GranTurismo MC Stradale MY13
A no-frills two-seater designed for the track that offers luxury and comfort
The MC Stradale is the only two-seater in the current Maserati range. The rear seats were eliminated to reduce its weight and to underline the concept that this is first and foremost a driver’s car. In the front, the new body-hugging seats provide the torso and legs with perfect support during high-speed cornering on the race track, as well as all the comfort needed for long road journeys.
The ultra-lightweight body-hugging seats are made from high-tech materials
As well as guaranteeing outstanding support in all driving conditions, the two seats fitted in the interior are ultra-lightweight thanks to a skilful combination of high-tech materials for the padding and upholstery, which is a mix of sports leather and Alcantara®. The rear shell frame is carbon fibre and the seats feature manual forward-backward and seatback angle adjustment.
Lighter-than-leather Alcantara dominates the interior
The design of the dashboard fits with the car’s sporty philosophy: the luxury chrome detailing of the GranTurismo has been replaced with a look dominated by the colour black to give the car the feel of a cockpit. Alcantara®, which is lighter than leather, is used for the central console, the armrest compartment cover, the door panel armrests, the handles and the instrument panel brow.
Thrills at your fingertips with the Sport and Race buttons on the console
The man-car interface is a major feature of the interior. Such a high performance car requires an immediate, intuitive interface: the central console now includes the Sport and Race buttons, allowing the car’s handling to be optimised for different conditions. The instrument panel display includes the “MC-R” reading, indicating that high-speed gear shifting has been enabled.
Notable instrument panel with black background behind new racy steering-wheel
The new three-spoke steering-wheel, upholstered in leather and Alcantara®, has been redesigned for improved control and a more ergonomic grip; the upper and lower sections have also been flattened for better clearance. The evolution of the interior has also transformed the instrument panel, where Maserati’s traditional blue background has been replaced by black, with completely new white graphics.
