Maserati has decided that Americans would rather race 911 GT3 RS's or Viper ACR's, and therefore wouldn't be too interested in the European-spec Gran Turismo MC Stradale, which gives the Gran Tourismo the kind of stripped-down race-ready treatment that many sports car manufacturers offer these days. No, Maserati has announced that American Trident devotees will have to make do with a Gran Turismo MC without the Stradale.
This means that although the MC will be fast (444hp and 0-60 in 4.6 seconds) it will not be track-ready. The MC may not be getting carbon-ceramic brakes or racing seats, but the MC does get some rather important aerodynamic tweaks. Hood vents now help to reduce underhood pressure and lift. A new and much more aggressive rear spoiler and diffuser increase rear downforce by 50 percent, while downforce is reduced by 25 percent in the front. No price has been announced yet.
