To mark its glorious first centenary, Maserati has produced a car like no other: a masterpiece whose every last detail expresses the legend that is the Marque of the Trident. The GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition is unrivalled in its power, performance and craftsmanship. This is Maserati passion and innovation at its best, sporting all the stunning lines that have made the brand an international design icon since it first sped onto the scene in 1914.
Despite its traditional GranTurismo silhouette, this centennial edition stands apart from its forbears. The new Rosso Magma color was designed to achieve the appearance of motion, even when the car is stationary. Applied in three coats, the shade varies subtly depending on the light to reveal deep undertones of purple and blue: perfection at 0km/h. The alternative launch shade, Blu Inchiostro, represents a stunning visual reference to both Maserati’s home city of Bologna and its iconic oval emblem. Five further paintwork colors are also available, ensuring a truly personalised experience for every driver.
The GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition is powered by the 454 HP, 4.7 litre V8 that first appeared in the GranTurismo Sport, combined with a robotised, 6-speed MC Race Shift gearbox that guarantees superb performance and a top speed of 185 mph. This highly innovative engine is designed to adapt to the driving environment, emitting a discreet purr in an urban setting and powerful roar on the open road.
Hydraulic transmission makes full use of the engine’s power: the auto-adaptive automatic gearbox delivers top performance at low and medium engine speeds without restricting power at high rpm. It also allows gear shifts to be postponed to up to 7.100 rpm, higher revs than almost any other automatic transmission in the world. The model offers three operating modes for responsive sports handling: Normal Automatic, Sport Manual and Race Manual.
The interior of the GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition rivals the exterior’s statement aesthetic. Visually striking accent panels on the headrests, armrests and steering wheel create a look that is as powerful as it is elegant. The sporty appearance of the interior is enhanced by carbon fiber inserts on the dashboard and seat surrounds, while the celebratory Maserati Centennial logo takes pride of place on the kick plate.
Black is the colour of choice inside the GranTurismo MC Centennial Edition, reflecting the classic design of the racing cars of yesteryear. The edition’s Italian Premium leather upholstery receives an extra touch of luxury from the unusual white double stitching that defines the profiles of the seats and the central tunnel panel. This Maserati design also captivates with its use of texture, pairing the finest leather with the same black carbon fibre that graces the exterior. Three exquisite alternative interiors are available, depending on the chosen paintwork shade.
