The MC Stradale was unveiled three years ago as part of the Maserati Gran Turismo lineup at the 2010 Paris Auto Show.
The 2014 Maserati Gran Turismo MC Stradale has evolved into a 4 seater with more speed to offer. The Italian automaker kept the major exterior design in place while building this vehicle at its historic facility in viale Ciro Menotti in Modena, Italy.

Engine & Performance
The 2011 edition was capable of 444 horsepower, 2014 MC Stradale comes equipped with a 4.7 liter V8 that now gives you 460 horspower.
It comes over with a top speed of 188 mph. The engine is paired with Maserati's super quick 6 speed "MC Race Shift" gearbox.
Maserati adopted a friction resistant coating on its cams previously used only in Formula 1 racing. This, along with a lighter weight and an improved aerodynamic design accounts for its powerful capabilities.
The new Maserati Gran Turismo MC Stradale boasts a sporty appearance, while offering an elegant and exotic exterior.
Maserati maintained the design link to the Trofeo lineup in this year's MC Stradale.
The previously mentioned decreased weight factor of this vehicle is, for the most part, due to the carbon fiber material it is constructed from.
Even the twin exhausts and central air intakes are made from the same substance.
The front faÃ§ade remains unchanged with the oval grille proudly displaying the Maserati emblem in its center. A centrally located hood scoop accentuates the top.
The profile view shows off its 20 inch alloy wheels with a set of Brembo premium brakes resting behind their surface.
The styling includes an integrated rear spoiler with "Maserati" written across its surface and the circular dual exhausts which cannot be missed.
The biggest change to the 2014 MC Stradale is inside. The 2011 edition was a 2 seater, now, it seats four.
The two front seats are made of (you guessed it) carbon fiber, wrapped in premium padding and displaying the esteemed Trident logo on the head rests and seat belts.
