The GranTurismo MC upgrades from last year's Stradale by replacing the the original Race Shift transmission with a full automatic gearbox, and adds a couple extra seats in the back instead of a roll cage.

Developed by the Maserati Corse division, the car is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 engine delivering 450 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque at 4,750 rpm (20 Nm of torque more than the GranTurismo S Automatic).

The MC was recently launched at Maserati's new showroom in the TriBeCa area of New York. Details on pricing and production numbers to be released at a later date.
