Do not let the extra two seats in the 2014 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale fool you—it was built for performance and luxury. The GranTurismo MC Stradale coupe can appeal to the track types while comfortably seating up to four, providing optimum versatility.
Typically when an exotic sports car claims to have four seats the rear seats are barely large enough to store a bag of golf clubs or a small child. The Maserati GranTurismo Stradale’s rear seating is just as luxurious as the front options–coated in leather and Alcantara and finished with beautiful hand stitching. Two adults can ride with ample leg and headspace, making this a rarity indeed.
The 2014 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale at a glance:
- The rear of the cabin also boasts a center armrest, reading lights and cup holders. While Rolls Royce is not likely alarmed, it is a step-up from cramped predecessors.
- Under the hood is a Maserati 4.7-liter V8 engine.
- A carbon fiber bonnet helps to reduce the added weight of the additional seating.
- The four-seater version hits the 0-60 mile per hour mark in 4.5 seconds, which is the same as the two-seater.
- Shockingly, the four-seater Stradale is actually two miles per hour faster at top speed.
- It features dedicated Race mode, Automatic and Sport mode.
- Brembo carbon ceramic brakes provide a fast and smooth stop.
Just 20 units of the 2014 Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale will be available for New Zealand and Australia. The price is about average for its class at $345,000 plus delivery and dealer fees. It will be interesting to see if other leading luxury auto brands will create a comparable ride with the looks of a performance car and the space of a sedan.
