Maserati has added some street racer appeal to its GT range with the MC concept bodykit.Already boasting some of the most arresting automotive styling in world, the Gran Turismo has now added track bred aerodynamic efficiency thanks to the MC concept bodykit. Road kill scooping front splitterThough many will surely question the validity of those new front air intakes – which come perilously close to spoiling the proportions of the delicate GT front styling – the new fenders and bonnet (with no less than three air intakes) manage to blend well with the overall car profile. Along the flanks you’ll notice the unusual air vents which reside in the mini-skirts under the large profile coupe doors and at the back centrally located exhausts are mounted in a new fender, finished off by a rear spoiler. Working in unison with the aggressive front splitter the rear spoiler provides optimal airflow management balance at high speed. Aim of the MC concept is to evaluate the aerodynamic tuning potential of the GT range; and obviously seeing how far Maserati can push potential customers to pay a premium for some future bodywork cut-out items on their standard cars.Revised V8Mechanically a new exhaust system, revised intake manifold and engine remapping has raised power impressively to 331kW and toque to 510Nm. A racing spec cone air filter and high-flow catalytic converter system should ensure acoustics are commensurate with the aesthetic presence of the MC concept.Interior is pure racer, stripped of all the Fiat parts-bin standard trim and strengthened with a FIA specification roll-cage. Featuring a composite body overall mass is down to 1 400kg. Translating the weight saving program into tangible handling benefits are new single-set racing dampers and 18-inch mags shod with slick tyres. Brakes are unshackled from ABS boosting for more precise feel, and measure 380mm up front and 313mm at the rear.Though only conceptual for its debut at the Paris motor show, you can be sure some of the modifications form the MC concept are sure to find their way down to the standard GT model range in time.
