The Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale is one delicious sports car. Sure, it doesn’t carry the same esteem as its Ferrari sister, but it’s still a meaty and juicy sports coupe that just jumps out of the pack. And with Maseratis like this, you can always count on one tuning company to be front and center when it comes to producing some sickening performance modifications.

So hello there, Novitec. We see that you wasted little time in tweaking the sportiest Maserati model in the family.

Before we get to the new tweaks Novitec did under the GranTurismo MC Stradale’s hood, it’s worth noting that the Italian tuning company also worked on some aerodynamic details of the sports car, particularly a central air scoop on the hood that’s flanked by large air vents. There’s also a black-finish boot lid spoiler, two 105mm black-coated or polished tailpipes, lowered suspension springs, and a new set of 21" and 22" double-spoke design alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires.

As for the performance mods, Novitec added a new SUPERSPORT turbocharger to the sports car, as well as a new water-to-air intercooler, a larger manifold, bigger injectors, and a remapped ECU. With these modifications, Novitec was able to take the GranTurismo MC Stradale’s 4.2 liter V8 engine and improve its output from the standard 450 horsepower and 376 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 646 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 460 lb/ft of torque at 5,600 rpm. The staggering increase in output also meant an improvement in performance numbers to the tune of a 0-62 mph time of 3.9 seconds a new top speed of 190 mph.

The only drawback to the program is that it costs €23,900 ($32,000). But hey, if you have the money to buy the car, then you can probably afford Novitec’s impressive tuning program.

I’m so fascinated with the exterior design of this GranTurismo! I love the angst of it, especially on its front design. It looks like an angry dog on that. smiley Moreover, it’s a good thing that it also has an impressive engine.

I don’t think that it is only a simple and ordinary sports car on its detailing instead I really see this one as the most attractive vehicle of Maserati and its aggressive front is absolutely awesome with this.

I love the exterior detailing of this vehicle! I also noticed that it looks more so aggressive that caused by its car lines. Anyway, I’m already quite satisfied with its engine output.

I hope that they also include some pictures of its interior. Anyway, I would have to agree that it is absolutely very attractive in its aesthetic design, I just only hope that the engine of this one is quite good enough for it.

I hope that they also include some interior pictures of this one. Anyway, I have to agree that it is really so striking on its aesthetic design but why is it, they still didn’t announce about the production of it?

I can say that it is already looking great and stunning on its body paint, but I’m quite wondering about what will be the interior of this one will look like and even on its other specifications.

This coupe is really looks so cute on its platform and to its other detailing. I have to admit that what the article said about it is true, that this one is one of the most delicious sports cars nowadays.

The front design of this GranTurismo looks like a wild or a mad dog smiley ahahaha and it looks so cute on that! Anyway, I love the body paint that they used on it. I barely see cars having that color.

Wow! So cute but oozing with angst and aggressiveness! smiley I must say that it is already looking great and fabulous on its body paint, and the engine of it was quite impressive but not fitted for a sports car.

Simple style but the design is noe simple. Yellow and Black color is good combintaion of color of the car. The car is very attractive because of the color. And I think the performance of this car is great.

I don’t know why it was describe like a tasty or food. The only and possible reason is that it is a complete package car and overall well performance. Same as like fruits or what you could have the benefits from it.

By looking only on its side, it looks like just an ordinary car.. But when you take a look on its front and back portion, it looks like a sports car.. It’s color yellow makes it cool and fresh.. A good combination of luxury and sports car for me specially the white one..
