Inspired by the Trofeo GranTurismo MC and the race-winning GT4 motorsport models, the new two-seater Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale that will debut at the Paris Auto Show 2010.

The MC Stradale will feature sharper handling than the four-seater Gran Turismo and will top 186 mph. The new car, the fastest, lightest and most powerful in the Maserati range, will go on sale during the first quarter of 2011.

The GranTurismo MC Stradale produces more aerodynamic down force without producing more aerodynamic drag, it produces more power – deploying the same 442 bhp 4.7-litre engine as used within the rest of the Maserati range.

We’ve got a handful of images of the new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale, but we’ll be first to show you a video of the car in just over a week’s time.
