LUXURY FOUR SEATER: The new GranTurismo MC Stradale boasts a luxury interior featuring new materials and updated style.

MODENA, Italy – Maserati will showcase its new Quattroporte and MC Stradale at the  2013 Geneva International Auto Show.

Maserati claims its new four seater GranTurismo MC Stradale  is “the optimum expression of sportiness combined with the luxury of a coupé made in Modena.”


Although the new Quattroporte is the first Maserati to be built at the new Giovanni Agnelli plant in Grugliasco (Turin), the GranTurismo MC Stradale will be built at the historic factory in viale Ciro Menotti in Modena.

The MC Stradale is inspired by the racing version which competes in the Maserati Trofeo Championship.

The new exterior has a sporty design and carbon fibred bonnet which frames a central air intake and two rear extractors. The model sports 20” alloy rims and Brembo carbon ceramic brake discs.

The model is powered by a 343kW 4.7 V8 which made its debut in the GranTurismo Sport and which is now fitted to the entire 4.7 litre GranTurismo range.

 Combined with an MC Race Shift six-speed manual, the model can rocket to a top speed 302km/h. The new model benefits from the work carried out on the latest engine range to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
