The notion of gentleman race clubs has become more and more popular over the past few years. The idea is simple. Bring lots of money and a race prepared car to that series’ specification, turn up to each event, attempt to gain glory against fellow wealthy individuals. Maserati are in their third year of running a global event staring some rather angry GranTurismo. For 2012 these machines are faster than ever.
Claiming to be a half second faster than the 2012 cars, these new Maserati GranTurismo racers consist of a revised aerodynamic package and the loss of a bit more weight. The overall package is a much sharper racing tool that is ready to compete in the Trofeo World Series. The cost of running in this 2012 season is set at just under £100,000.
