2013 Maserati GranTurismo MC Convertible - Car and Driver
Those are real seats back there, not a bench with dimples that masquerades as rear seating in some convertibles. Next year comes the SUV, with Maserati rumored to be dropping the Kubang name for Cinqueporte or Levante, two monikers the company has trademarked. We'd rush up to a tight uphill turn, tap the tall shift lever in the manual gate, and hear the Maserati V-8 blip a downshift. With the Maser in its Sport setting, the open exhaust note bounces off the trees, chasing behind you, all the better with the top down. The upholstery can be leather or suede, and Maserati would be more than happy to open its extensive personalization order book to let buyers tick off the expensive boxes. Maserati's 454-hp, 4. 7-liter Ferrari-built V-8 works in league with a six-speed automatic that's happy doing its own thing or prompted via shift paddles. What sets the MC convertible apart from many ragtops is that it's a reasonably generous four-place ride. And that epitomizes the MC convertible—happy to cruise or carve through a corner. The folding cloth top is a three-layer design with a steel-and-aluminum frame that rises or folds in 24 seconds at speeds below 20 mph and provides the interior with the top-up quietness that's expected in a luxury convertible these days. Aiming to put 50,000 automobiles on the road annually by 2015, Maserati has expanded to four models: the Quattroporte , the Ghibli , the GranTurismo , and the GranCabrio. MC could stand for Machismo Character instead of Maserati Corse. To avoid name confusion, Maserati doesn't use the GranCabrio label in the U. S. , preferring to call what we were testing the MC convertible. At 4200 pounds, the GranTurismo MC convertible is no lightweight, and agile isn't the word to describe how it carves through tight corners. Driving the new Maserati GranTurismo MC convertible in the hills north of Milan was like living in the Land of Hairpin Corners. Source: www.caranddriver.com
2012 Maserati GranTurismo MC - Car and Driver (blog)
Still, we’d like to hear even more. But there is one thing more, and to many, the most important quality: the uncanny sound. The fix is to open ’er up, at least for those buyers who want a little extra Italian wattage. The dead-sexy styling that seems only to bubble up from an Italian brain is one thing. What is it about an Italian machine that gets people to open their wallets wide for one. For Italian cars, we magazine writers have deployed all the acoustic metaphors, purple and otherwise, in our arsenal: wail, rip, shriek, snarl, buzz saw, warble, the “blood-chilling howl of a feral she-beast,” and so on. We’ve tried onomatopoeia:... On our drive, we found out that it does move the excitement needle for Maserati—a bit. Activate sport mode, and the exhaust bypasses lock open for even more auditory pleasure. Friction reduction accounts for the increase, says Maserati, thanks to the strategic use of “diamond-like coating,” an antifriction technology derived from Formula 1, on wear parts such as the cams and followers. However, generating “the Sound” is one place where Maserati has lately lagged its fellow Latin automakers. (The company is introducing the Sport version of the GranTurismo convertible at the same time. Unless you’re standing on it in sport mode, the GranTurismo speaks softly in a hissy and unconvincing dialect of the language of Lexus. It’s nowhere near as shriekalicious as a Ferrari 458, say, but luxury-oriented Maserati, with its smoother and more docile four-plane-crank, wet-sump version of the shared V-8, doesn’t care to be Ferrari. A new, higher-heart-rate model, the GranTurismo MC, starts at $143,850 and promises to crank up the aural vibrato as well as the throttle response and curve-eating ability of the big coupe. Included in the MC’s touchups is a sport exhaust system that, besides being 12 pounds lighter than the base tubing, transmits more of the 4. 7-liter V-8’s warbling, wailing, feral howl to the cabin. Customer studies from the early days of the current Maserati GranTurismo coupe bear out one of our persistent complaints with the car: It’s too quiet and a little too anodyne for a vehicle wearing the chrome trident. Opt for the MC, and you get 444 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque, 11 hp and 15 lb-ft more than the regular 4. 7 GranTurismo. Source: www.caranddriver.com
2015 Maserati GranTurismo MC Sport review | road test - Cars Guide
Peak power is 338kW at 7000rpm and 520Nm at 4750rpm. Those aside, it's a deeply pretty car, with lovely surfacing, the highlight being those beautiful rising guards that funnel your vision down the bonnet. The boot is fairly small but will fit more than, say, the similarly sized (but double the price) Ferrari FF. Safety. As has already been (indelicately) mentioned, this is a design that is not only ageing well, it still looks pretty fresh from most angles. When compared with the lightweight sportster from which the engine is lifted, you won't be moving quite as quickly, but the noise and the sharp-shifting transmission will keep you happy. The nose changes direction with a flick of the wrists and the moderately-firm Skyhook suspension does a good job of making the rest of the car follow without undue body roll. Tunnels are worth the price of entry as you crank the windows down and flip the paddles to find second or even first. Maserati's 4. 7L V8, inherited from the then-parent Ferrari, is a cracker. The 0-100km/h is dispatched in 4. 8 seconds and top speed is 298km/h. Inside is pretty cosy with a fat transmission tunnel that makes for a narrow footwell. There is no ANCAP safety rating for the GranTurismo. The transmission is a six-speed ZF automatic and fuel economy is a sobering 14. 3L/100km on the combined cycle. Having said that, the 11-speaker Bose stereo pumped out some pretty good sound and once the satnav's input method is deciphered, it worked surprisingly well given its fairly basic presentation on the seven-inch screen. Sadly, time has marched on from when the GranTurismo's entertainment system was first presented to the world. Despite rolling on 20-inch alloys shod with sticky 245s up front and 285 at the rear, cruising in the GT is surprisingly quiet and comfortable. The exhaust has the now-familiar valving that opens up when you switch it into Sport and if you don’t default to that when driving the GT, you're probably dead inside. With the Sport you get carbon-backed seats that are thinner in the backrest allowing for more room in the tight rear bucket. With Sport mode off, it's a very agreeable place to be. The seats are hugely comfortable, even in the rear, which seems impossible. And in this Sport Line guise, you get a bit of Stradale visual aggro without the chiro-inducing ride. The MC comes standard with six airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls, pre-tensioned and load-limited seatbelts front and rear. There are few more impressive sounds in the automotive world than a Maserati-tuned V8. Even on start-up, the smooth V8 gives you a little bellow to wake the neighbours and when in non-Sport mode it quickly settles into a quiet idle. Maserati's range continues to expand with the Ghibli finally coming on line but the real attention-grabber remains the GranTurismo. Both have six-speed gearboxes, but one has the rear-mounted robotised manual while our version was the six-speed ZF automatic, which is mated directly to the engine. The GranTurismo MC Sport comes in two versions. Both cars come standard with Poltrona Frau leather, carbon fibre trim inside and out, alloy pedals, bi-xenon headlights, foglights, parking sensors front and rear, 20-inch MSC alloys, keyless entry, electric seats, Alcantara headlining, cruise... Cars that have had this many birthdays don’t really deserve to look this good, but the GranTurismo's first impression is a good one – it's so pretty and that Birdcage-inspired nose, if anything, is getting better looking.

By the early 1960s, the Ford Motor Company, built to bring automobile transportation to the masses, was falling behind.

Baby boomers were taking to the road in droves, looking for speed not safety, style not comfort. Meanwhile, Enzo Ferrari, whose cars epitomized style, lorded it over the European racing scene. He crafted...
