    Maserati Nettuno Engine Is A Twin-Turbo V6 With 630 Horsepower

    Maserati is gradually diminishing its reliance on Ferrari engines as the Modena-based marque is introducing an all-new powertrain developed entirely in-house. Dubbed “Nettuno,” the engine takes the shape of a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that weighs less than 220 kilograms (485 pounds). It uses a dry sump and an F1-derived pre-chamber combustion system featuring twin-spark plugs.

    And now for the juicy output numbers – 630 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 730 Newton-meters (538 pound-feet) of torque between 3,000 and 5,500 rpm. It revs up to 8,000 rpm and has a firing order of 1-6-3-4-2-5. It boasts a specific power output of 210 hp / liter and represents the first new engine developed by Maserati in 20 years.
    Naturally, we’ll see it first in the hotly anticipated MC20 supercar scheduled to debut during the “MMXX: The time to be audacious” event programmed for September 9-10. It will eventually trickle down to lesser models of Maserati’s revamped lineup where it will be dialed down. According to a recent report from Automotive News Europe, it will make 542 hp in the sports cars and 523 hp in the SUVs. Noticed how we used the plural? That’s because the Levante will be joined by a new SUV in 2021.

    Guess they passed on the Blackwing V8. That would pretty much be an exclusive engine for them.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    When you look at an engine like this -- the complexity, the engineering, the sheer number of parts, the money -- it can easily justify a shift to electric motors for vehicle propulsion ... ignoring the the current challenges of battery technology. Once those are conquered, this beautiful piece of machinery will be relegated to a museum just as those very intricate timepieces that used to be worn on the wrists of humans.

    Maserati and Alfa Romeo are really worse off than Lincoln, Cadillac , Jaguar , Lexus and all the other struggling luxury brands...
