Maserati GranTurismo MC news - GranTreat - 2009
It kept us hanging for a whole six months, teasing
us with little snippets of information and a quick glimpse of rubber, but
Maserati is finally ready to unleash the production version of its GranTurismo
And, judging by the picture above, it was well
worth the wait.
The limited edition, track-spec GranTurismo is apparently
aimed at ‘gentleman racers’ and designed to compete in the 2010 GT4 European
Cup class. It features a full FIA-approved roll cage, carbon fibre body panels,
plexiglass windows, upgraded brakes and suspension, along with racing slicks to
keep you glued to the track on quick bends.
Power figures are yet to be released, but expect
the 4.7-litre V8 to put around 450bhp when the MC takes to the track next year.
The car will go on sale as of October - available
direct from Maserati Corse only - and is expected to cost 135,000 euro excluding
VAT. We’d call that reasonable.
If that’s put you
