Its been a long wait for the Maserati brand. Originally planned for a May unveiling, the premium Italian brand had to reschedule the premiere of its all-new super sportscar – the Maserati MC20. Kicking off in Modena, Italy – the home of the Maserati brand, the event will inaugurate the brand’s new era. The Maserati brand has been on a roll as of lately after unveiling its first electrified vehicle – the Ghibli Hybrid and the all-new trio of Trofeo high-performance models for its Levante, Quattroporte, and Ghibli.
The mid-engined 2021 Maserati MC20, is a return to a true performance supercar for the “Trident” brand. There is a lot planned for this new vehicle, with not only a gasoline-powered powertrain but electrified options as well.
The first version of the car to be released will be powered only by an internal combustion engine (ICE). It was recently unveiled that Maserati is planning to use it’s all-new in-house designed 3.0-liter “Nettuno” twin-turbo V6. The new power unit is a V90° architecture and features a dry-sump (a classic solution on super sportscars). It delivers 630CV (or about 621 horsepower) at 7500rpm and 730 Nm (or 538 lb.-ft) of torque from 3000 rpm with a specific power output of 210CV/liter (or 207 horsepower/liter). Maserati is also hard at work on a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) variant with a front e-axle, as well as a full battery electric vehicle (BEV) version of the car, which will probably debut for the 2022 model year.
The press conference will start today at 2:35 p.m. EST (Eastern Standard Time). You can watch it LIVE in the stream above. We will be covering more about this all-new FCA designed supercar later today, so stay tuned.
