This particular car was featured on S18 E5 of top gear, where it was driven by Jeremy Clarkson who praised it for its excellent handling, sound and stopping power.
Recently this car has received an overhaul to the Carbon brakes at a cost of over £5000 at an authorised Ferrari dealership as well as being fitted with a brand new Air condition pump at a cost of £3000.
The GranTurismo MC Stradale offers a thrilling experience, boasting fast reactions, plenty of grip and a fabulous V8 engine note in Race mode. But it’s not a hardcore track car. While it’s firmer than the GranTurismo S, it’s still civilised and more than capable of doing long distances – in true GT style.
Inspired by the GranTurismo MC Trofeo and GT4 racing cars, the MC Stradale boasts the same 443bhp 4.7-litre V8 engine as the GranTurismo S, but adds a whole host of upgrades to the aerodynamics, brakes and chassis. It’s a car with plenty of headline figures – not least the fact that it’s the first Maserati GT capable of breaking the 300km/h barrier. In fact, it’ll do 301km/h (187mph).
In addition to the 187mph top speed, the newcomer does 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds. The MC Race mode shifts really do feel right on the race track, bumping your head back into the racing seats on every upchange.
Coming into corners, braking power is stunning, thanks to standard carbon ceramic brake discs – a Maserati first – which bite hard and make good use of the sticky Pirelli Corsa tyres. These sit on 20-inch MC Design ultra-light wheels.
