MC. The letters are sacrosanct to fans of the Trident marque and its venerable racing prowess. They stand for Maserati Corse, and you may recognize them from the MC12, the Enzo-based homologation special that's still kickin' ass and taking names in the FIA GT1 series. More recently the Modenese automaker rolled out a racing version of its GranTurismo coupe bearing those same letters, which has since been followed by a roadgoing version of said racer called the MC Stradale. There've been MC Sport Line accessories for the GranTurismo S as well, but until now the Quattroporte has been left out of the fun. Kicking things off for its four-door model, Maserati has unveiled the Quattroporte MC Sport in Sydney at the Australian International Auto Show. So what are we looking at, a road-going version of the touring car currently being flogged around Italy's best circuits in the Superstars series? Unfortunately not. What you're looking at here is the existing Quattroporte Sport GT S -- already one heck of a car -- with some added trim: carbon fiber interior accents and aluminum pedals, and little else.
