Lionel Messi Drives a Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale


While away from wowing the Nou Camp, Lionel Messi likes to spend time in exotic supercars.

Lionel Messi, arguably the greatest football (read: soccer) player of all time, has been spied whilst out driving a brand-new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale finished in a shade of white that matches his Audi R8 and Q7. The man with an eye for a goal seems to have a keen eye for cars as well, the MC Stradale being the fastest, most powerful road car Maserati has produced since the Enzo-based MC12 homologation special.

Under the hood, the MC packs a 4.7-liter V8 engine that delivers of 444 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a ZF six-speed automatic transmission for a top speed of 187 mph and a sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds.
