Maserati MC20, the beginning of a new era for the Modena Trident.

The Maserati MC20 is finally here. The new Trident sports car that marks the beginning of a new Era for the Brand, an era that looks at the glorious past of the company but which focuses its eyes, especially, on the new technologies of the future, including the electrification.

Looking back, the MC20 name of the new sports car, perfectly embodies the essence of the brand, echoing that of the latest legendary supercar of the Brand, the MC12. If in fact the name MC12 meant Maserati Corse 12 Cilindri, sanctioning the return to racing for the Trident after 37 years at that time, today the name MC20 stands for Maserati Corse 2020 and celebrates, once again, the return of the Brand to competitions.

The heart of the sports car is the Nettuno engine, the new and innovative V6 Biturbo with 630 HP and 730 Nm of torque with MTC (Maserati Twin Combustion) technology, proposed for the moment only in the variant without electrification and combined with an 8-speed double clutch gearbox. Maserati claims a top speed of 325 km/h and an incredible best-in-class weight/power ratio of 2.33 kg/hp. The refined aerodynamics have been studied in collaboration with Dallara, in the wind tunnel of Varano de' Melegari.

The new sports car of the Trident, however, also introduces many technological innovations, including an innovative Infotainment system with central screen and 10.25-inch on-board computer screen, internet connection for the management of Maserati Connect services, integration with Amazon Alexa or Google Assist and music streaming with Tidal service. There is also a high quality 12 speakers audio system developed by Sonus Faber in Italy.
