Maserati to Debut Hotter GranTurismo Called MC Stradale
Maserati is debuting a faster and lighter version of the GranTurismo called the MC Stradale for the Paris Motor Show.

The MC Stradale's bodywork alone leaves no doubt that this is anything but an ordinary GranTurismo coupe. With "razor-sharp handling," Maserati says the MC Stradale will also break the 300 km/h barrier, or about 186 mph.

The automaker currently claims the regular GranTurismo coupe -- with a 405-horsepower 4.2-liter V-8 -- can reach a top speed of 177 mph. The GranTurismo S, with a 4.7-liter V-8 making 433 horsepower, hits a manufacturer-claimed 183 mph and ran from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds during our instrumented testing.

The GranTurismo MC Stradale takes things to a new level with a 450-horsepower engine and new styling bits that produce more downforce. Not a huge power jump, but Maserati says the car won't use more fuel than the other GranTurismo coupes but will be more agile and still have a decent ride. Upgraded brakes will likely be part of the package as well.

Update!

Novitec Maserati GranCabrio
The installation of a supercharger system along with a watercooled intercooler and a modified ECU, help boost output to an impressive 590HP at 7,300 rpm and 572Nm (421.9 lb-ft), consequentially allowing for a new 0-100km/h (0-62 mph) time of 4.5 seconds.

For those that don’t mind digging a bit deeper into their pockets, Novitec also offers a custom made stainless steel exhaust system and KW aluminum coilover sport suspension.

A Novitec tune wouldn’t be complete without a new set of alloy wheels (20-inch at the front and 21-inch at the back) and an aerodynamics package that includes a front spoiler, side skirts, a rear apron and a boot lid spoiler, all made out of carbon fiber.
