The Italian premium brand has published all the information we are interested in about its new 630 horsepower Twin-Turbo V6 engine.

The leadership of the Italian brand decided to gradually reduce its dependence on Ferrari engines – a brand new power plant was developed a couple of minutes ago, developed entirely by Maserati. Named Nettuno, the engine takes the form of a twin-cylinder 3.0-liter V6 that weighs less than 220 kilograms. It uses a dry sump and a pre-combustion system, which is used in F1 engines, with two spark plugs.

The new engine can develop power of 630 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 730 Newton meters of torque in the range of 3,000 and 5,500 rpm.

The engine can spin up to 8000 rpm. It has a power density of 210 hp / liter and is the first completely new engine developed by Maserati over the past 20 years.

Naturally, the first model of the automaker, which will receive this power unit, will be the new supercar MC20, which will debut during the event “MMXX: time to be bold”, scheduled for September 9-10. Ultimately, it will be installed on other models of the updated Maserati lineup. According to a recent publication of the foreign publication Automotive News Europe, its power in sports models of the brand will be 542 hp, and in crossovers, it will produce 523 hp. Notice how we used the plural? This is because in 2021 a new SUV will join the existing Levante cross.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Maserati published a photo of its new MC20 supercar. The press service of the Italian brand published blurry photos of a completely new supercar Maserati – the model received the designation MC20. The car will be presented in September.
