Some publications presented their vision of what a new supercar from the Italian brand Maserati might look like. The serial version of the new items will be shown in September.

Maserati was supposed to introduce the spiritual successor to the MC12 supercar in May this year, but an outbreak of coronavirus infection forced the Italian manufacturer to postpone a big debut. According to the updated schedule of the company, the MC20 will be shown at the grand event MMXX: The Way Forward, which will be held in Modena (Italy) in September this year.

 The “official” photographs of the Maserati Italian novelty released earlier this year suggest that the mid-engined sports car might have a retro design with Porsche-style headlights, a low and wide front. Foreign designers decided to imagine how the long-awaited new product will look like.

 It is important to note that the pictures of the new supercar, published by the press service of the automaker, could well depict one of the early test prototypes of the MC20.

A car photographed next to Maserati’s headquarters in Modena seems to be wearing at least a few fake body panels in an attempt to hide the actual shape and size of the car. In addition, photographs were taken at night.

 Regardless of its direction of design, the new double Italian “rocket” can boast a fairly powerful technical stuffing. According to preliminary information, the new MC20 will be equipped with a Maserati turbocharged V6 engine, which boasts more than 600 horsepower. At the moment, nothing is confirmed, but according to the latest rumors, the six-cylinder power unit will be connected to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It is assumed that buyers will also be offered an electrified version of the new product, under the hood of which there will be a hybrid engine.
