Maserati has released camo images of its new supercar MC20. Inspired by the Alfa Romeo 4C on the design side, the MC20 will come as a high performance and more accessible car on the price side.
Italian car maker Maserati was planning to introduce the 2020 Maserati MC20 sports car by the end of this month. However, we will not be able to see the supercar until September 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak. Finally, Maserati has released camouflage footage of the MC20 prototype that travels through the streets of Milan at night.
According to Maserati, the MC20 will be the successor of the Maserati MC12 (Tipo M144S), released in 2004. The new car also represents Maserati’s return to the racing class and will be the first new Maserati of the modern age. The MC20 will appear as a mid-engine sports car based on the discontinued Alfa Romeo 4C.
Maserati’s supercar back to the race: MC20
The MC20’s stylish mid-engine body style is supported by a carbon fiber cockpit derived from Alfa Romeo 4C, but its body is longer, wider and longer wheelbase than 4C. Although the MC12 is a limited edition supercar for track races, the MC20 is expected to be more accessible in terms of price and performance.
Maserati has not yet revealed details about the latest sports car, but there are a few tips. It is said that the MC20 will have a mid-mounted turbocharged V6 engine producing 600 horsepower connected to the eight-speed Getrag dual-clutch automatic transmission. It is also expected to arrive in the hybrid and fully electric version. The gasoline model will debut this year.
Finally, we think that the huge middle finger statue in the background of the photographs has not been overlooked. The sculpture made by Maurizio Cattelan is located in the heart of Piazza degli Affari. Like the statue, Maserati claims that the MC20 is a good symbol of Italian boldness.
