Realistically, the only thing a higher strand count will get you is greater flexibility. That can be important when you want to fit a 1/0 guage power wire through a fire wall and under the interior carpet on the way back to your hatch. In terms of power and/or performance, strand count will make no discernible difference.

actually the reason for stranded wire is more for electrical conduction. The current distrubution on the cross section of a wire is concentrated around the outside. That means that if you have a solid wire you actually get less area for conduction then a stranded one.
