There’s only one way to say this so I’m just going to go ahead and say that this is one of the hottest cars to ever come out of Italy.
And to clarify, this isn’t just any version of the GranTurismo (a car that’s absolutely stunning in and of itself), but the MC Stradale – a much more track oriented animal.
The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale features a new front splitter and rear air dam for improved aerodynamics, downforce and cooling of the carbon ceramic brakes and engine. The mods add about 48 extra mm (2 inches) to the car’s total length.
It also sits closer to the ground than the regular GranTurismo S and on top of that it will also max out at 303 km/h (188 mph), which is pretty impressive.
In terms of acceleration, the MC Stradale will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds – which to be fair isn’t mind bending anymore but it will surely get the job done.
As for the looks, well, this was already one of the world’s best looking coupes so the fact that they strapped on a set of Vossen Forged VPS-306 wheels is even more of a good thing. The VPS-306 series wheels are the same ones we saw on this Mercedes AMG GT S, except that in a different color.
Bottom line, what’s not to love about this car? It’s got the looks, it’s certainly fast and most of all it will get your heart racing once you start revving its naturally aspirated V8 engine. It’s one of the world’s best sounding power units.
Note: The video description states that this is the GranTurismo MC Sportline, except that if you look at the front & rear spoiler and at the exhaust tips especially, you’ll see that it’s clearly the MC Stradale – unless the owner had it customized to look precisely like the Stradale. Without any confirmation, we’ll just call it like we see it.
