Take a listen to the Maserati MC20's engine

Claimed sportiness

5w ago


The new Maserati MC20, with its unique small supercar design, is a real eye-catcher. And even though we can clearly see the filiation with the Alfa Romeo 4C, the trident manages to adopt its own typical Maserati style. Details such as the front grille, for example, are a nod to earlier models of the brand.

The other invisible characteristic that is typical of all Maseratis is, of course, the sound of the engine, which must be exceptional. Presented on September 10th in the streets of Modena in Italy, the beauty has therefore given the tone. We're not disappointed at all because the 3.0-litre V6 has a sound that makes it instantly recognizable.

While the engine is not lacking in character, it is still a little behind in comparison to previous Maserati productions. Indeed, the sound is muffled more, probably to comply with anti-pollution standards. Fortunately, the brand did not use a soft rev limiter like some German sports cars.

As a reminder, the 3.0-litre V6 developing 630 PS and 730 Nm of torque will be joined next year by a fully electric motor that is naturally much more timid in terms of sound. Maserati is planning to add an artificial noise, again characteristic of the brand, to try to overcome the problem.

  • It’s too quiet.

    • I imagine it would be louder if he had some room to really romp on the throttle. I'd love to hear it on a track.

  • That thing with a full titanium cat back exhaust, headers and downpipes will sound amazing.
