Maserati will use the new V6 engine as a replacement for the obsolete Ferrari V8 engine, which will appear in the upcoming MC20 supercar.

The new Maserati V-twin with twin turbo system and 3.0-liter displacement is expected to produce 542 horsepower. According to the foreign publication Automotive News Europe, in addition to the new mid-engined sports car from Maserati, which will receive the designation MC20, the new power plant will also be under the hood of at least three more brand models. This motor will replace the old Ferrari V8.

In addition to the new MC20 supercar, the V6 engine will be available in future successors of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio models.

It will also be under the hood of the brand’s future crossover, which will be smaller than the current Levante. The engine version for sports cars is expected to produce 542 hp, and the crossover will have 523 hp.

It is reported that even the standard version of the engine will have some level of electrification. Twin-Turbo V6 will allegedly use a technology called “turbulent jet ignition.” The system uses the spark plug space to create an ultra-lean combustion chamber. This technology improves overall fuel efficiency and reduces emissions.

An updated Ghibli with a hybrid powerplant will be unveiled on July 15, and updated versions of the Levante and Quattroporte with an electric motor will appear later. Supercar MC20 will debut in September. The company’s still nameless crossover will be unveiled in 2021.
