Maserati revamping its luxury sports line-up
Italian sports-car maker Maserati is revamping its luxury sports models, apart from the new Quattroporte, which is set to make its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Geneva will see the world debut of the new four-seater Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale. Although the new Quattroporte is the first Maserati to be built at the new Giovanni Agnelli plant in Grugliasco (Turin), the GranTurismo MC Stradale will be built at the historic factory in Viale Ciro Menotti in Modena.
Just like the previous two-seater version, the new four-seater MC Stradale takes its inspiration from the racing version which competes in the Maserati Trofeo Championship, offering a combination of sportiness, luxury and elegance, comfort and style, functionality and dynamism, Maserati said.
The new aesthetic exterior features, with their clear racing edges, are highlighted by the new carbon fibre bonnet which frames a central air intake and two rear extractors and by the new forged 20-inch alloy rims.
The new MC Stradale also boasts a cabin with an interior design featuring new materials and style. The vehicle has a 4.7-litre, 460hp normally aspirated V8 engine, which made its debut in the GranTurismo Sport and which is now fitted to the entire 4.7-litre GranTurismo range. Combined with an MC Race Shift 6-speed robotised manual gearbox, the engine ensures outstanding performance - with a top speed of 300 kmph - which can be enjoyed in the new four-passenger configuration. Stopping power is guaranteed by Brembo carbon ceramic brake discs. The new MC Stradale also benefits from the work carried out on the latest engine range to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
