Up for sale is my 2009 Maserati GranTurismo S MC-Shift. One of only 300 MC-shift cars ever brought to North America. My final picture is documentation from Maserati on the rarity. The MC-shift transmission was brought to North America in the 2009 model year only. The history behind this is, importation was stopped because the car was deemed different enough from the standard GranTurismo that the government wanted Maserati to crash test it as a separate model. This was too expensive and Maserati stopped bringing the car to North America.
The MC-Shift F1 transmission is simply amazing to drive and is the same box shared with the Ferrari 599. This transmission is actually a transaxle and torque tube setup, being located in the back of the car, instead of being bolted directly behind the engine as in a standard GranTurismo, This gives the added advantage, besides lightning quick shifts, of giving the car a completely balanced 50/50 weight distribution.
It is also equipped with the fixed Trofeo suspension, no Skyhook. The fixed Trofeo suspension drastically improves handling over the standard Skyhook adjustable suspension, and is similar to the suspension Maserati uses on their Trofeo race cars.
Also being an S car it has the Ferrari built 4.7L engine sharing the same block as the Ferrari F430. So it is by far the most driver focused GranTurismo you can buy in the US.
The car is in fantastic condition with roughly 24k miles (Mileage my go up a bit as it is driven). It also has brand new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires with less than 500 miles on them (Picture included). The only drawback is it was originally sold in Toronto so the gauges are all metric, but the digital speedo is in mph. The only small flaw on the car is a small scuff on the bottom of the bumper, I have included a picture of this. The only aftermarket modifications are the addition of a Urutu X-pipe.
The car is fast beautiful and rare. Please let me know if you would like to come look at it. This car is also for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the listing early if sold.
(NOTE: The mileage in the data report is listed in kilometers while the mileage in the listing is in miles. This is the reason for any discrepancy. The car was originally delivered in Canada, thus the odometer shows kilometers and the data report shows kilometers. I converted to miles for the ad for better ease of understanding)
