Paris Motor Show 2010: Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale

At the Paris Motor Show 2010, the Italians have bewildered the arena with the most powerful weapon in their possession: Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale, a model inspired by racing cars.

The sports car enthusiasts are probably very excited to see the gorgeous Italian fireball debuting at Paris Motor Show.

The car represents the simple transposition of Maserati MC Trofeo and GT4 racing cars on the streets. Thus, the new GranTurismo MC Stradale has become the most powerful Italian coupe, surpassing the performances of GrandTurismo S.

The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale differentiates from the GranTurismo series car through its aggressive spoiler, with a unique aerodynamic splitter which offers it a truly beast look. Moreover, the fireball has received from the racing cars the thresholds and a large rear diffuser, which includes two large round exhaust pipes.

The engine of Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is the famous 4.7-liter V8, developing 450 bhp – a feature which allows MC Stradale to achieve a speed of 300 km/h. The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale uses advanced electronics to cut gear-shift times from the upgraded MC Race Shift electro-actuated transaxle gearbox to just 60 milliseconds. Therefore, the super car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.

Described as being the lightest, most powerful and fastest variant of the current Maserati range, the Italian super car represents the perfect balance of performance, looks and luxury.

You thought that was it? No way! The interior design, created in the typical Italian style, is close to perfection, the racing details being an exclusive appearance along the entire cockpit. The rear seats being removed, the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale becomes the first two-seat Maserati since MC12. The new MC Stradale is also equipped with new Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, custom-developed Pirelli tyres, a specialsuspension layout and light-weight, carbon-fibre race seats.
