OFFICIALLY REVEALED: MASERATI MC20
Maserati is back in the game with their new blood MC20.
Maserati finally revealed their newest supercar after a long break of 15 years. The MC20 is here and is already stealing hearts all over the world. Since the retirement of the legendary MC12, fans have been waiting for the next MC car. Needless to say, MC12 doesn't look disappointing at all as it's rear looks very aggressive with its diffuser which is bound to be a head-turner while it's front reflects a bit of MC12! Sadly the sweet V12 from the MC12 will be missed dearly. The MC20 is also the first Maserati car to feature butterfly doors. With the introduction of the MC20, Maserati is not only introducing a supercar but also paving a path for the future of Maserati. Did I mention Maserati is back into racing!
The MC20 comes in six different color options-
Blu Infinito(Definitely my favorite spec with carbon fiber roof!).
The MC20 comes with 20-inch rims in front and back with the front tires having the dimensions of 245/35 and 305/30 for the rear tires. MC20 also comes with 4 rims options to choose from, with each rim style forming a shape of a trident. The wheel also comes with carbon-ceramic brakes with the option of having the brake calipers in the exterior color. The MC20's braking distance is capable of doing 100-0 km/h under 108 ft.
The MC20 is definitely on the aggressively sporty side when it comes to the interior. MC20's interior features two instrument clusters, one on the driver dashboard which informs various info such as temperatures, tire temperatures, drivetrain related info,brakes temperature, etc, and one in the center of the interior which controls the car's infotainment system. The interior also features a center transmission tunnel which commands various functions such as the reverse button, automatic/manual switch button, an independent damper, and a drivetrain button where the driver can toggle between the four bespoke driving modes-
GT driving mode is the default driving mode for the MC20 which offers a mixed blend of performance and comfort. The suspension is on the softer side in the GT mode.
This mode is basically for every car enthusiast out there who wants to truly experience the MC20 capabilities. The sport mode offers a stiffer suspension setting while also offering fast and direct gear shifting.
This mode is only for the people who want to unleash their inner Stig. The MC20 unleashes everything it has to offer in the Corsa setting with the gear shifting being blisteringly fast, the exhaust valve being constantly opened with the traction also reduced. The driver can also activate the launch control in this mode.
Specially built for James May.
The heart of the car is a three-liter turbocharged V6 engine producing max power of 621 HP and peak torque of 730 NM. The MC20 is mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive fitted with a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission(see Lamborghini, it's not that hard!). The MC20 is capable of reaching 0-100 km/h in under 2.9 secs and has a top speed above 325 km/h.
There is also a Maserati car customizer available to customize the MC20 in your own way, so go nuts with it!
