The Maserati GranSport MC Victory
To mark its 2005 FIA GT Manufacturers’ Cup victory, Maserati will launch a limited edition version of the acclaimed GranSport GT car at Geneva. The car will be available to order from May.
As well as boasting more optional equipment as standard than the Maserati GranSport from which it derives, the new Maserati GranSport MC Victory offers a variety of new features that link it to the Maserati MC12.
Externally, the Maserati GranSport MC Victory is immediately recognizable for its aerodynamic, blue carbon front and rear spoilers and for the Italian flag embedded in the side panels, another feature taken from the MC12.
The front splitter of the Maserati GranSport MC Victory was redesigned to guarantee more air load at high speeds with the addition of the two lateral aerodynamic profiles and larger size. The Maserati GranSport MC Victory also benefits from more direct and precise steering and improved stability at high speeds, the same characteristics as the Maserati MC12.
Inside, the carbon elements mimic the exterior by being made from blue carbon. This is coupled with a selection of leathers and Alcantara trim, used on the upper dashboard, the door panels, in the central part of the racing carbon seats to emphasize the sporty look and on the steering wheel for grip.
The company is sure that from inside the cockpit "each and every driver will be able to experience the same exhilaration as the racing drivers of the Maserati MC12".
