Maserati, as always, will be displaying some incredibly luxurious sports cars at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, and this year, the display will begin with the new Quattroporte and end with the world debut of the four-seater 2014 GranTurismo MC Stradale. Their lineup is always a surprise, but still is reminiscent of the class Maserati models that helped develop the auto company into what it is today.
The 2014 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is the epitome of luxury and sportiness. It will be manufactured in Modena at the historic Viale Ciro Menotti plant. The Quattroporte, on the other hand, will be the first Maserati manufactured at the AVV Giovanni Agnelli plant in Turin.
But the focus at the Geneva Motor Show will likely be on the GranTurismo MC Stradale. Based off of the racing version that competes at the Maserati Trofeo Championship, it is essentially a race car that seats four and is legal to drive on roads. As with most Maseratis, the 2014 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale perfectly balances sportiness, luxury, comfort, and functionality.
The exterior features some new additions that increase the elegance and class of the car. With a carbon fiber bonnet that frames the central air intake and with new forged 20-inch alloy wheels, the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is sexier and even more aesthetically pleasing. The four-seat interior boasts comfortable seats and plenty of room. The interior also features some new materials and innovative style, but we’ll have to wait until the Geneva Motor Show to sneak a peak at that.
It’s no surprise that the GranTurismo MC Stradale boasts a 4.7-liter 460 horsepower V-8 engine. That is the same engine that debuted in the Maserati GranTurismo Sport. The engine is paired with an MC Race Shift 6-speed electro actuated gearbox, and together, they make it possible for the GranTurismo MC Stradale to reach its impressive top speed of 188 mph.
We have some of the details about the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale, but we don’t have all of them. From what we do know, though, it sounds like it will be the face of comfortable luxury sports cars.
