Nue Vue Photography has released a wonderful photo shoot of the very first Maserati GranTurismo MC sold in the US. The major difference between the MC Stradale and the GranTurismo MC is in the transmission. Where the MC Stradale has a normal gearshift, the GranTurismo MC has a full automatic transmission in production.
The GranTurismo MC is the fastest production car Maserati has ever sold in the US market. With a top speed of 298km/h and a 0-100km/h time of just 4.9 seconds, the GranTurismo MC is only 3km/h slower than the ultra-aggressive MC Stradale, even though it is aimed at a slightly more luxurious market.
