Maserati GranTurismo MC 2017 review
The revised Maserati GranTurismo MC
Maserati is aiming to extend the life of its ageing coupe with new tech, some design tweaks and a rationalised engine range
Maserati’s ageing coupé has been given a final facelift in an effort to keep it relevant until its long-awaited replacement finally arrives.In truth, it’s a range rationalisation as much as a refresh, with Maserati dropping both the entry-level 4.2-litre engine and the option of the single-clutch automated gearbox previously offered on the hardcore MC Stradale. All versions will now use the brawnier 454bhp 4.7-litre V8 and a six-speed ZF torque converter auto. Other changes include redesigned front and rear bumpers, improved equipment and the introduction of the Levante’s touchscreen infotainment system, replacing the previous stone-age sat-nav.Two versions will be available: the GranTurismo Sport, costing £93,145, and the more focused MC, which weighs in at a serious £108,780.
