Maserati is these days in an expansion period. The arrival of Kubang Concept, its first SUV, was a sample of it and now awaiting the arrival of a motor sports center position could be called GranSport. This information was published by the British magazine Evo, which estimated that the launch of new sports would occur in 2015 and hit the market with a V8 engine that would allow stem face rivals like the Porsche 911 and Audi R8.
Evo could be made of this information through an interview with Harold Wester, number one company, who also promised to search the car, provides “l to purest possible expression of Maserati’s sportiness.” And the inspiration, either from a technical standpoint and marketing, is clear: “I imagine we’ll have something like the Alfa Romeo 4C but with the style of Maserati. Should have a carbon fiber monocoque and engine in central position, as Alfa 4C, to give designers more freedom to create something truly impressive.” Continue reading

It is, with 1,670 kilos, the sportiest version of the brand. In addition, the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is a beast of circuits. And also served in real life! It is certainly a sport with which to dream. The mode ‘Race’ of the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is difficult to explain with words, and I’ve tried many cars : the change manually operated carbon paddles, blows to the spine to move from one relationship to another ( shifts from one gear to another in 60 milliseconds) and the sound is about the world of racing.
For example, if you go to 2,000 revolutions per pedestrian city will not look no where it came from such a crash. But the good news does not appear when you accelerate. The best is when you lift off the throttle and sourced V8 Ferrari holds: hear a crackling so addictive that you will notice that you are pulling only to listen.
The new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale makes it easy if you want to go alone. The ‘Auto’ makes more comfortable insertions. The switching time is lengthened to 200 milliseconds, you move to a higher ratio between 2,500 and 3,000 rpm and 100 km/h and has got six. The feeling I have is that you go on a Citroen C4 Picasso with change ‘CMP’: between gears is a power vacuum that makes you go, shaking his head as if to say yes to everything. Continue reading
