Maserati shows tests of the new MC20 supercar

Despite the fact that the Italian brand has already unveiled a production version of its new MC20 supercar, it still keeps prototypes of this car under camouflage. The press service of the company has released photos that capture the new Maserati supercar, which is undergoing a series of tests on the race track.

In a post on its Facebook page, Maserati showcases its new MC20 supercar during testing at the Moderna Autodrome in Italy. Despite the fact that the car has already been presented, a camouflage film is still applied to the body of this instance.

The last time the Maserati MC20 was seen during testing, it drove the Ferrari Fiorano test track and was filmed.

However, the appearance of a camouflaged example of the MC20 supercar on the racetrack is not a surprise. The Italian supercar goes on sale later this year, so the automaker still has time to tweak some of the car’s electronics, as well as its suspension, before the supercar goes into production.

The MC20 will be powered by a new 3.0-liter Nettuno twin-turbo, twin-combustion engine that delivers a sizable 621 horsepower and 729 Nm of torque. The engine is said to have been designed from the ground up by the brand’s engineers, although there has already been controversy over this.

By transmitting power to the wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, the MC20 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. Thanks to the widespread use of carbon fiber to reduce the weight of the car to 1,500 kg, it can theoretically reach a top speed of 323 km / h.

When it goes on sale this year, the MC20 will be priced at $ 210,000
