There are very few cars on the market these days that arouse so much passion and curious looks like this MC Stradale. Those from Maserati have wanted to give it a last? Turn of nut to its successful Gran Turismo with a more own version to compete in circuits than to stroll along the street. Its inspiration is evident: the models GT4 motorsport and the Trofeo Gran Turismo. Its performance is spectacular as it is the most powerful of the whole range (450hp) and reaches 301 km / h. But the most important thing is that it weighs 110 kg less than the Gran Turismo S with 440 HP.
This thinning cure has meant you to stay at 1,670 kg. Its acceleration capacity is obviously surprising. The impact of braking, the same, thanks to its Brembo ceramic carbon brakes. But if something catches the eye (in addition to the ‘snorting’ of the escapes) is the response of the change. It is the most modern box in the history of the brand; it is transaxle electronics typical of competition, as it manages to move from one relationship to another in 60 milliseconds. In addition, it is also the first to incorporate a ‘Race’ model that adds to the ‘Auto’ and ‘Sport’.
It is spectacular how the car varies its behavior depending on the mode in which it is being driven. In the ‘Sport’ mode you can only change gears by means of the huge cams behind the steering wheel at a speed of 100 milliseconds and above 4,000 rpm the valve is opened to make the exhaust sound more forceful. Before going to ‘Race’ it is necessary to have heated the car and, once achieved, to accelerate the accelerator more than 80% to achieve effectiveness in the program.
For the exterior design, the designers have strived to achieve good aerodynamics. It is longer than the GT S (48 mm) thanks to the new front bumper divider and rear bumper. A new ‘spoiler’ protrudes into the trunk door in order to generate high-speed downforce. Other novelties are the 20-inch wheels exclusive to this model.
The interior would delight any pilot who cares and look where you look or poses the hand you will find Alcantara leather and aluminum that get it maintain a double personality: sporty and elegant. The front seats are of sexy type with the printed logo and, behind, highlights the absence of seats in order to optimize the weight. Optionally, it is possible to attach anti-roll bars, which include four-point safety belts that are attached to the crossbar of the rear bar, as in the competition models. If you want to curl the curl Maserati provides you with a racing kit that includes monkey and racing glove, plus helmet.

Finally, and to never go unnoticed, there is the possibility of placing the logo with the trident in red and gray with a slope of 45 degrees for the roof that reminds of the design of the MC12, several times winner of the FIA GT1 World Championship. The base price of the car should not worry the real interested in this car: 173.278 dollars as a base. The aim of the brand is to sell 500 units in two years in the main countries except the US, Canada and Korea.
