GranTurismo MC Stradale - Interiors
Four front-row seats for a thrilling motoring experience
While retaining all the characteristics of a fast, powerful, lightweight “street legal” racing car in its genes, the new GranTurismo MC Stradale delivers the same levels of comfort and spaciousness as the other models in the GranTurismo range: for the first time, a restyled four-seater interior is combined with the racing-derived exquisite aerodynamic lines and high-tech solutions.
More space than ever before
The interior offers unprecedented comfort for a car so close to the race-track world, where space is so often sacrificed to performance. The special rear shell of the front seats, upholstered in black leather and available on request in the same colour as the seats or in carbon fibre, affords additional leg room to those sitting in the rear seats, which are also redesigned in the same style as the front seats.
Ergonomic racing-type seats
The new racing-style seats with integral headrest are designed to offer the best driving position and a high level of lateral restraint, together with unbeatable comfort. Soft Poltrona Frau leather is combined with a central section with a special Alcantara® finish, designed to set the pulses racing. Fine stitching around the edges of the backrest highlights the exquisite craftsmanship of the seats.
Lighter-than-leather Alcantara dominates the interior
To convey the unmistakable “feel” of a racing-car interior, lavish use of Alcantara® is extended to a wide variety of zones, from the central console to the doors and the instrument panel brow, all with exquisite ornamental stitching. The racing connotations are also emphasised by the Nero Soft finish used on the trims, including the special bezel underneath the front seat headrests.
New, simpler interface
Such a high performance car requires an immediate, intuitive interface: the Sport and Race buttons on the central console allow the car’s handling to be quickly optimised for different conditions. The new, longer Trofeo Design gear-shift paddles afford maximum control of gear changes on any terrain, while the perforated aluminium pedals give a better driving “feel” and optimum control of the accelerator and brake.
Notable instrument panel with black background behind racy steering wheel
The three-spoke steering wheel, upholstered in leather and Alcantara®, has been designed for improved control and a more ergonomic grip; the upper and lower sections have also been flattened for better clearance. The evolution of the interior has also transformed the instrument panel, where Maserati’s traditional blue background has been replaced by black, with completely new white graphics.
