New Maserati GranTurismo MC Corse Concept Car - (Global)

September 25th, 2008

Maserati recently made the announcement on their website, “We are going to surprise you,” well, they seem to have done it with the new GranTurismo MC Corse Concept.

The new hardcore GranTurismo variant is based off the current 4.7 liter V8 GranTurismo S with 430hp. The MC Corse is breed for the track, dominating corners with authority. With the help of engine upgrades, a new air intake system and a race ready extraction system, the power output gets a boost to 450 hp. An additional aerodynamically perfected front splitter, side skirts and spoiler combination ensure optimal downforce levels. Handling levels have also been improved with the help of a stiffer suspension setup and race rubber (18x12-inch front and 18x13-inch rear). Braking distance is reduced with the use of larger brake rotors and monobloc racing callipers.

One thing definitely needs a mention, and that’s the FIA approved rollcage… like we said, this is built to dominate the track.

With all this said, we don’t see this to be the only surprise that Maserati will deliver.

Stay tuned as we keep you updated.
