The new GranTurismo MC Stradale unveiled in Paris in a world premiere

30/09/2010 - Paris
Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S
Maserati choose the 2010 Paris Motorshow as the exclusive stage for the world premiere of the new GranTurismo MC Stradale, a model that draws its inspiration from the Trofeo models.

After briefly welcoming the watching public and motoring press, Maserati Chief Executive, Harald Wester, lifted the covers on the lightest, most powerful and highest performing roadgoing car ever produced by Maserati.

At first sight, the new model stands out for its refined elegance. Still, the car's sporty nature emerges in its twin, centrally-mounted exhausts and brake air vents on its flanks. On a technical level, the engineer's have created the perfect blend of the performance delivered by the 450 bhp, 4.7 litre V8 engine, the superb handling that characterises the entire GranTurismo range, and the impeccable class which here is enhanced with the exclusive materials used on the car's interior. Supple leather, soft Alcantara® and special hi-tech carbon fibre and aluminium detailing catch the eye in the twin-seat interior. Inside, occupants enjoy superior levels of comfort and can create their own unique car thanks to almost endless range of personalisation options.

Another distinctive feature of the new GranTurismo MC Stradale's racing heritage are the carbon-ceramic brakes developed by Brembo. The beauty of the unit can be appreciated when teamed with the new 20" MC Design wheel rims. The brakes deliver excellent performance and reliability and, together with other modifications to the spec, help make this car 110 kg lighter than the GranTurismo S model.
The GranTurismo MC Stradale also plays a starring role on the web.
At you can enjoy a video of the car's presentation and exclusive new images. You will also have the chance to use the car configurator where you can choose from the infinite combinations available to create your dream GranTurismo MC Stradale. To round things off, from 20 November and on a monthly basis thereafter, each section of the mini-site will be updated with new photographs and content.
