Maserati GranCabrio MC by Novitec Tridente

Luxury, sports and style are all reunited under a single name. This is the famous brand Maserati. Nearly a century of activity has brought with it glorious achievements both on the road and the track as well as more challenging times, which have helped forge the company’s character and personality. It produces vehicles that many people can just afford to dream at them. Some of them however, have the necessary pocket to possess such a splendid car. And there are tuning companies that exist to please the exclusivist clients. Such a company is the Novitec Tridente, specialized only in tuning Maserati cars. The latest project is based on the Maserati GranCabrio MC.

The tuned Maserati GranCabrio MC can be equipped with a ventilated hood, a sports exhaust system and the client can choose from a variety of wheels varying in size from 20 to 22 inches. The company can also provide a sport-tuned suspension with adjustable damper settings. A lift system which can raise the car’s body by 40mm at the push of a button is available on order.

Novitec Tridente also upgraded the engine of the Maserati GranCabrio MC. They placed a supercharger, an intercooler, larger injectors and a new intake manifold. All these make the 4.7-liter V8 engine capable of generating 646 HP (475 kW) and 624 Nm (460 lb-ft) of torque. This means an obvious increase of 186 HP (137 kW) and 104 Nm (76 lb-ft). This allows the car to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 11.4 seconds and to reach a maximum speed of 305 km/h (189 mph). After this tuning pack is set on the Maserati MC, the vehicle becomes even more powerful and attracts all looks.
