Maserati’s performance bolstered by Stradale

11.02.2013

THE LATEST generation of Maserati models are set to take centre stage at the Geneva International Motor Show.

The new Quattroporte (which is now built at the new Giovanni Agnelli plant in Turin) as well as the GranTurismo MC Stradale four-seater are the two models to look out for.

The new four-seater Stradale takes inspiration from the racing GranTurismos that compete in the Trofeo Championship.

The MC Stradale is said to combine racing ability while retaining a level of usability on the road. Styling enhancements such as a carbon-fibre bonnet that frames a central air intake with two rear extractors and large 20-inch forged-alloy wheels set it apart from the rest of the range.

The GranTurismo MC Stradale will be built at the historic factory in Viale Ciro Menotti in Modena and retains the same 4.7-litre, 330 kW naturally aspirated Ferrari V8 as before.

Combined with the MC Race Shift six-speed electro-actuated gearbox, the performance figures see a top speed of 303km/h that can be enjoyed by four passengers now, rather than just two.

When it comes to stopping power, the MC Stradale features Brembo carbon-ceramic brake discs and in terms of planet saving, expect better fuel returns and lower carbon emissions.
