That looks crazy and nice shots for sure. But I always thought the GT Stradale is trying too hard, like it's trying to be something it's not. I love the GranTurismo S and would most likely take that instead even if prices were equal for both.

Unfortunately, we can only get the tamed down version of the MC Stradale here in the States. The MC Sport Line:

I really don't like the way it looks (pretty overdone). This is from a person that likes the standard car a lot.

It's actually "GranTurismo MC" for the states. No bucket seats, no roll cage, 4 seater, and no carbon ceramic brakes compared to the "stradale" version that other countries have.

Sadly (on paperwork) it IS the "stradale" here.
I thought the same thing, but so far Maserati is not letting US customers order all the goodies. this one is a base model too.

Is the paperwork from Maserati NA itself? If you look around all the major car mags they call it GranTurismo MC... I think even the Maserati NA press release calls it the "GranTurismo MC". They aren't allowing customers to order the goodies cause it's not the real "stradale" that other countries have. It just has the appearance and power of one. It's still a very nice car nonetheless.

Go to the press release section. Here's the heading, "Maserati introduces a taste of the race-bred GranTurismo MC Stradale's magic to North America with the GranTurismo MC." Unless they changed it up now, although all the mags still call it the GranTurismo MC.

Yep, your right, the OP's pics are of the Maserati MC and not the Stradale. The ZF Auto is the clear telltale, err besides the non-competition seats and no scaffolding. At least the suspension and the Automatic's software is reworked, so it is not just an appearance package.

Yes. I just found out today and this car was ordered this way.
And someone else HAS just ordered a full Stradale interior, brakes, and CF.

As useless as this sounds I also found out you can order a F430 Scuderia with stock F430 seats, dash, brakes...

I can't find the thread but people where asking about this LP570 SL, saying it was not a real SL because "stock gallardo" interior, but it was how the owner ordered it.

I would be interested to see the full stradale model for the states. I just find it funny how Maserati's own press release would call it GT MC and not the MC stradale... Actually, looking at your pictures again right there the logo of the MC on the passenger side is clearly different from the real "MC stradale" logo.

I hope this clears it up for you:

Maserati got my attention back when Ferrari had stewardship over the brand. To bad, IMO, Fiat separated that relationship (~2005) and gave Maserati to Alfa Romeo.
