The large opening in the engine hood is another functional feature that enhances the cars aerodynamics, adding character to the front of the car without detracting from the elegance of the bodywork, with its sinuous lines that dialogue with the air through the front spoiler, the side miniskirts and the slots in the front fenders, and guide its flows all the way to the extractor, also creating downforce.
AGGRESSIVE LOOKING DETAILS
The rear of the GranTurismo MC Stradale is immediately recognisable, with centrally located exhausts framed by the massive extractor designed to ensure efficient outflow from under the body. With the addition of DRL (Daytime Running Lights) LED technology, the front lights come in a feisty matt black finish, while the tail lights, also featuring led lamps, sport an exclusive burnished finish.
THE GLEAM OF A SPORTING PEDIGREE
The extremely dynamic look of the exteriors is underlined by the new 20 Trofeo Design wheels: as well as being lighter in weight, they incorporate design details typical of the Maserati tradition. A stylish finishing-touch is provided by the new triple-layer Grigio Lava (Pearl Grey) paintwork: this iridescent shade connects the curves of the bodywork to the aerodynamic openings with a beauty that changes with the light.
THRILLING POWER UNDERFOOT
The ZF 6-speed automatic gearbox with hydraulic torque converter guarantees an even more comfortable ride with no reduction in performance. The transmission is controlled by the MC Auto Shift software, with rev limiter override, double declutch and high-performance start function. There are five operating modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and Ice.
60 MILLISECOND GEAR SHIFTS
While the GranTurismo offers five electronic handling modes, the MC Stradale has three: Auto, Sport and the exclusive MC Race. This setup is unique to this model, and is activated by pressing the Race button on the dashboard. This is all it takes to make the car even more aggressive and sporty, and the six-speed gearbox allows lightning-fast gear shifts in just 60 milliseconds.
