Maserati GranTurismo details:
The Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale responds to demands for a Maserati Granturismo which can balance on-road driving needs with race-driving desires and it incorporates the handling and aerodynamic lessons from Maserati's three racing programs. It produces more aerodynamic down force without producing more aerodynamic drag, it produces more performance without using more fuel and it is more agile without sacrificing the Maserati Granturismo S's highly praised ride class.
With 330kw (450 horsepower), the Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale generates more performance (7 Kw, 10hp) from the 4. 7-litre V8 motor than the Maserati Granturismo S, while its 510nm of torque is a further 20nm improvement. Its race-bred heritage is highlighted by a 110kg weight reduction from the Maserati Granturismo S, down to 1770kg. It mirrors Maserati's racing pros by retaining an optimal 48 : 52 weight distribution, ensuring balanced handling and even tyre wear.
The Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale uses advanced controls to cut gear-shift times from the updated MC Race Shift electro-actuated transaxle gearbox to just 60 milliseconds. This all helps to slash the 0-100km/h sprint time, which the Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale covers in just 4. 6 seconds.
