The protagonist of this film will certainly not be afraid of speed. The pictures contain a brand new Maserati MC20.
The home of the Trident is back to stun the world with the launch of the MC20. MC stands for Maserati Corse, echoing the name of the 2004 MC12 supercar. On the other hand, the number 20 indicates the year the car was introduced. The two-seater sports car took fans of the brand back to the golden years of Maserati, Exceptional sporty design. In some stylistic elements, you remember the MC12, even though it’s not a supercar with a V12 engine.
In fact, the MC12 is equipped with the Ferrari F140, a V12 derived from the engine installed on the Ferrari Enzo, with a tilt angle of 65 degrees and a displacement of 5,998 cc. On the other hand, the MC20 launched the Neptune, 630 hp twin-turbo V6 engine, the flagship of Maserati’s technology division, able to push the car at a speed of 325 km / h, 730 Nm of torque. A monster as you will see in the video below. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h occurs in just 2.9 seconds, while it takes 8.8 seconds to cover 0 to 200. The car, in addition to being a splinter, is also aesthetically futuristic. The supercar is aggressive, but retains a classic touch. The MC20 has the following dimensions: length 467 cm, width 197 cm, height 122 cm.
Another feature is the doors that open upwards, making passenger access scenic and very practical. The cockpit is elegant and innovative, with two 10-inch screens, one for instrumentation and one for entertainment. The MC20 is also very light, due to the massive presence of carbon fiber. In fact, the structure was designed with Dallara. In addition to this closed version, Maserati launched the Spyder and a full electric model will arrive in the future, also taking into account Modenese’s commitment to Formula E. Listening to the sound of the car at full acceleration, one can tell that the electric future can wait. Alfa Romeo, Disco Volante based on Ferrari is back? Here is a preview view (video).
The pearl of this exquisite jewel is derived specifically from the 3.0-liter V6 engine with 90-degree cylinder banks with dry sump lubrication, equipped with a dual spark plugs system and pre-chamber ignition derived from Formula 1. The engine is powered by 2 turbochargers, direct and indirect fuel injection system at 350 bar through two injectors per cylinder, for a total of twelve. The engine is also partly derived from the Ferrari SF90 street-mounted V8 Ferrari F154 and adopts some components of the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s V6 Alfa Romeo 690T engine. Eight-speed dual-clutch transmission in an oil bathwith 6 power ratios and two comfort ratios, is located in the rear and is supplied by American Tremec, or the same Corvette C8.
The Maserati, whose speed exceeded 300 km / h
Mechanically, the Trident car is a work of art. The suspension, with a telescoping triangle geometry with a virtual steering axle with Bilstein shock absorbers, features automatic electronic tuning. On the other hand, the braking system is made by Brembo. Steel discs are available in 380mm front with 6-piston calipers and 350mm rear with 4-piston calipers, also carbon ceramic in 390mm and 360mm. The MC20 features 20-inch alloy wheels, developed in collaboration with Japan’s Bridgestone, from 245/35 at the front and 305/30 at the rear. From the web, there are always very strange films. Look at the car wash in a very dirty Ferrari Roma: Watch what happens (video).
Both the chassis and aerodynamic floor are designed to maximize efficiency and downforce, generating around 100kg of downforce at speeds above 200 km/h. In the video below, you can appreciate the interior design. The seats are supplied by Sabelt and are finished in Alcantara and black carbon fiber to avoid reflections on the windshield. The AutoTopNL video below shows the incredible power of the MC20. On German motorways (Autobahn), there are no speed limits. Drivers can push hard, without worrying about fines, but exceeding 300 km/h on the highway still carries risks. Being not a track, a misunderstanding is enough to cause a tragic accident. The guy behind the wheel wanted to test himself and test the Italian car.
The car’s acceleration ability is evident from the very first laps. Perhaps taming it below 130 km/h is more difficult, rather than pushing it at full speed on the straight road. The driver appears to be very happy with the MC20’s race, reaching a top speed of 304 km/h, verified by GPS, while the car’s digital speedometer reads 313 km/h. The two-seater Maserati could go to the 325, but the tester was satisfied. This video will make your eyes roll. This car has to be driven on the track to get the most out of it, but in Germany motorways become real circuits. This is not the first time that this stretch of road has become the extraordinary site of speed without limits.
