Maserati launches Maserati GranTurismo MC in the US with a little Modification
Italian sports car maker Maserati has introduced its soft version of GranTurismo MC Stradale, that drops the “Stradale” word from its name. the Car features full automatic gearbox instead of the original Race Shift transmission and two extra seats in the back instead of a roll cage. Maserati claims that the Granturismo MC is the fastest series production model Maserati has ever sold in America.
GranTurismo MC will provide a top speed of 298 km/h (185 mph) and a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 4.9 seconds, the GranTurismo MC is 3 km/h and 0.3 seconds slower than the Euro-spec MC Stradale. the cause is that the full automatic transmission can’t match the response of the Race Shift box and rear seats would add further weight to the Car.
The Maserati GanTurismo is equipped with 4.7-liter V8 engine delivering 450 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque at 4,750 rpm (20 Nm of torque more than the GranTurismo S Automatic).
Even though the GranTurismo may look like its European cousin sans the colored turn signals and the black mirror caps and door handles, the Modifiacation made to the GranTurismo MC for US is the way that suits to the taste of Consumers. Maserati GanTurismo MC launched at Maserati’s new showroom in the TriBeCa area of New York. the Pricing and production numbers of the Car yet to be revealed and hopes it soon.
