Remember yesterday we were telling you that Maserati is going to surprise us at the Paris Auto Show? Here’s the surprise: the new GranTurismo MC Corse Concept that will compete starting 2009 in the FIA championships.
The concept is based on the newly launched GranTurismo S . But compared to its engine, the engien for the concept was upgraded with a new intake system, competition-spec catalytic converters and a center-exit exhaust and now develops a maximum power of 450 hp.
The concept comes with a new front splitter, a larger rear spoiler, and more aerodynamically efficient side skirts, while the suspension has been upgraded to meet the track surface with 18x12-inch front and 18x13-inch rear wheels fitted with racing slicks.
