Maserati has entered a new Era with the MC20. The new super sports car combines performance, sportiness and luxury in the unique Maserati style. MC20 was presented to the world in Modena on today during the “MMXX: Time to be audacious” event.

The new MC20 (MC for Maserati Corse and 20 for 2020) is the Maserati everyone was waiting for. It is a car with aerodynamic efficiency, which conceals a sporty soul, with the new Nettuno engine, a 630 horsepower V6 with torque of 730 Nm that delivers 0-100 km/h acceleration in under 2.9 seconds and a top speed over 325 km an hour. An engine that signals Maserati’s return to producing its own power units after a hiatus of more than 20 years.

The MC20 is a fairly lightweight car at under 1,500 kg, and thanks to its power output of 630 hp it comes out best in class in weight/power ratio, at just 2.33 kg/hp.

Maserati MC20 was designed in Modena and will be built at the Viale Ciro Menotti plant, where the Trident’s models have been built for more than 80 years. The new production line, created in the spaces where the GranTurismo and GranCabrio models were assembled until 2019, is now ready for action in the historic plant. The site also features a new paint shop incorporating innovative, environment-friendly technologies. Nettuno will also be built in Modena, at the newly established Maserati Engine Lab.

The MC20 is designed to enable coupé and convertible versions and for full electric power.

The new MC20 will be connected at all times with the Maserati Connect program. The full range of services includes connected navigation, Alexa and Wifi Hotspot and can also be managed through the Maserati Connect smartphone or smartwatch App.

Both visually and conceptually, there are strong references to the MC12, the car that marked Maserati’s racing comeback in 2004. In the same way as its predecessor, MC20, with its explicitly racing soul clear from its name alone, announces the intention to return to the world of racing. The production launch is scheduled for the end the current year with orders to be accepted from the 9th September after the world Première.
