Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale - Click above for high-res image gallery

Maserati can produce some gorgeous automobiles. The Maserati GranTurismo is no exception, in fact we'd place it in the give-up-your-first-born-to-own-one category of beautiful. In addition to its looks, the GranTurismo is a powerful and luxurious grand touring machine that causes both eyes and ears to strain for more as it goes by. The 430-horsepower GranTurismo S was the king of the trident-wearing coupes, until today. Taking the stage at the 2010 Paris Motor Show is the all-new Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale.

The GranTurismo MC Stradale ratchets up the excitement by pushing power output to 450 horsepower. The chassis has been tweaked and the body slightly updated for increased aerodynamics. The MC Stradale manages to increase the levels of downforce without causing a noticeable increase in drag. The result is an elegant two-door that's begging for track time. Have a look at our high-res gallery of the drool-worthy Maserati, below.

      I would really love a manual gearbox. I would love to pick one up (the base, if it came in a manual) in 5-6 years.

      FINALLY a down to business Maserati! I do love the Gran Turismo as is, but this car has the styling edge (and extra performance) that I've been waiting to see from Maserati. What a beauty!

      Maserati just cannot do a proper back end! If you saw ONLY the rear shot of this car, you'd think it was on a Mercury or a Buick or some other ordinary car. Or, at least I would.

      I do hope there is a Chrysler application, long rumored, for this coupe. It would be an excellent platform to help raise Chrysler into a true luxury brand as anticipated.
      Obviously the high end Fiat brands have natural derivative potential which should and I believe will be utilized as Chryslers. As a Crossfire owner I'm looking for a new halo performance coupe from Chrysler to join the Crossfire in my garage. This may be it, with distinctive American Chrysler styling and maybe even a Hemi , of course.

      Maserati makes the best looking coupe and sedan in the world, hands down, no contest.

      Really don't like what they did to the front end. Regular model is much nicer looking. I'd get a Rapide if I had the $$$
