Elegant and urbanite with an aggressive sporty edge, the GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition is a bold tribute to one hundred years of Maserati. The illustrious past of the House of the Trident is clearly present in the genetics of the model, yet this GranTurismo also paves the way for future generations.
STILL WATERS RUN DEEP
Despite its traditional GranTurismo silhouette, this centennial edition stands apart from its forbears. The new Rosso Magma colour was designed to achieve the appearance of motion, even when the car is stationary. Applied in three coats, the shade varies subtly depending on the light to reveal deep undertones of purple and blue: perfection at 0km/h. The alternative launch shade, Blu Inchiostro, represents a stunning visual reference to both Maseratis home city of Bologna and its iconic oval emblem. Five further paintwork colours are also available, ensuring a truly personalised experience for every driver.
THE GRANTURISMO: A SPORTSMAN AT HEART
The GranTurismo MC Stradale Maserati Centennial Special Edition is powered by the 460 HP, 4.7 litre V8 that first appeared in the GranTurismo Sport, combined with a robotised, 6-speed MC Race Shift gearbox that guarantees superb performance and a top speed of 303 km/h. This highly innovative engine is designed to adapt to the driving environment, emitting a discreet purr in an urban setting and powerful roar on the open road.
HARNESSING THE POWER OF A V8
Hydraulic transmission makes full use of the engines power: the auto-adaptive automatic gearbox delivers top performance at low and medium engine speeds without restricting power at high rpm. It also allows gear shifts to be postponed to up to 7.100 rpm, higher revs than almost any other automatic transmission in the world. The model offers three operating modes for responsive sports handling: Normal Automatic, Sport Manual and Race Manual.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY IN EVERY DETAIL
For one hundred years, Maserati has prided itself on its innate ability to push the boundaries of automotive engineering. Drivers of this centennial model will enjoy an optimised weight distribution and innovations such as the Brembo braking system and Maserati Stability Programme. The latter is an advanced electronic system which, in the event of skidding, reduces torque and triggers the brakes to stabilise the car almost instantly.
