GranTurismo MC Stradale (2011)

In September 2010, Maserati released that they will be officially showing a new version of the GranTurismo - the MC Stradale - at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The strictly two-seat MC Stradale is more powerful (450 PS/331 kW; 444 hp), lighter, and more aerodynamic than any previous GranTurismo model - all with the same fuel consumption as the regular GranTurismo. In addition to two slits in the bonnet, the MC Stradale also receives a new front splitter and rear air dam for better aerodynamics, downforce, and improved cooling of brakes and engine. The body modifications make the car 48 mm (2 in) longer.

The car usually operates in an "auto" mode, but the driver can switch this to "sport" or "racing", which affects gearbox operations, suspension, traction control, and even the sound of the engine. The MC Stradale is the first GranTurismo to break the 300 km/h barrier, with a claimed top speed of 301 km/h (187 mph).

GranTurismo Sport (2012)

Replacing the GranTurismo S, the Sport was unveiled in March 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show.Main changes include a revised 4.7L engine rated 460 PS (338 kW; 454 hp), a restyled front spoiler, new headlights and an interior trim with new steering wheel and seats. Two transmissions choices will be offered on the Sport; the standard gearbox is a six-speed automatic, while a six-speed sequential manual transaxle comes as an option. The latter has steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, a feature that’s optional with the automatic gearbox.
