Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale now seats four

By Ameya Naik | on February 28, 2013

Looks like Maserati has been listening to their customers and the demands of the market. Why else would they make the updated GranTurismo MC Stradale a four-seater? Yes, you read it right. The car which takes inspiration from the racing version which competes in the Maserati MC Trofeo racing series, will get two rear seats compared to its predecessor which only had front seats.

This also means that the latest upgrades will go into the GranTurismo MC Stradale. A new carbon fibre hood, forged alloy wheels and carbon ceramic brakes from Brembo along with the new forged 20-inch alloy wheels. However, no major change has been made under the hood as it still gets the 4.7-litre V8, but this one churns 10bhp more. The additional power takes the tally to 460bhp.

The transmission remains Maserati’s six-speed automated manual box, which is mated to the more powerful V8 and now boasts of a top speed of 302km/h. The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale will make its European debut at the Geneva Motorshow.
