Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale by Novitec with 475kW

The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is one of the finest Italian coupes on the market right now, and to give the elegant supercar even more stick, renowned Italian car tuner Novitec has come up with a supercharger kit for the MC Stradale which takes power levels up to 475kW (646hp metric).

In standard form the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale features a naturally aspirated 4.7-litre V8 developing 331kW (444hp) of power and 510Nm of torque. With the Novitec kit, consisting of a cog-belt driven supercharger and intercooler system (running 6.2psi), a larger intake manifold, bigger injectors, as well as a retuned ECU, power is pumped up to 475kW and 624Nm.

Novitec says the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale supercharged powerup pack is capable of smashing 0-100km/h in just 3.9 seconds, while offering a top speed of just over 300km/h (190mph). Quite a significant improvement over the standard MC Stradale’s 0-100km/h time of 4.5 seconds.

Like most Italian cars, there’s always going to be a certain amount of flamboyance and flare blended into the styling. And with the Novitec Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale, that theme is no different. Novitec fits a set of charcoal black 21-inch front and 22-inch rear alloy wheels, suspended via new, lower, sports springs to give the MC a menacing hunkered down appearance.

Other features include an optional lightweight carbon fibre bonnet with a bespoke centre air scoop with twin heat-extracting vents, a butterfly-operated 105mm exhaust system with black tips, as well as an optional tailor-made interior to suit the owner’s desire.

The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale tuning kit is now available through Novitec Tridente, with prices starting at around US$32,000 (approximately AU$32,540).
