The MC20 debuts Maserati’s new in-house-developed Nettuno engine: a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 motor that pushes out a meaty 630PS of power and 730Nm of torque. Paired with an 8-speed DCT gearbox, the sportscar is quick off the line, with a 0-100kmph sprint time of less than 2.9 seconds. It’s also pretty potent in a straight line with a top speed of over 325kmph.
Its exteriors will sport the signature Maserati radiator grille, large air intakes and sharp LED headlamps. Carbon fiber is seen across front splitters, roof and side sills while at the rear distinctive rear bumpers, horizontal LED tail lamps, dual exhausts and a large carbon fiber diffuser is seen. The new Maserati MC20 is presented in six colour options of Bianco Audace, Giallo Genio, Rosso Vincente, Blu Infinito, Nero Enigma, and Grigio Mistero. The interiors get a 10.3 inch touchscreen with Maserati Connect Program, integrated vehicle control system offering enhanced driving dynamics and updated technology. It is also seen with a 10.3 inch digital instrument cluster and Maserati Connect updates the owner on service schedules and other security features via a smartphone. Seating, dashboard and door panels are in Alcantara with blue stitching accents.
Expecting to hit market sometime in early 2021, the Maserati MC20 could start off at $200,000 in the US. As per details revealed by the automaker, MC20, short for ‘Maserati Corse 2020’ is an evolution of the MC12 that saw the return of Maserati to racing in 2004.
