Maserati is ready to restart. Your next MC20 will be the flagship for this restart. We can’t wait to see the car, and if a recent rumor about the car and driver is true, it could have over 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) of its new V6 engine.
There is no context from which this rumor originated. We know that Maserati builds its own V6 engine for this car instead of buying a Ferrari mill, and the word from the car and driver is that it’s a double-turbo monster attached to an eight-speed dual clutch transmission connected. The rumor also suggests a running hybrid model, and Maserati reportedly says that an electric battery model will arrive at some point.
Why is this car billed as a Maserati reset? The automaker views the MC20 as a spiritual successor to the MC12, which was really a reworked Ferrari Enzo. However, when the MC20 finally arrives, its internal engine should make it a complete Maserati supercar from start to finish. Yes, driving a 600 hp mid-engine super sports car with Maserati’s unique style and performance is certainly a big deal for the Modena-based company.
In fact, it is so important that Maserati connect the MC20 debut for his hometown as a fresh start.
Maserati will present the MC20 at a major event called MMXX: The Way Forward. It will take place in Modena in September, although a specific date has not yet been announced.
