The stunning 2014 Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale is destined to make its official entry to the world at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.
So, what can be expected this time around in terms of tweaks and refinements?
Put simply, the biggest change notable with the new Granturismo MC Stradale is a second row of seating. While the Granturismo range as a whole comes with seating for four as standard, the MC Stradale has been so far kept as a two-seater in order to reduce weight and boost performance.
As far as aesthetics go, Maserati have been anything but heavy-handed with the 2014 Granturismo MC Stradale, which by rights is a good thing. There’s a brand-new bonnet made from carbon fiber and sporting a redesigned air-intake, while custom 20-inch alloy wheels bring the package together in typical style. And beneath the surface, the cabin has been tweaked and upgraded with lavish new materials and general comfort aids.
Under the hood lies the same V8 4.7-liter engine as standard with the current Granturismo, which following a redesign in 2012 is good for an impressive 454 brake horsepower. What’s more, Maserati also claims the tweaked V8 is considerably more economical and fuel-frugal – exact figures for the 2014 Granturismo MC Stradale are of course pending.
The release date for the 2014 Granturismo MC Stradale has yet to be announced by Maserati, but we know it will be rolling out this summer and take the torch from the existing two-seater.
Prices for the 2014 model are also yet to be announced, though are expected to come in a mark or two higher than the current model’s near $170,000.
