Maserati has the blue, not the blues
16 February 2006

Maserati has given itself a little present for winning the 2005 FIA GT championship – this limited edition of the GranSport, the MC Victory. Another Geneva debutante, only 180 will be made.

The MC (Manufacturers Cup) Victory will be on sale from May. Outside, the carbon fibre front and rear spoilers are new, and there is an Italian flag on each recessed into each front wing.

The carbon fibre extends inside, which also has a healthy dose of blue over its swathes of leather and Alcantara. The latter covers the steering wheel and centre sections of the – you guessed it – carbon fibre seats. There’s no information on price, and won’t be until after Geneva. A standard GranSport is £66,600.

Our Verdict

Seat Ibiza

The Seat Ibiza is good looking, well-priced and spacious supermini that doesn’t quite live up to Seat’s sporty image

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
