Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale

Starting with the first quarter of 20111, Maserati started to sell what they are calling "their lightest, fastest and most powerful car": the new Maserati GranTurismo MC, which is inspired from the well known Trofeo GranTurismo MC model. The car had its debut at the Paris Auto Show on the Spring of this year.

The new Maserati GranTurismo MC has only 2 seats and broke up the company's barrier of 300 kilometers per hour with its incredible speed. It has a perfect equilibrium between the on road driving needs and the rice-driving aspirations of any driver. This is done thanks to the incorporation of aerodynamic and handling lessons that Maserati learned from their race program. The car has a strong aerodynamic down force and produces no less than 450 HP with the same quantity of fuel.

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.
