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

But here's the banana skin that it slips on. The GranTurismo is a big car, pretty well a full four-seater. The Stradale obstinately declares its quasi-track mission by doing without a rear seat. The test car even has an optional roll cage and unfeasibly inconvenient four-point harnesses. But the Stradale starts from the wrong place. True, it feels lighter than its 1,700kg kerbweight, but to make a lightweight sports car you wouldn't honestly begin with something this big.
