MODENA, Italy — Maserati said its new GranTurismo MC Stradale, which will make its public debut at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, will be the "fastest, lightest and most powerful" car in the Maserati lineup when it goes on sale in early 2011.
The two-place GranTurismo MC Stradale is "inspired by" the Trofeo GranTurismo MC and the GT4 and is intended as a street-legal performance car that can also be driven on the track.
Maserati said the car delivers 450 horsepower, will "break the 300-km/h barrier" — roughly 186 miles per hour — and is more agile than the GranTurismo S without sacrificing ride quality.
