Maserati presented the new GranTurismo MC Stradale at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The new car, inspired by the Trofeo GranTurismo MC and the race-winning GT4 motorsport models, will be the fastest, lightest and most powerful car in the Maserati range. With 330kW (450 horsepower), the new Maserati generates more power (7 kW, 10hp) from the 4.7-litre V8 engine than the GranTurismo S, while its 510Nm of torque is a further 20Nm improvement. Its race-bred heritage is highlighted by a 110kg weight reduction from the GranTurismo S, down to 1770kg. The new Maserati uses advanced electronics to cut gear-shift times from to just 60 milliseconds. This helps to slash the 0-100km/h sprint time in just 4.6 seconds. The car will go on sale in the first quarter of 2011.
