Maserati GranTurismo MC goes Stateside
Maserati introduces a taste of the race-bred GranTurismo MC Stradale’s magic to North America with the GranTurismo MC – the fastest production car Maserati has ever sold in the US market, with a top speed of 298km/h (185mph) and a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of just 4.9 seconds: That's only 3km/h slower than the ultra-aggressive MC Stradale, even though the GranTurismo MC is aimed at a slightly more luxurious market. The major difference between the MC Stradale and the GranTurismo MC is in the transmission: With the MC Stradale getting "the fastest gearshift in the world," and the the GranTurismo MC getting "one of the fastest shifts of any full automatic transmission in production," say Maserati. The GT MC will be powered by the latest development of the 4.7-litre all-alloy V8 engine, with 331 kW (443bhp) at 7000rpm and 510Nm at 4750rpm, and also has aerodynamic and suspension tweaks, carried over from the GranTurismo MC Stradale. What will America think? We likey... especially that front end and in white, with black rims.
