GranTurismo MC Stradale MY13
Architecture and technology borrowed from the world of racing
Although conceived as a road car, the GranTurismo MC Stradale is as exciting and powerful as a racing car. This is due to its engine, more powerful than ever, its significantly reduced overall weight, its innovative carbon ceramic brake system and its improved suspension. The tyres also come from the world of racing to offer optimum performance, even on the circuit.
The V8 engine generates 460 HP, responsive to every touch on the accelerator
The GranTurismo MC Stradale's latest incarnation of the 4.7L V8 features new mapping and new reinforced pistons, improvements which yield increased power (460 HP at 7,000 rpm), while torque delivery is now a breathtaking 520 Nm at 4,750 rpm, reflecting all the agility and power of a unique engine that can propel the car past the 300 km/h barrier with ease.
The new MC Race mode makes the car even more aggressive and responsive
While the GranTurismo offers five electronic handling modes, the MC Stradale has three: Auto, Sport and the exclusive “MC Race”. This setup is unique to this model, and is activated by pressing the “Race” button on the dashboard. This is all it takes to make the car even more aggressive and sporty, and the six-speed gearbox allows lightning-fast gear shifts in just 60 milliseconds.
The suspension setting is lower, with stiffer springs
The setting of the MC Stradale’s suspension is 10 mm lower and has been completely redesigned with the aid of racetrack technology. The springs have been made 8% stiffer at both front and rear and the stabiliser bar diameter has been increased from 24 to 25 mm at the front and from 21 to 23 mm at the rear to reduce the roll angle and optimise handling.
Lighter and peerless braking distances thanks to Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes
Subjected to the most severe testing on the most famous circuits, the Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes weigh around 60% less than conventional discs of the same size. The front is equipped with 380 x 34 mm ventilated discs, operated by a powerful six-piston caliper. The rear disks measure 360 x 32 mm, with a four-piston caliper. The stopping distance is just 33 metres at 100 km/h, with an average deceleration of 1.2 g.
