Here are a couple of details from the vehicle’s powertrain:

– 4.7 litre, 460 hp V8 engine (debuted in the Gran Turismo Sport)

– MC Race Shift 6-speed electro actuated gearbox

– Automatic, Sport and Race driving models available

The Italian automakers have introduced some new features in the GranTurismo MC Stradale. On the exterior, the carbon fibre bonnet creates high-speed downforce, improves cooling and allows it to be of the same dry weight as the discontinued two-seat version. The new 20 inches alloy rims also add boldness to the car’s exterior.

The GranTurismo MC Stradale can go all the way to 303 km/hr and will achieve the 100km/hr feat in 4.5 seconds. The Brembo carbon ceramic brake disks guarantee the vehicle’s safety. Driving in demanding situations is not a problem with gearshift paddles that are longer than in other versions of this model. Fuel consumption and emissions have also been kept low in the Granturismo MC Stradale.
