A true delight for sports car addicts, Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale will surely have a lot of fans. When Maserati and Novitec meet, only great things can happen. This is also the case for this juicy sports coupe that will make all eyes turn as you cruise down the streets.

Novitec does not need any presentation when it is about tuning – it simply makes miracles. But let`s see the result of this welcomed Italian collaboration!

Changes have been made not only under GranTurismo MC Stradale’s hood, but also to its aerodynamics. The central air scoop on the hood is flanked by large air vents, while the suspension springs has been lowered. Among other aerodynamic features, there are two 105mm black-coated or polished tailpipes, and a black-finish boot lid spoiler. The new set of 21″ and 22″ double-spoke design alloy wheels are protected by Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires.

The Italian tuning company added a new SUPERSPORT turbocharger to Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale, as well as a larger manifold, bigger injectors, remapped ECU and a new water-to-air inter cooler.

Thanks to all these improvements, the car`s 4.2 liter V8 engine is more powerful. The standard 450 horsepower has been augmented to 646 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, while the previous 376 lb/ft of torque is now up to 460 lb/ft of torque at 5,600 rpm. These modifications also led to a new top speed of 190mph.

The price tag for the new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is $32,000. You might think it is a bit expensive, but Novitec tuning program really makes the difference.
