Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale: Why You Should Pick One Over A Ferrari - CARFECTION2017
The Maserati GranTurismo was introduced in a replacement for the Coupe, which in turn was the first grand tourer developed under Ferrari ownership. Offered in both coupe and convertible body styles, the GranTurismo was designed by Pininfarina and launched with two V-8 engines co-developed with Ferrari. Although it was believed that the GranTurismo would be replaced altogether in in , Maserati launched a new update in Essentially a facelift, the model-year upgrade brings revised aerodynamics on the outside and new technology on the inside. The Italians also changed the drivetrain lineup, ditching the 4. Unfortunately, output remains unchanged, which means that the grand tourer might not be around for too long.

The screaming V8 loves to be revved and sounds especially vocal in Sport setting.
This, however, is no bad thing. The engine is built by Ferrari and is based on the motor used in the Modena, which in turn was a development of the F engine. That carbon dates the powerplant back to The front grille is deeper and is based on the one fitted to the Alfieri concept car. There are two versions of both coupe and convertible: the standard Sport and the MC, which stands for Maserati Corse. You can tell them apart because the grilles have different trim and the bonnet on the latter is carbon fibre and includes a smattering of vents and air scoops. The headlamps have new lamp units inside but are otherwise barely changed.
