On the track in the video we observed 2 MC20s. The first one has a white exterior. This vehicle has absolutely no camouflage except partially shielded rear fenders on each side. Most of the time, the driver drives the car at high speed. Sometimes we find the car slowing down excessively. This may be the intention of the vehicle evaluation team to have valuable comments in the finalization process.
The second MC20 was covered in complete camouflage. Drivers test all types of driving, from skidding and drifting. It is also a way for engineers to adjust stability and traction control settings, along with other electronic driving aids.
MC20 underlines the sporting qualities of the new model: MC stands for Maserati Corse, and 20 sao to the year 2020, which marks the beginning of a new chapter in Maserati history. The first racing car to carry the Trident logo was the Tipo 26, the number of which also ca the year of manufacture. Likewise the MC20 respects this tradition. The car is the natural heir to the MC12, which in 2004 marked Maserati’s return to competition after a 37-year absence. From 2004 to 2010, the MC12 won 22 races (including 3 victories at the 24 Hours of Spa) and 14 titles in the various FIA GT championships (manufacturers, drivers and teams).
Maserati will return to the world of competition with the new MC20. This model will be built at the Modena plant, where modernization work is already underway on the production line to Tac, in particular, the electric version. At the same time, work has begun on setting up a new paint shop. All of this work at reducing the impact on the environment.
The Maserati MC20 is a newly unveiled supercar with a powerful 620 horsepower 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6.
After years of absence, Maserati officially returned to the supercar world with the supercar MC20. Accordingly, MC stands for Maserati Corse – the high-performance car manufacturing division of the Italian automaker, while the number 20 is taken from 2020 to mark an important milestone for Maserati. Maserati MC 2021 is a completely new supercar with a mid-engine configuration, aiming to compete with cult names like Lamborghini, Ferrari or McLaren.
Maserati said it has shortened the time as well as the cost of researching and developing the MC20 by applying test simulation technology. Up to 97% of the Maserati MC20’s dynamics tests are performed using computer simulation software. From the results obtained, a team of engineers fine-tuned the design and construction before putting the supercar to test runs at the racetrack and many practical operating conditions around the world.
The appearance of the Maserati MC20 was inspired by the 2005 MC12 model. The front end does not carry the aggressive and angular design that is common in today’s supercars. Instead, the dominant lines give a feeling of refinement and elegance. At the same time, the grille, front bumper and lights still carry the distinctive Maserati identity
Observed from the side, the Maserati MC20 has a 2-seater cockpit perfectly positioned between the two axes. Overall dimensions long x width x height 4,669 x 1,965 x 1,224 (mm) respectively and a wheelbase of 2,700 mm. The supercar is equipped with 20-inch wheels, front / rear tire sizes 245/35 and 305/30 respectively. Brembo’s high-performance brake shackles are painted in eye-catching blue.
The highlight at the rear is the familiar triangular rear lights of Maserati and the sporty rear bumper painted in dark colors. Two exhaust pipes are located above the air diffuser cluster. Unlike most supercars today, the Maserati MC20 is not equipped with a large rear spoiler. However, Maserati makes use of aerodynamic details around the car to MC20 to have a low coefficient of air drag and create a lot of pressure down the road (downforce) when operating.
