If you have always felt the Maserati GranTurismo had too much luxury and not enough sport, feel free to thanks the folks in Modena because your prayers have just been answered.

If you've always felt the Maserati GranTurismo had too much luxury and not enough sport, feel free to thanks the folks in Modena because your prayers have just been answered.

The company has unveiled the 2011 MC Stradale which is described as the "fastest, lightest and most powerful car in the Maserati range." Drawing inspiration from the Trofeo GranTurismo MC, the Stradale features an aerodynamic body kit, high performance brakes, and a revised suspension for "razor-sharp handling."

Power is provided by a 4.7-liter V8 with 450 hp (336 kW / 457 PS). It enables the car to hit a top speed in excess of 300 km/h (186 mph).

More information will be released later this month, so stay tuned for continuing coverage.
