The GranTurismo MC Stradale’s unique engine note is delivered by the latest version of its 4.7 litre V8. The unit develops 460bhp (338kW) at 7000 rpm. Torque peaks at 520 Nm at 4750 rpm to showcase pull and all-round performance of an engine whose roar is rendered even more captivating by the permanently open by-pass valves when the Race button is pushed.
Lots has been done to uprate the power levels and torque and to make gear shifts smoother. These changes have also had a positive influence on consumption and emissions while the Diamond Like Coating (DLC) on the camshaft tappets and lobes play a big role in reducing friction. Steel cylinder liners bring down the weight and size of components, especially lengthwise, improving the car’s dynamism.
