In response, Maserati has premiered its new GranTurismo MC Sport Line at the Bologna Motor Show, delivering the intimidating presence which the GranTurismo S deserves.
The MC Sports Line futures front and rear carbon-fibre spoilers, which boast real-world performance ability through tests conducted on the GranTurismo MC Corse Concept.
Carbon fibre accents extend to the door handles and side mirrors, offset by glossy black seven-spoke 20-inch wheels.
Inside, the door sills greet passengers with the words "MC Sport Line”, with the carbon fibre highlights extending to the door panels, dashboard, central tunnel, steering wheel and shift paddles.
The whole car sits 10mm closer to the road as the suspension has been stiffened with new springs, shock absorbers and anti-roll bars, synchronised with specific Maserati Stability Programme software.
All features presented on the MC Sport Line are available as part of the Maserati customisation package, following the indications of Maserati designers; or individually, to cater for the personal tastes of each customer.
