Maserati is ushering in a new era for the Trident Brand with the Maserati MC20. This supercar is setting the tone as their first model celebrating an exciting era of returning to racing. As a successor to the MC12, the MC20 has big shoes to fill but its design, specs, and technology point to a perfect fit.
Powering the new MC20 supercar is Maserati’s Nettuno engine, a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine. This powerplant produces 630 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque. With a weight of 3,307 lbs, its power-to-weight ratio is best-in-class. Maserati notes that the MC20’s combination of a weight power will allow it to sprint from 0 to 60 in under 2.9 seconds. It will also have a top speed of over 201 mph.
For the MC20’s design, Maserati took inspiration from their history. In the front of the supercar, shadows of the MC12’s design are included in the grille and placement of the hood’s air vents. Unlike the MC12, however, the MC20 does feature butterfly doors that Maserati says provide function and ergonomics. As for the overall aerodynamics of the MC20, Maserati tuned it to perfection. To be more specific, they put it through over 2,000 hours in the Dallara Wind Tunnel. This allowed Maserati’s designers to create a sleek vehicle with a drag coefficient under 0.38. And if you’re looking for a rear spoiler, that’s a bit hidden as it’s an active and discreet rear wing.
Inside the Maserati MC20 is a driver-centric cabin. All necessary functions of the MC20 are within an arm or fingers reach which heightens the connection between the driver and the car. Highlights of the interior include the two 10-inch screens (one acting as the instrument screen and the other for multimedia), carbon fiber center console, wireless smartphone charger, and a convenient storage compartment underneath the armrest. Maserati says that the new MC20 will be connected at all times, allowing the driver to take advantage of connected navigation, Alexa, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The driver can control these connected features through the Maserati Connect app.
As part of the launch of the new Maserati MC20, the Italian automaker is also noting the six new colors that they have developed for the supercar. This includes Bianco Audace, Giallo Genio, Rosso Vincente, Blu Infinito, Nero Enigma, and Grigio Mistero.
One important point that Maserati has discussed while revealing the MC20 is that this is not the only variant that we will be seeing. The MC20’s design will not only be created as a coupe, but a convertible as well. And, yes, in the future we will more than likely be seeing a fully electric MC20 supercar.
Production of the new Maserati MC20 supercar will begin at the end of 2020 with pre-orders available right now.
