GranTurismo MC - Technology

share the thrill

Architecture and technology borrowed from the world of racing

Although conceived as a road car, the Maserati GranTurismo MC is the most exciting, high-performance model in the GranTurismo range, thanks to a powerful engine and aerodynamic styling.

 


Thrilling power underfoot

The unmistakable roar from the exhaust comes from the famed 4.7-liter Maserati V8 engine, delivering a maximum power of 454 HP at 7,000 rpm. The torque, increased to 384 lb-ft at 4,750 rpm, makes this engine’s thrust and elasticity felt at once, while its throaty baritone is underlined by the opening of the bypass valves in Sport mode.


A really “hands-on” gearbox

The six-speed automatic gearbox of the Maserati GranTurismo MC features auto-adaptive software that automatically responds to driving style and road conditions, adapting the gearshifting mode accordingly. It uses MC Auto Shift technology, which operates in a variety of ways depending on performance parameters.

Lower sport setup

The suspension settings of the GranTurismo MC are 10 mm lower and they have been conceived and developed with the aid of racetrack technology. The springs and dampers have been stiffened to restrict lateral load transfers, while the stabilizer bar diameter has been increased from 24 to 25 mm at the front and from 21 to 23 mm at the rear to reduce the roll angle and gradient and to optimize handling.

Light, high-performance brakes

The braking system of the Maserati GranTurismo MC makes the most of Brembo dual-cast technology with discs crafted from cast iron and aluminium. This brings the weight down by 15% to 20%, while offering enhanced performance and less overall wear. The system comprises six-piston monobloc calipers up front and four-piston calipers in the rear, paired with drilled, slotted discs. This design provides more predictable braking performance and reduces braking distance, especially on wet surfaces.
