Novitec, famous for tuning Italian gems from Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Ferrari, recently added a new offshoot called Novitec Tridente to expand its portfolio to include Maserati as well. After having worked on the Gran Turismo, Gran Cabrio, and Quattroporte, it’s now time for something more hardcore.

Enter Novitec Tridente’s latest project, the focused Maserati Gran Turismo MC Stradale. The MC Stradale gets a new KW sport suspension set, and large 22-inch alloy wheels rubber banded by a set of Pirelli P Zeros. For power, Novitec gave the MC Stradale a supercharger and installed a Novitec intercooler as well. Finally, combined with a remap of the ECU, the new Novitec MC Stradale gets a power bump from its stock 434-hp to a wild 646-hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration is a smoking 3.9 seconds to 60mph, reaching a top speed all the way to 190 mph.

If you’re one of the few privileged owners of the Maserati Gran Turismo MC Stradale and you could still use a little extra, this Novitec kit can be yours starting at $32,000. Visit Novitec Tridente for more details.
