Paris Preview: MASERATI GRANTURISMO MC STRADALE image

The new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale will be the fastest, lightest and most powerful car in the Maserati range when it goes on sale in the first quarter of 2011.

Inspired by the Trofeo GranTurismo MC and the race-winning GT4 motorsport models, the two-seater Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale that will debut at the Paris Auto Show will feature razor-sharp handling and will break the 300km/h barrier.

The GranTurismo MC Stradale produces more aerodynamic down force without producing more aerodynamic drag, it produces more power – 336kw, 450 hp. without using more fuel and it is more agile without sacrificing the GranTurismo S’s highly praised ride quality.

It is powered by the 4.7-litre V8 engine that’s in the Granturismo S, uprated from 433bhp to 444bhp.

It’s expect to cost more than £100,000. which is around 20 per cent higher than the S’s list price.
