Maserati marque has come up with a winner this time and the engineers are ready to roll out their latest model GranTurismo MC Corse Concept.
The MC Corse Concept uses the same engine found on the GranTurismo S but due to a new fresh injection method and a new exhaust system located centrally instead of sides to further enhance the power it'scapable now to develop 450 hp.
Catalytic converters make the car meet up the emission norms. The enlarged track and a front splitter make it a more aerodynamically efficient car while the rear spoiler, apart from making it aerodynamic, gives it a sporty and hard look.
To lower the effect of friction, side skirts have been modified and the suspension system has been largely improved to make it a more track friendly car by means of 18x12 inches front wheel and 18x13 inches rear wheels.
Also, large brake discs help keeping the car in control while speeding. It seems, that after the very popular and successful MC12 Corse of 2004 GT, Maseratis's GranTurismo MC Corse Concept is a beast which is roaring to go on the tarmac. According to the manufacturer, the new concept will be officially unveiled in October, at the Paris Motor Show!
The Maserati GranTurismo MC Concept was derived from the Maserati GranTurismo S that made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6, 2008. Engineers at the Maserati Racing Department took efforts to further improve the performance of the Maserati GranTurismo MC Concept while making it much lighter.
To achieve that, engineers revised the mapping of the engine of the Maserati GranTurismo MC Concept to squeeze out up to 330.9 kW (450 hp) of output and 510 Nm torque at 4,750 rpm, thereby increasing its performance without sacrificing reliability.
Maserati engineers also revised the concept’s intake and exhaust systems by installing a high-performance conical air filter and an exhaust system equipped with racing-type catalytic converters and silencers.
Further improving the performance of the Maserati GranTurismo MC Concept is its new suspension setting combined with enhanced weight distribution and new single-string racing dumpers. The Maserati GranTurismo MC Concept rides on new 12-inch x 18-inch front and 13-inch x 18-inch rear wheels wrapped in slick tires.
Moreover, Maserati upgraded the concept’s brake system to allow it to endure the stress typical of use on a track by using larger discs and monobloc racing calipers. Furthermore, Maserati lightened and stiffened the concept’s chassis by employing an integral welded roll cage, as required by the FIA regulations.
