2013 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale restyling

Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale has been recently subjected to a stylistic update and will soon make its official début at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show (7th-17th March) with a whole new look, which carries the main modifications to the front section.

The hood now comes with a large central air intake made entirely of carbon fibre, which gives the car a more aggressive and sharp look. In this regard, Maserati reveals that the GranTurismo MC Stradale takes inspiration from the racing version that competes in the Maserati MC Trofeo. The bumper does not benefit from any touch-up and keeps the same boomerang-shaped air vents, while the headlights are equipped with LED daytime running lights.

The rear is characterised by a new sport focused bumper, which employs a generous extractor that includes a pair of pipes. The car is also equipped with new 20-inch alloy wheels with five double spokes design. Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale features the same naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V8 engine producing 460 hp, which was previously introduced on the GranTurismo Sport and is mated to the same 6-speed MC Race Shift transmission.

The Italian manufacturer hasn't officially revealed performance figures yet, with the exception of maximum speed, which is a mighty 303 km / h (188mph). The braking system employs carbon-ceramic brake discs from Brembo. Maserati finally puts emphasis on the extreme usability of the passenger compartment, "which includes four comfortable seats and newly revised interiors in terms of materials and design."

Maserati will be displaying the new GranTurismo MC Stradale at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show along with the European première of the Quattroporte.
