Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale (2013–)

Last updated 24 August 2016

One of the best looking GT cars around. Genuine four-seater, with space for adults in the rear. Comfortable for everyday use.
GranTurismo Sport is £20,000 cheaper and almost as good. Handling isn’t as sharp as some of its rivals. Automatic gearbox can be clunky and indecisive.

Introduction

With the advent of super saloons, like the BMW M5 and Audi RS7, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the era of exotic GT cars was over. After all, who needs a grand tourer, when you can buy executive saloons capable of 180mph? Well, the answer can be found behind the wheel of Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale.

Based on the standard GranTurismo, the MC Stradale combines a large and practical cabin with all the sights and sounds of an Italian supercar. Power comes from a naturally aspirated V8, sourced from Ferrari, with 460PS. The 4.7-litre engine is coupled to a six-speed electro-actuated ‘MC Race Shift’ transaxle gearbox, which will paddle its way from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds before reaching its peak at 188mph.

The powertrain offers the choice of automatic, sport and race modes, with each level delivering additional rewards by improving throttle response, the exhaust note and loosening the skid-control systems. Maserati has also trimmed the weight of the car to 1700kg and added a carbon-fibre bonnet to improve high-speed downforce and engine cooling.

The cabin is luxurious and practical, with generous helpings of leather and carbon fibre. Unlike the previous MC variants of the GranTurismo, the 2013 Stradale is a four seater, with enough room in the back for two large adults. The driving position is excellent and dash layout is straightforward. There are plenty of creature comforts too, with the option of a large touch screen multimedia system, air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity. The exterior of the car can be customised too, with coloured brake callipers, carbon spoilers and 20-inch wheels.

As you’d expect, the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale isn’t cheap, with prices starting at £110,000. However, if you want a truly awe inspiring grand tourer, with supercar performance, then it’s difficult to look beyond it.
