Maserati MC-20

    On occasion it seems that Maserati has sat around longer for a renaissance than the artisans of the country Maserati originates from. Countless attempts to revive the company’s former glory, well, hasn’t quite worked out. Their latest plan? Introducing their stunning and majestic mid-engined MC-20. The MC is an abbreviation of Maserati Corse, or in English, Maserati Racing. The 20 stands for the year, 2020.

 

    The exterior of the car is quite marvelous. The five beautiful colors you can throw on the car are stunning when matched with the smooth, streamlined symbol of pure Italian power. The body of the car underwent multiple tests in the wind tunnel, with the best of the best Italian Aerodynamic-Engineers sculpting the MC20 into a pristine piece of artwork. The body is built around a central carbon-fiber tub created in collaboration with Dallara, which helped develop the carbon structures/framework for the Alfa-Romeo 4C and the Bugatti Chiron. This new car can come in either coupe or convertible form, giving the client more choices on their preference. What’s more, this new supercar only weighs around 3240 pounds, and with its powerful 90 degree V-6 Maserati calls the “Nettuno,” (Neptune in English) that gives it an excellent power to weight ratio of nearly 0.2 horsepower per pound, and a astounding 621 hp. The Nettuno has a total of 24-valves, port and direct fuel injection, plus 2 spark plugs per cylinder. Maserati Engineers have also made the engine more efficient than before. The MC-20 has a peak output of 621 hp at 7500 rpm (rotation per minute), meaning the Nettuno joins a club of elite, best of the best engines. All this power goes to a 8-gear dual-clutch transaxle, making the MC-20 very fast. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds, meaning it is more than 2 times faster than the average car. With a top speed of 202 mph, this is one of 2020’s most potent cars.

 

    The car is as beautiful on the inside as the outside. Made with the finest Alcantara leather and carbon fiber, the inside is very modern, and even though it is a supercar, it seems quite comfortable. The display is 10.25 inches, with multiple convenience options including it’s 4 modes: Wet, GT, Sport, and Corsa (Corsa is basically super-saiyan ultra-instinct for cars). It even includes tire pressure and exhaust valve settings, and anything else you would expect. The display is very clean, along with the futuristic-rev meter. The speakers are pristine Italian-made premium audio speakers. Using butterfly-doors, the car feels even more elegant. The MC-20 has a very fancy yet modern interior.

    The car would be a very solid competitor to rival brands in the market, and would probably be around $200,000 USD. However, this would be a very good deal, especially when the MC-20 looks so nice and is so powerful. In conclusion, this Italian beast that sounds like an absolute monster is out-standing in every aspect, so the MC-20 is worthy of the glorious Maserati Trident.
