Maserati debuts its amazing GranTurismo MC

After the MC Corse Concept debut last year, now Maserati has revealed the GranTurismo MC production. The GranTurismo MC will rival on the class GT4 European Cup, and comes full with a roll cage and racing slicks.

The MC wrap also comes with a carbon fiber body, Lexan windows, light-weight race wheels, racing seat featuring a 6-point harness plus a 120L tank with fuel – FIA approved all. Underhood, GranTurismo MC is using the familiar V8 4.7L of Maserati, but the Italian carmaker failed on talk about the output. MC Corse Concept unit sported 450 horsepower, you should be expecting a number close to that figure. Whatever its output is, the GranTurismo MC model will use a rear-mounted 6-speed syncromesh gearbox, full with the paddle-shifter.

Following the official debut at the “Media Days”FIA GT on the Paul Ricard circuit area, the Maserati GranTurismo MC auto will reach in October the market having a 135,000 Euro starting cost.
