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 road loves this car, and it's completely mutual. The long, wide, flowing contours of the GranTurismo's bodyshell cast a big shadow, but the arched front wings give your vision a frame to aim through. The high-geared steering opens a window on flat, decisive cornering. It soon turns out that although this car comes with all the semi-track vernacular - aero, venting, carbon brakes, one-piece seats, cage and harnesses - it doesn't come with the jitteriness that's often the price. When the road goes damp, it still finds traction, and the cold tarmac doesn't seem to be causing the tyres to shirk either.
