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
Posted: 29 Mar 2011
Long? We're off to Barcelona - out of Italy, clear across France and over the Pyrenees into Spain. Fast? A £109,995 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale has a roaring 4.7 V8, and is 110kg lighter than the regular GranTurismo S. It corners and stops faster, thanks to stern chassis settings and carbon brakes and new aero not entirely unrelated to the GT4 racing car's. MC stands for Maserati Corse, the company's race division. This is essentially a delivery job to Barcelona. We must be cheaper than trucking it. But no one's told us what route to take. Wahey. Let's make it 1,000 miles, taking some of the very choicest roads we know - and discovering some even more choice ones that we didn't.
