Maserati GranTurismo MC Makes Debut - But No U.S. Plans Set Yet

LE CASTELLET, France The Maserati GranTurismo MC made its official debut on Monday, with word from Maserati that the $180,900 vehicle will not be rolled out in the U.S.

"There are no set plans for the U.S. at this moment, but that doesn't mean there won't be," said Jeffrey Ehoodin, Maserati's U.S. spokesman. He added that the GranTurismo MC is "not street legal, but I hope there may be one in the future."

The GranTurismo MC will go on sale in Europe in October directly through Maserati Corse. The Italian marque noted that "the new model is an offshoot of the Maserati GranTurismo MC concept introduced last September in Monza and based on the Maserati GranTurismo S road version."

The automaker said in a statement that the Maserati GranTurismo MC is "produced for gentleman drivers who wish to race in the 2010 GT4 European Cup and the national series." When Inside Line asked Ehoodin if this was meant to discourage women from buying the car, he replied: "Women can be gentleman drivers, too. We have contessas and all that. We are Italian. That's just how we talk."

Details on the GranTurismo MC include a 4.7-liter V8 linked to a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Maserati did not disclose horsepower and torque numbers. The car features carbon fiber bodywork and a racing-type exhaust system with removable catalyzers.

Inside Line says: This one is solely for our European brethren (so to speak) at this point. Anita Lienert, Correspondent
