Maserati considering road-going model based on GranTurismo MC Corse Concept

Remember that Maserati GranTurismo MC Corse Concept that we saw in Paris?  The car was produced by Maserati Style Center as a racing version of the 440-hp GranTurismo S made for the track. The GranTurismo has been with Maserati for almost a year and half now with hotter ‘S’ version being the range-topper. Well, if the S isn’t hardcore enough for you, you’ll be happy to learn that Maserati is considering a road-going version of the MC Corse Concept.

The GranTurismo MC Corse Concept is powered by the same 4.7L V8 from the GranTurismo S but makes an additional 10 horses for a total of 450-hp and a peak torque of 376 lb-ft. It also gets upgraded brakes, improved aerodynamics, a lighter and more stiff chassis and an upgraded suspension. Maserati Style Center topped it off with 18-inch allow wheels and an FIA-approved roll cage.

According to EVO, if the sales of the GranTurismo and GranTurismo S stay strong Maserati will build a road-going “˜halo” model based on the GranTurismo MC Corse to compete with the likes of Porsche”s GT3 RS.

Of course, before that takes place, we’ll see a drop-top GranTurismo.
