The fastest production car ever unleashed on the U.S. market by the Italian company, 2012 Maserati GranTurismo MC, is now ready for sale.
The brand announced that this car will list at $143,400 (this price includes $1,800 in shipping charges and a $1,700 gas guzzler tax).
Fitted with more luxurious appointments, the 2012 Maserati GranTurismo MC is based on the slightly more extreme GranTurismo MC Stradale sold in Europe, the biggest different being its transmission selection.
While the GranTurismo MC Stradale features an automated manual gearbox, the GranTurismo MC for US comes with a conventional automatic, ZF six-speed.
These two cars are powered by the same engine, a 444 HP and 376 pound-feet of torque Ferrari-derived 4.7-liter V-8 though the GranTurismo MC Stradale will sprint to 60 mph from rest 0.3 seconds faster than the GranTurismo MC, doing it in just 4.6 seconds. It will also reach a top speed of 186 mph, 1 mph better than the GranTurismo MC’s 185 mph.
Beside all these performances, this engine also features lower friction internals and a lighter exhaust system to help improve fuel economy, though final EPA numbers are yet to be released.
In addition, the GranTurismo MC also comes fitted with a special aerodynamics package that helps increase downforce on the car at high speeds without any detriment to drag.
