Maserati Granturismo MC is the official name for the USA market. It's never been called MC Stradale base on the official website and window sticker. It's without the F1 transmission compare to the other european market and it weighs 4,350 lb which is the same weight for the Granturismo Sport in US too. On the other side, MC stradale is less than 4,000 lb and almost 200 lb less than the Granturismo Sport with the same F1 transmission. So you can see the difference here. Oh, we cannot get the carbon ceramic brakes here too. I can understand the cars in USA tend to be weigh more because of the more restricted safety standard but judged by the same weight compare to the Sport trim here and no F1 transmission and carbon ceramic brakes I would say the MC here is more like a cosmetic upgrade than the performance upgrade. But I like the MC looking so much and I really don't care about the performance for this car other than the style.
