Italian manufacturer shows new personalisation kit at Bologna
4 December 2008

Maserati has developed a series of new options called MC Sport Line for the GranTurismo.

Shown for the first time at the Bologna motor show, and available initially only on the GranTurismo range, the new customisation package features a generous selection of carbonfibre bits to enhance the ‘sporty DNA’ of the car.

Maserati’s move follows in the footsteps of sister company Ferrari, which offers a similar package called 2+2. The range of exterior options, shown here on the GranTurismo S, includes carbonfibre front and rear spoiler, side skirts, mirror housings and door handles, and black 20-inch alloys.

There’s more carbonfibre inside, with the doors sills, paddle shifters and steering wheel all getting the treatment.

MC Sport Line also brings minor mechanical changes to the standard car. The suspension, shock absorbers and anti-roll bars have all been stiffened and, as a result, the ride height is 10mm lower than on the regular GranTurismo S.

Customers can opt for the full list of modifications, or can order parts individually to ‘cater for personal tastes’, as Maserati puts it.

The MC Sport Line kit will be available from the end of January 2009 on the GranTurismo. The Quattroporte saloon is expected to get the package in the summer.

Just like a Ferrari California. Just less gay

  • Citroën C3 Aircross

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    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

    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
