With a unique body design that is based around the requirements of the track,
the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale has borrowed heavily from its racing car
stablemates, the Maserati GranTurismo MC, both in the Trofeo and GT4
configurations. It has a new front splitter, bumper, bonnet, front guard panels,
sills, exhausts and even a new rear bumper. To emphasize the harder-edged nature
of the GranTurismo MC Stradale, Maserati even offers the car with an optional
roll cage and a four-point racing harness.
Yet it was also designed to be
easy to drive, so it retains all the inherent ride, handling and stability
benefits of the GranTurismo S's long wheelbase. It has the speed to be a
road-legal racing car, yet it has the progressive handling to be considered an
extremely usable super-sports car.
In this configuration, the Maserati
GranTurismo MC Stradale will be on sale in February 2011 in all major markets,
with the exceptions of the USA, Canada and Korea.
