Al Tayer Motors, one of the UAE’s premier automobile dealerships, will highlight the Maserati GranTurismo S MC Sport Line at the Dubai Motorshow. Alongside it on the stand will be the Maserati GranTurismo MC GT4, which makes its regional exhibition debut.
Maserati has recently launched the MC Sport Line options package in the UAE for automotive lovers who want enhanced sporty performance as well as luxury for their cars.
“The Maserati GranTurismo S MC Sport Line is one of the sportiest cars in the GranTurismo range while the GranTurismo MC GT4 is made for sheer enjoyment on the track. Motoring fans visiting the Dubai Motorshow will be pleased to see both these cars on our stand,” said Hossam Hosni, General Manager - Luxury Auto, Al Tayer Motors.
The MC Sport Line customization program
Maserati has developed a special series of new options named ‘MC Sport Line’, with new contents that add to Maserati’s already extensive range of personalized features on offer. The MC Sport Line is designed to enhance the sporty DNA of Maserati vehicles for those customers who like to display their passion for racing through a dynamic look and a choice of technical solutions that increase the driving fun without compromises.
The GranTurismo S, the ultimate expression of Maserati performance on roads, was the model chosen to present to the public the first proposals of the ‘MC Sport Line’ catalogue, which is now extended in the GranTurismo range and the entire Maserati line-up.
Maserati customers will not only be able to enhance the sporty look of their vehicle’s exterior and interior — but even choose mechanical solutions.
The name ‘MC Sport Line’ sums up the experience acquired on the track by the ‘Maserati Corse’ department, whose contribution to the design of the functional components has been invaluable. The world of motor racing also inspired Maserati’s designers when it came to styling, hence the extensive use of carbon fibre, very popular among racing enthusiasts thanks to its direct connection with racing competitions.
Aerodynamics can be modified thanks to the addition of front and rear carbon-fibre spoilers, which benefit from track tests conducted on the GranTurismo MC Concept. The new aerodynamics not only optimizes the vertical load, but gives the car a very distinctive appearance, as do the side skirts with central panel finished in matt black, adding a dynamic edge to the side view.
The sporty look of the exterior can be completed with the mirror housing and door handles, also made from carbon fibre. The same dark shade is reflected in the glossy black 20-inch wheel rims that match the dark line of the exterior perfectly.
The carbon fibre door sill bearing the words ‘MC Sport Line’ tells you that you are entering a different environment, in which carbon fibre characterizes the door panels, dashboard and central tunnel.
The steering wheel rim is also made from carbon fibre, as are the control stalks for the electro-actuated transmission and the body of the instrument panel, dashboard and door panels, featuring carbon moulding. Looking at the central tunnel, carbon fibre dominates the entire section, acting as a backdrop to enhance the brilliance of the chrome.
The ‘MC’ pedal block complete with kickplate to the left is machined from a solid aluminium piece.
Under the ‘skin’, the suspension has been stiffened thanks to new, stiffer springs, shock absorbers and anti-roll bars; the new suspension set-up is synchronized with a specific Maserati Stability Program software, allowing the driver more freedom. The car is now 10 mm lower than the GranTurismo S, resulting in a performance on the road of the GranTurismo S that is absolutely uncompromising in terms of handling and driving enjoyment.
All the features listed are available, either as part of the customization package, following the indications of Maserati designers, or individually, to cater for the personal tastes of each customer.
