The highly anticipated Maserati MC20 Supercar is finally here. The MC represents Maserati Corse, and number 20 symbolizes 2020, the year of its world premiere, which also marks the beginning of a new era for Maserati.
The Maserati MC20 is a car with incredible aerodynamic efficiency, which conceals a sporty soul. It features the new Nettuno engine, a 621 horsepower V6 with a 730 Nm torque that delivers acceleration of 0-60 mph in under 2.9 seconds and a top speed over 202 miles per hour.
The MC20 is an extremely lightweight car under 3306 pounds, thanks to its power output of 621 hp. It comes out best in class in weight/power ratio, at just 5.3 pounds/hp. This record is achieved through choice quality materials, exploiting all carbon fiber potentials without sacrificing comfort.
Nettuno is the first engine in this new chapter of the trident brand’s history. The MC20’s twin-turbo V6, a technological gem already awarded an international patent, which puts the MTC (Maserati Twin Combustion) technology, the ground-breaking combustion system developed in-house, onto the world’s roads.
Overall, this revolutionary project has resulted in a car that epitomizes Italian excellence. The MC20 was designed in Modena and produced at the Viale Ciro Menotti plant, where the Trident’s models have been built for more than 80 years.
The guiding theme of the MC20’S design was the Brand’s historic identity, with all the elegance, performance, and comfort integral to its genetic make-up. The focus on performance led to a car’s conception with a distinct personality, with unmistakable forms that render it unique.
The butterfly doors are not only stunningly beautiful but also functional, as they improve the car’s ergonomics and enable optimal access to and from the cabin.
The car has a sleek line, with no mobile appendages but just a discreet rear spoiler that improves downforce without detracting from the MC20’s beauty. Once inside the cabin, the driver is always central, and nothing must distract them from the sporting driving experience.
Every component inside the MC20 has a purpose and is entirely driver-oriented. Simple forms, very few sharp edges, and minimal distractions prevail. There are two 10 inch screens: one for the cockpit and the other for the Maserati Multimedia System (MIA).
For the launch, Maserati has also developed six new colors to characterize its $210,000 MC20: Bianco Audace, Giallo Genio, Rosso Vincente, Blu Infinito, Nero Enigma, and Grigio Mistero. Each of them has been conceived, designed, and developed exclusively for this car. They all convey important themes: a strong reference to Made in Italy and to the Maserati tradition.
