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.

  • Supercar Blondie talked about putting an 'extreme' bodykit on this. She's been living in the middle east too long & lost any semblance of taste.

    This follows a similar clean lines approach as the GMA T50 and is all the better for it.

  • I sure am very happy with the revival of Maserati. The GTurismo, was dated, lacked features, was overpriced, and was stil considered Maseratis flagship. I think that Maserati is going on the right track to get back in shape. The Ghibli was terrible, the Quattroporte, don't talk about it. I think that if they execute the other cars they might release properly, they'll be back in shape.

    • Hope that many people share your thoughts, so that I can get another QP or a Ghibli super cheap.

  • It looks like a Rimac...but Rimacs look good so it's a plus I think... however it's not as great as I thought it would be.

  • Is still a mistery for me how a car in which carbon fiber and aluminium have been employed so heavily, with a V6 and with only 4/5 particulars made of steel is still so heavy, 1.500 kg. Mistery
