Maserati Unveils Four-Seat MC Stradale

News I By Brandon Turkus I February 28, 2013
Remember the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale? We reviewed it way back in Winding Road Issue 63. For those not in the know, the MC Stradale is the road-going version of the Trofeo racecar, which is in turn based on the road-going GranTurismo S. So, it’s the street-legal version of a vehicle that is a racing version of a street vehicle. Confusing, we know.
Formerly limited to just two passengers, Maserati has seen fit to unveil a four-seat Stradale ahead of the Geneva Motor Show. Maserati also promises some tweaked interior materials and styles for Stradale two-plus-two.
Besides spawning an extra pair of seats, there’s not much else going on here. The four-seat MC Stradale is motivated by a sexy, Italian V-8 that produces 460 horsepower (up from 443 when we originally tested it) from its 4.7 liters of displacement. Combined with a six-speed MC Race Shift automatic gearbox, the MC Stradale can reach a top speed of 188 miles per hour. 60 mph should arrive in the 4.4-second range. It’ll also looks positively spectacular while doing it.
The four-seat Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale makes its official debut at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.
