At the Web have published photos from the tests of the prototype of the new supercar Maserati MC20. The new 2021 model year will be presented in September as part of a special event.

It is already known that the official presentation of the new sports coupe Maserati MC20 will take place in the first half of September. In the meantime, the prototype of the supercar is again seen on the streets of the Italian city and yes, it now has a completely serial body and optics.

The mid-engined coupe is still hiding under heavy camouflage – engineers at Maserati even decided to disguise the rims. Despite the camouflage, it is easy to see the massive air intakes at the rear, necessary to cool the powerful engine.

We hope that these two exhaust pipes will be slightly larger in the final version of the supercar – as evidenced by the significantly larger cutouts in the rear bumper.

A closer look at the rear of the prototype reveals the aerodynamic element behind the engine cover, which appears to have received a rearview camera as well. Large air intakes at the top and bottom of the rear fenders in front of the rear wheels also indicate that there is an electric motor behind the seats.

Additional air vents have been implemented in the front fenders to cool the brakes, and it appears that the front rack is framed by air ducts to make the MC20 supercar as smooth as possible by reducing drag coefficient.

The Maserati MC20 will be powered by an engine called “Nettuno”. The Maserati engine has a 3.0-liter displacement and a V-layout with six cylinders. It also has a pair of turbochargers in its design. The total power will be 630 horsepower (730 Nm). If that wasn’t enough, Maserati has already announced plans to electrify the supercar over time.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Maserati is preparing to release two new models. Ahead of its debut, the Italian automaker has shared a fresh teaser. The exact date of the debut has also become known.
