power – 336kw, 450 hp – without using more fuel and it is more agile without sacrificing the GranTurismo S’s highly praised ride quality.
