2016 MASERATI GRAN TURISMO MC STRADALE
An Australian delivery in Bianco Eldorado and with Rosso Corallo leather trim.
In September, 2010, Maserati released that they will be officially showing a new version of the GranTurismo - the MC Stradale - at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The strictly two-seat MC Stradale is more powerful at 450 PS (331 kW; 444 hp), friction reduction accounts for the increase, says Maserati, thanks to the strategic use of “diamond-like coating", an antifriction technology derived from Formula 1, on wear parts such as the cams and followers. It is also 110 kg lighter (1,670 kg dry weight) from the GranTurismo, and more aerodynamic than any previous GranTurismo model - all with the same fuel consumption as the regular GranTurismo. In addition to two slits in the bonnet, the MC Stradale also receives a new front splitter and rear air dam for better aerodynamics, downforce, and improved cooling of carbon ceramic brakes and engine. The body modifications make the car 48 mm (2 in) longer.
The MC Race Shift 6-speed robotised manual gearbox (which shares its electronics and some of its hardware from the Ferrari 599 GTO) usually operates in an "auto" mode, but the driver can switch this to 'sport' or 'race' (shifts in 60 milliseconds in 'race' mode), which affects gearbox operations, suspension, traction control, and even the sound of the engine. The MC Stradale is the first GranTurismo to break the 300 km/h (186 mph) barrier, with a claimed top speed of 303 km/h (188 mph).
The F136, commonly known as Ferrari-Maserati engine, is a family of 90° V8 petrol engines jointly developed by Ferrari and Maserati and produced by Ferrari; these engines displace between 4.2 L and 4.7 L, and produce between 390 PS (287 kW; 385 hp) and 605 PS (445 kW; 597 hp). All engines are naturally aspirated, incorporate dual overhead camshafts, variable valve timing, and four valves per cylinder.
The architecture was produced in various configurations for Ferrari and Maserati automobiles, and the Alfa Romeo 8C. Production started in 2001 when Ferrari owned Maserati, Ferrari itself owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, formerly Fiat S.p.A. under whom the engine sharing program was organized. Ferrari was spun-off in January 2016 and has stated they will not renew the contract to supply engines to Maserati by 2022.
History tells us of Maserati's idea of "GranTurismo" started in 1947 with the principal being a luxurious handcrafted vehicle with a race car engine. So it started with the 1947 A6 1500 GT, followed by the glamorous 1957 3500 GT Vignale, the Ghibli and now their latest edition in this heritage line, the GT MC Stradale.
