Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale was released

GranTurismo MC Stradale was designed in order to be a racier and sportier version of Maser`s big Coupe and to handle better without losing ride quality, to be more powerful without losing fuel economy and to plant itself harder without adding any drag.
The hood hides a Ferrari sourced 4.7-liter V8 that develops 450 hp and 510 Nm / 376 lb ft of torque. It weighs 100 kg less, meaning 1,770 kg.
Italians consider that the MC Stradale is the first road-going Maserati to break the 300 km/h (186 mph) barrier.
An “electro-actuated” transmission gives power to the car, shifting in a scant 60 milliseconds. The inside shows a simplified version by losing the rear seats and by picking up some racing buckets. Although it has an “Auto” and “Sport” mode, it is the first mode found in a road-going Maserati.
A plain good looks, less weight come to complete the exterior, together with a new front splitter, front and rear bumpers, side sills, hood and exhaust tips.
One can see it on road starting from next February unless one does not live in the US, Canada or Korea.
