It’s a common problem, you’ve spent £110,000 on a two seat Maserati MC Stradale, then the arrival of your unplanned progeny forces you to replace it (the Maserati) with something a little more practical.
Fear not, Maserati has a solution, in the form of the new four-seat MC Stradale. It makes its debut at next week’s Geneva Motor Show, offering the same stylish package, but with space for due bambini.
The new four seater is powered by a 463bhp 4.7-litre V8 engine (11bhp more than the two-seat MC Stradale) combined with an MC Race Shift 6-speed robotised manual gearbox.
Although the new Quattroporte will be built at the Giovanni Agnelli plant in Grugliasco, Turin, the GranTurismo MC Stradale will be built at the historic factory in viale Ciro Menotti in Modena.
As before the MC Stradale takes its inspiration from the Trofeo Championship racing car, and now features a carbon fibre bonnet which frames a central air intake, forged 20″ alloy wheels and a carbon fibre rear valence.
Brembo carbon ceramic brake discs are fitted as standard and it’s capable of reaching a top speed of 188 mph.
Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but you should expect a slight premium over the two-seater’s £109,995 price tag.
