More details out on the Maserati MC20 ahead of its debut
You will need to be a keen-eyed observer to figure out exactly what to expect.
Is it the fastest Maserati? We don't know. Is it the brand's new flagship? Umm.. I cannot express. Will the new MC20 sport similar design cues to its other cars? Let's wait and watch. To clear some of these questions that we all have been waiting to get answered, Maserati has released yet another video on its Facebook page which provides a faint glimpse into what is supposedly to be the interior of the car.
Whenever something comes from Italy, we are excited, we are bound to be in frisson for a good reason because we know something 'wowsome' is getting ready for us which will also be fast and have styling attributes that nobody else dares to match. Such is the fervour behind Maserati's next big thing, the MC20. Ahead of its debut on September 9, in the video shared we can see round AC vents reminiscing with the 4C, which had such bits not only in the interior, but also on the exterior. We can also see MC20 lettering in bold fonts on the dash. However, it seems the company wants the frenzy to increase as much as possible as they have remained stealthy in sharing more details.
The video also gave a hazy glance into the exterior silhouette of the car featuring muscular haunches and an impending low-slung profile. The hood also gets indentations for air intake to cool the engine. The hood disseminates trapezoidal-shaped headlights that I suspect would go well with the overall design. The rear is expected to get a wing to counter the various physical forces. But the details are sparse for now so I will leave it to you to figure out how it could look like. At the rear, the taillights remind me of the Porsche Carrera GT from yesteryear, at least the angle that hasn't been covered. You can also expect humongous 3-spoke diamond-cut alloy wheels. What will not go overlooked however, are the round bottom spitting dual exhausts that look flashy.
The car will come powered by a 3.0-litre V6 engine which gets its independent name, Nettuno and will be producing 630 hp and 538 lb-ft (730 Nm) of torque. Want to make your arrival noticed well before you are actually there? The car also revs to 8,000 rpm! It's surprising that the MC20 isn't hybrid powered but run on gasoline. However, according to the brand, an electric version is in the pipeline.
Albeit the MC20 is the perfect successor to the MC12, the idea behind this car is to not make it a limited-run sports car and hence, as rare but allow more customers to immerse in the car and the brand. We can also expect more variants building up on the coupe in the future like a convertible body style and of course the electrified powertrain option that I mentioned before.
Take a look at the video below and let me know what you think are the design elements that it could possibly flank.
