Novitec Tridente Maserati tuning package for GranTurismo MC Stradale

The sportiest model from the series Maserati GranTurismo, MC Stradale, comes out with some new improvements made by the global leader in automobile tuning, NOVITEC TRIDENTE. This "monster" features a supercharged engine that produces 646bhp (475 Kw) at 7500rpm, which can lead to a fabulous acceleration of 3.9 seconds from 0 to 100km/h, 11.4 seconds from 0 to 200 km/h and the speed goes up to an astonishing value of 306km/h (even 330km/h in longer gearing). Another improvement is the lowered ride-height by 25mm and a lightweight design. The 4.7 litter, 8 cylinder , 4-valve-V engine is equipped with a supercharger system that uses an innovative method of cooling: it uses a water-to-air intercooler, connected to a dedicated water circuit with two heat exchangers, which keeps the ideal temperature. The appearance of MC Stradale is upgraded with a staggered custom-tailored tire-wheel combination, which supposes 21-inch wheels in the front shaft and 22-inch alloy wheels in the rear one. The steering, braking and cornering forces are successfully transferred by the Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires, with sizes from 255/30 ZR 21 in the front to 315/25 ZR22 in the back. All these improvements imply a better road performance and an exemplary engine longevity.
