Car Tech Video: Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale

0:58 /

Meet the new king of the Maserati lineup.

-Simple story here, the lightest, most powerful, and therefore fastest street Maserati on the market. It's the GranTurismo MC Stradale. The 4.7-liter V8 gets a bump to 450 horsepower, about a 30 point gain largely due to friction-reducing technologies inside. Gear shifts are programmed down to 60 milliseconds now and the throttle is said to be 30% more responsive and how it's been curved. It all means 0 to 60 in about 4.6 down from closer to 5. New body styling tweaks improved the downforce to keep all these glued on the road at the far end of performance. No rear seats, just a big old stiffening strut back there and a place for some bags. Pricing won't be said until closer to this car's early 2011 release. But if you're learning about it from this video, you're not in the market.
