Maserati GranTurismo MC by Ultimate Auto

I’ve recently bought a metallic blue toy Maserati GranTurismo and my God I love it! As for the real car, the MC version, it has been recently gifted with a special tuning package from Florida-based aftermarket brand Ultimate Auto.

This stunning Italian grand tourer is now the proud owner of a custom enclosure within its suede trunk, in the shape of a JL Audio 10W3 subwoofer alongside lighted custom carbon fiber trim which matches the additional trim parts found inside the car’s cabin. In addition, and a premiere for Luxatic, this Maserati has been equipped with an Escort 9500ci radar detector system which aids you in reducing the speed of the car in case police is on the watch, together with a laser diffuser system. To go with the overall theme, Ultimate Auto have also installed a set of Forgiato wheels measuring 20 inches in diameter.

To be honest, this vehicle needs the radar system, as it’s Maserati’s fastest production car of today to be sold on the American market. It is able to sprint from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.9 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 298 km/h. In fact, the MC Stradale is just 3 km/h faster in terms of top speed than the MC. These figures are entirely possible thanks to the 4.7-liter V8 engine beast hiding under its bonnet, entirely crafted from alloy metals. The engine is able to deliver 444 HP (331 kW) at 7,000 RPM and 510 Nm of torque at 4,750 RPM.
