Maserati MC Stradale hits the Pyrenees
The GranTurismo MC Stradale is the ultimate road/race Maserati. Time to find the ultimate road to race it on

The engine is hooked to a pretty canny 'box too. It's rear-mounted for better weight distribution, but it always was. What's new is that where Maserati's early flappy-paddle manifestations were hesitant and hare-brained, this development can send each shift through in just two-thirds of one-tenth of a second. Bang. That's at full throttle in Race mode. But actually on a light throttle, it still goes smoothly. Race mode also opens up the ESP to more slip, but over the course of the trip it proved itself subtle-acting and trustworthy. So by the end, Race became default.
