GranTurismo MC

Leaner, racier version of Maserati’s suave grand tourer

The 2018 model year sees some careful upgrades to the sensuous GranTurismo, with a new, deep-cut octagonal front grille carrying the famous Trident at its centre, and a new rear end treatment.

Like its stablemate the GranTurismo Sport, the even more performance-focused MC is powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.7-litre V8 that develops 460hp; the chief difference between the two models is expressed by the more aggressive styling, additional options and reduced weight of the MC.

Overview

Maserati GranTurismo MC

The GranTurismo MC is offered with an optional carbon-fibre bonnet; it’s modelled on the MC Trofeo racer and features an aggressive central air intake with twin side vents. In our opinion, if you’re going for the MC you’d be crazy not to tick that option.  Yes, it saves weight but more importantly it looks sensational. Two further exterior features of the MC are the carbon-fibre front splitter and headlamp trims. 

The front spoiler, side skirts and slots in the re-profiled front bumper are claimed to maximise downforce at high speed and cool the brakes. The side skirts also integrate with the vents to channel airflow under the car’s body, aiding high-speed stability. The MC rolls on striking 20" Trofeo alloy wheels and is offered in three striking finishes; Blue Assoluto, Blue Inchiostro, Rosso Italiano and Rosso Magma.

Inside, the MC continues with the race-inspired theme with the option of upholstery in a combination of Poltrona Frau leather and Alcantara™ as well as the standard Poltrona Frau. The sports seats have the option of carbon-fibre backs, and there’s a choice of three steering wheel designs; in leather, leather and Alcantara™ or leather and carbon fibre.

Technology

Maserati GranTurismo MC

The GranTurismo Sport and MC are both powered by the same potent naturally-aspirated 4.7-litre V8, developing 460hp at 7,000rpm and 520Nm of peak torque at 4,750rpm. Transmission is a six-speed ZF automatic. However, the lighter weight and slipperier aerodynamics of the GranTurismo MC give it the edge in both acceleration and top speed; it blasts from 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds, a tenth of a second faster than the Sport, and reaches 187mph compared with the Sport’s 185mph. But it’s not what you do in the MC, it’s the way that you do it; both the MC and the Sport would be perfect for a fast drive down from Calais to the Côte d’Azur, but at the wheel of the MC, you’d probably want to drop past Paul Ricard for a few fast laps, too.
