Geneva Preview: Maserati Adds Two-More Seats to GranTurismo MC Stradale

When Maserati launched the GranTurismo MC Stradale back in 2010 at the Paris Motor Show, its goal was to create a more performance-orientated version of the Pininfarina-designed coupe, with more power, less weight and a stiffer suspension, which is why the Italians dropped the rear seats. Now, Maserati is getting ready to premiere a new sub-version of the GranTurismo MC Stradale that keeps the regular model’s four-seat configuration at next week’s Geneva Motor Show. Other than that (which of course, should bring an weight, though, Maserati hasn’t released an official figure yet), the 4-seater GranTurismo MC Stradale is identical to its 2013MY 2-seater sibling wearing the same exterior outfit highlighted by a carbon fibre bonnet that frames a central air intake, a rear diffuser and 20-inch forged alloy rims. The same applies under the hood with the 4-seater model featuring a 4.7-liter naturally-aspirated V8 pushing out 460PS (454hp) linked to an MC Race Shift 6-speed robotized manual gearbox, which allow for a top speed of 302km/h (188mph) that is identical to the 2-seater MC Stradale.
