The Maserati MC20 is the newest addition to the Maserati lineup, where the “MC” refers to Maserati Corse. This is a sign that the Italian automaker will soon have a variant of the car which is only for track use. The global premiere of the MC20 was on the 10th of September where it was shown to the world as the first Maserati with butterfly doors.

The current version has a 3.0L V6 mid-engine which produces 621 horsepower. Its acceleration and top speed figures impress us a lot too. However, the torque numbers have not been announced yet. What makes the car even faster is its extremely light weight, which is mainly due to the Carbon Fiber Monocoque.

The new Maserati has 4 different driving modes: GT, Sport, Corsa, and Wet.

- GT: the everyday driving mode where performance and comfort really meet.

- Sport: Stiffer suspension and faster gear shifting make the Sport mode perfect for the track.

- Corsa: Maximum power, super-fast gear shifting, constantly opened exhaust valves and reduced traction control make the Corsa mode the utmost experience of the MC20.

- Wet: Easier control when raining or on humid asphalt, especially in acceleration and cornering. Engine boost is limited to achieve this together with all the dynamic controls of the car.

Auto Trendy’s take:

It is always astonishing to look at cars which are different from the rest and which are made for a unique kind of experience, when new materials and technologies are used for producing faster and at the same time safer, and stronger vehicles. The Maserati MC20 is definitely an example of what is to be expected in the sports car sector.
