About a year ago, Maserati unveiled its new MC Sport Line at the 2008 Bologna Motor Show. The extensive list of accessories allow owners to customize the look and presence of their Maserati GranTurismo or GranTurismo S.
Hoping to please some of its customers in Abu Dhabi, Maserati showed off a GranTurismo S MC Sport Line with Matt White “ice” finishing. The MC Sport Line package adds a front and rear carbon fiber spoiler from the GranTurismo MC Corse Concept, new side skirts finished in matte-black, carbon fiber mirror housing and door handles and glossy black 20-inch wheels.
Maserati wil only produce 12 version of the special limited-edition GranTurismo S MC Sport Line for all regions in the Middle East.

Maserati GranTurismo S MC Sport Line Package:
Limited-edition GranTurismo S MC Sport Line
The limited-edition Maserati GranTurismo S MC Sport Line with Matt White “ice” finishing is here portrayed in front of the futuristic structure of the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, where it was unveiled in a dedicated event for a selected number of Maserati customers of the Middle East.
Designed to enhance the sporty DNA of the Trident, the “MC Sport Line” sums up the experience acquired on the track by the Maserati Corse racing department, whose contribution to the design of the functional components has been invaluable. The world of motor racing also inspired Maserati’s designers when it came to styling, hence the extensive use of carbon fiber.
Only twelve GranTurismos in this configuration will be produced in Modena, all for the Middle East markets. Twelve is also the number of world titles which make up the prestigious palmares of the MC12 in the FIA GT International Championship since 2005: 2 Constructors’ Cups (2005 and 2007), 4 Drivers’ Titles 4 (Bartels-Bertolini in 2006, Thomas Biagi in 2007, Bartels-Bertolini in 2008 and 2009); 5 Teams’ Titles (from 2005 onwards uninterruptedly with the Vitaphone Racing Team); 1 Citation Cup in 2007 with the gentleman driver Ben Aucott.
Furthermore, twelve are the Middle East cities where Maserati is present with a dedicated showroom: each car will feature an internal plaque with the name of the city to which it is committed.
A limited and numbered edition of the GranTurismo S MC Sport Line, finished in a Matt Bianco Fuji with eye-catching pearlescent nuances, will be dedicated to the Italian market. Only eleven customers in Italy will be able to sit behind the wheel of this exclusive car.
