Italian supercar Maserati MC20 appeared on the official teaserSeptember 7, 2020
The press service of the Italian brand has published a teaser for the all-new Maserati MC20 supercar. The supercar will debut in a few days.
The Italian supercar Maserati MC20 will debut on September 9, but in the meantime, the automaker continues to release teasers dedicated to its absolute novelty. This time we are given a look at a short video showing parts of the car.
Even though the MC20 hasn’t debuted yet, we know that it is powered by Maserati’s new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which the company calls Nettuno. The power plant installed in the middle produces 630 horsepower and 730 Nm of torque. The engine can “spin” up to 8,000 rpm and uses double spark plugs for each cylinder. The powerplant also supports electrification – an all-electric MC20 will appear over time.
Recent spy shots of the new car give a much better idea of what to expect from the new Italian supercar.
The low-slung body shape vaguely resembles the Alfa Romeo 4C, but is still more aggressive. There are large air intakes at the front and vents in the bonnet. The other side has a shorter shape compared to the smooth “nose”. The exhaust pipes protrude from the holes in the rear bumper.
Maserati positions the MC20 as a spiritual successor to the MC12 supercar, which in turn was based on the Ferrari Enzo.
After the debut of the standard MC20, a convertible version of the model will be presented – the debut of such a performance of the car should appear in about a year.
Maserati originally intended to introduce the MC20 in May. Unfortunately, the outbreak of COVID-19 has forced the company to postpone its debut until September.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the high-performance Maserati Ghibli Trofeo and Quattroporte Trofeo received new engines. The Italian brand has unveiled its Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans in the powerful Trofeo version. New items, which are equipped with V-shaped “eights” produced by Ferrari, can now accelerate to 326.6 km / h.
