    LEAKED: The Maserati MC20

    LEAKED: The Maserati MC20 Before You're Supposed To See It
    Carbuzz
    BY AARON BRZOZOWSKI
    9/9/2020








    The Maserati MC20 - the next supercar from Italy's storied Maserati sports car brand, named in the same fashion as the MC12 homologation special from 2004 to 2005 - has leaked online ahead of its official debut via AutoTimesNews. Included in the leak were some official-looking photographs of the car, for the first time not clad head-to-toe in obfuscating camouflage, along with some purported details about its construction and powertrain. Extra photos were also leaked by Italian Wheel on Facebook.

    If the details are true, it would render the MC20 on the same level as the Ford GT supercar for performance, with similar weight, power, and acceleration
    According to AutoTimesNews, the Maserati MC20 features an aluminum and composite body that keeps weight to a respectable 3,240 pounds, with an interior that's all Alcantara and carbon fiber. The cabin boasts a digital instrument panel and a push-button gear selection system.

    As for performance, it's said the MC20 will be able to scoot to 100 kph (62 mph) in less than 2.9 seconds, thanks to a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 mounted mid-ship that produces up to 630 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque, and the supercar will reportedly top out just above 200 mph. A battery-electric version is expected to launch, as well, with 0-to-100 kph performance of just 2.8 seconds, and about 240 miles of total range on a full charge.
    That might be a bit more than coincidence; Maserati has said that it intends to take the new MC20 racing, just like the MC12 before it, although it hasn't divulged what class or series is being targeted. The Ford GT was originally developed to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016, part of the FIA World Endurance Championship, so that might well be where the MC20 ends up seeing competition use, as well.

    This thing is already dead on arrival from a performance stand point, The figures at least to 60 are not that different from a C8, obviously the power and suspension gives it track advantage, but not for long, a Z06 is going to eat it alive

    Nice, but how many of these similarly styled supercars do we need?

    I'm indifferent on this one...to me it looks like a generic "Supercar Kit Car" with a Maserati badge on the front end. Performance specs seem pretty strong tho, just expect better from an established automaker.

    The problem is that it breaks no new ground

    The SSC Tuatara is way better looking:

    That's even worse. Only thing on that that tells me it's a Maserati is the crown logo, otherwise it could be any brand. I'm sure it's a thrilling ride, but for the kind of price I don't want the word "generic" attached to it.

    Will this Maserati have Chrysler switches inside also?

    The face of that car looks like it is literally about to break down crying.

    The problem is not that ‘what is quicker’ The problem is the money they will want for it. If They priced it say around $85,000.00 an up, then it would be worth it, anything above that, it’s neither special enough or ground breaking enough
