GranTurismo MC Stradale.

Something beautiful and brutal will take pride of place on the Maserati stand at the Geneva motor show next week.

The new four-seat GranTurismo MC Stradale makes its world debut at the show and like the previous two-seat version, it takes inspiration from the Trofeo Championship race car.

Beneath the new carbon fibre bonnet, you'll find the same 343kW 4.7-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine that made its debut in the GranTurismo Sport.

The power plant shoves its goodness through the rear wheels via a six-speed MC Race Shift robotised manual gearbox. Given a clear run, it'll reach a top speed of 302km/h.

You can tell the MC Stradale apart by its carbon fibre bonnet that frames a central air intake and two rear extractors and by the new forged 20-inch alloy wheels.
