Official: Maserati GranTurismo MC – US Only

Official Maserati GranTurismo MC - US Only

Maserati has introduced a taste of the race-bred GranTurismo MC Stradale’s magic to North America with the GranTurismo MC at the New York Motor Show 2011.

The GranTurismo MC is the fastest production car Maserati has ever sold in the US market. With a top speed of 298km/h and a 0-100km/h time of just 4.9 seconds, the GranTurismo MC is only 3km/h slower than the ultra-aggressive MC Stradale, even though it is aimed at a slightly more luxurious market.

The major difference between the MC Stradale and the GranTurismo MC is in the transmission. Where the MC Stradale boasts the fastest gearshift in the world, the GranTurismo MC has a full automatic transmission in production.

Maserati has custom developed the GranTurismo MC to deliver US customers the increased power, improved handling and aerodynamic gains of the GranTurismo MC Stradale without challenging their tastes for automatic transmissions and four-seat practicality.

Powered by the 4.7 liter all-alloy V8 engine, this engine delivers 331kW at 7,000rpm and, with 510Nm at 4,750rpm, another 20Nm of torque compared to the GranTurismo S Automatic.

    :-) I didnt get it because it was fast i got it for the death grip it holds on corners

    Yeah I know, I’m just saying this thing for being a supposedly fast maserati is not that impressive. I do think the styling is decent though.

    Here comes Rick and his……..2001 911 to spoil things. j/k.

    Unless it’s a turbo your 911 is actually slower. It got 5.0 / 0-60MPH new. and 100KMH is 62MPH and you’d need to hit it with a 10 yr old car.

    Ughh what about the MC12 that thing was considerably quicker and considerably faster. And 4.9 Secs really isn’t anything to write home about my 2001 911 goes 0-60 in 4.9 secs. Looks better though.

    Really for the money there’s other, better options.
