Video: Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale joins the 2011 Maserati line image

The 2011 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is the regular GranTurismo’s crude, hairy-chested brother.

With 330kW (450 horsepower), the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale generates more power (7 kW, 10hp) from the 4.7-litre V8 engine than the 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 GranTurismo S, down to 1770kg. It mirrors Maserati’s racing advantages by retaining an optimal 48 : 52 weight distribution, ensuring balanced handling and even tyre wear.

The MC Stradale is the latest creation from the Italian automaker. And to tie the family together, the Italian automaker has released this video that showcases the MC against a backdrop that also includes the standard GranTurismo coupe, the GranCabrio (known here as the GranTurismo Convertible) and the Quattroporte flagship.
