Powering the new MC20 supercar is Maserati’s Nettuno engine, a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine. This powerplant produces 630 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque. With a weight of 3,307 lbs, its power-to-weight ratio is best-in-class. Maserati notes that the MC20’s combination of a weight power will allow it to sprint from 0 to 60 in under 2.9 seconds. It will also have a top speed of over 201 mph.
For the MC20’s design, Maserati took inspiration from their history. In the front of the supercar, shadows of the MC12’s design are included in the grille and placement of the hood’s air vents. Unlike the MC12, however, the MC20 does feature butterfly doors that Maserati says provide function and ergonomics. As for the overall aerodynamics of the MC20, Maserati tuned it to perfection. To be more specific, they put it through over 2,000 hours in the Dallara Wind Tunnel. This allowed Maserati’s designers to create a sleek vehicle with a drag coefficient under 0.38. And if you’re looking for a rear spoiler, that’s a bit hidden as it’s an active and discreet rear wing.
