The Next Level Featuring Maserati [Molto Bello Slideshow]By Staff


Last week, we gave you the old school car. We can’t always live in the old school styles. This week, I decided to kick it up a notch and present you guys with the 2009 Maserati GranTurismo S MC Sport Line. Just one word: Bello-Beautiful.

The Beautiful Italian cars. You can’t really get enough of them. Someone had asked me what kind of order I use in deciding the cars I present you guys. The answer is none! I just love different cars and their body designs. I love model cars and therefore, I love seeing the different designs. In the future, if you guys are lucky, I will show you guys a glimpse of a car design I have been producing since my teenage years!

Back to the car. The 440 horse power at 7700 RPM beast with a 4.7 liter V8 engine finished with a slick carbon fiber parts is just amazing! I did not know where the MC part came from and doing some research, I got this:

The name “MC Sport Line” sums up the experience acquired on the track by the Maserati Corse department, whose contribution to the design of the functional components has been invaluable. The world of motor racing also inspired Maserati’s designers when it came to styling, hence the extensive use of carbon fiber, very popular among racing enthusiasts thanks to its direct connection with racing competitions.

The GranTurismo S, the ultimate expression of Maserati performance on roads, was the model chosen to present to the public the first proposals of the “MC Sport Line” catalogue, which will be extended in the GranTurismo range and then cover the entire Maserati line-up during the course of 2009.

Aerodynamics can be modified thanks to the addition of front and rear carbon-fiber spoilers, which benefit from track tests conducted on the GranTurismo MC Concept; the new aerodynamics not only optimizes the vertical load but gives the car a very distinctive appearance, as do the side skirts with central panel finished in matt black, adding a dynamic edge to the side view.

The sporty look of the exterior can be completed with the mirror housing and door handles, also made from carbon fiber. The same dark shade is reflected in the glossy black 20″ wheel rims that match the dark line of the exterior perfectly.

This car is just phenomenal and I can’t wait until I get to see something like this in the streets! Or maybe I should take a trip to Italy one of these days! Enjoy the slide show:
