The 621hp Maserati MC20 is here
Finally, a new Maserati supercar is here!
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, time to grab the popcorn as a new supercar has entered the town. Why should we be excited about 'this' particular supercar? Because this comes from Maserati. Yes, after loads of teasers the Maserati MC20 is finally here.
Let's run down the numbers. The MC20 can do 60mph in under 2.9 seconds and can reach 193 mph flat out. It also has the power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kilograms per horsepower.
The new twin-turbocharged, twin-combustion 3.0-liter V6 under the hood is made completely by Maserati and produces 621 horsepower and 729 newton-meters of torque. All the power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
There are four driving modes on offer - Wet, GT, Sport, and Corsa. There is also a fifth driver mode on offer named "ESC". Basically it allows you to go mad and drift the car until the tyres last.
The Italian carmaker has spent more than 2,000 hours sculpting the car in it's wind tunnel with the help of more than a thousand CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations. Maserati claim this has "enabled the creation of a genuine work of art." A genuine work of art it is, as the design of the car can take the shape of an electric, coupé and convertible supercar.
Inside, you will find a lot of carbon fibre on the steering wheel, centre console and the paddle shifters. On the seats, the dash, and door panels you will find a a mix of Alcantara and stitched leather with blue accents.
As far as touchscreens are considered, the MC20 has a 10.3-inch touchscreen display featuring Maserati Intelligent Assistant (MIA).
As you might have noticed by now, the MC20 has lovely butterfly doors. You can have the car in six colors: Bianco Audace, Giallo Genio, Rosso Vincente, Blu Infinito, Nero Enigma, and Grigio Mistero.
With this car, Maserati is back with a bang. The Italian carmaker has shown that it can mix with the big boys.
