Maserati has just launched the new MC20, its first supercar in 15 years, in a fantastic online live launch.
This pivotal model signals a fresh beginning for the brand, bringing a new design ethos to the fore.
Maserati has named the engine Nettuno, which is an Italian word meaning Neptune. The MC20’s twin-turbo V6 is a technologic gem that already holds an international patent. Nettuno puts the MTC (Maserati Twin Combustion) technology, the ground-breaking combustion system developed in-house, onto the world’s roads.
This new car’s engine delivers 631bhp of power at 7300rpm and torque of 730-newton meters at 3000rpm.
The MC20 Maserati has a new and sportier design.
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 the conception of a car with a distinct personality, with unmistakable forms that render it unique.
The butterfly doors are not only stunningly beautiful but also functional. They improve the car’s ergonomics and enable optimal access to and from the cabin.
It took over two thousand man-hours in the Dallara Wind Tunnel and more than a thousand CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations to design the aerodynamics, which enabled the creation of a genuine work of art. The resulting 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.
The MC20 is available in both coupé as well as convertible versions and for full-electric power.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the debut was delayed from April to 9th September 2020.
