What Precisely Is On The Hood Of This Maserati?

by Gunnar Heinrich ::: img Maserati ::: Maserati GranTurismo MC

MASERATI recently announced pricing details for the company’s righteous GranTurismo MC and GranTurismo Convertible Sport ($147,500 and $149,800, respectively). Maserati also released some tantalizing shots of the new tridents, however, this one in particular perked my interest for another reason.

What exactly is on the hood of the above GT MC? The driver seems to be well aware of it. Is it some kind of sensor – for speed? Airflow? Or something else. Does anyone know the actual name of the instrument in question? Brownie points for anyone who can come up with the answer.

*Update * A commentator suggests – with probable accuracy – that the alien object is a GoPro Camera

  3. It’s a GoPro camera.

  4. By George, I think you’re right. Much more industrial looking than a simple Flip!
