At the presentation event last night in Modena – attended by a public of 400 people – CEO Davide Grasso introduced the Maserati MC20 supercar
At the presentation event last night in Modena, CEO Davide Grasso declared the beginning of Maserati’s future introducing the MC20 supercar. An event that was exonerated with an exception during this pandemic: a public. Maserati was graced with what looked like a concession allowing a public of 400 people to witness the unveiling of the MC20 model. The Tipo 26 was the first Maserati car to wear the Tridente symbol in 1926 when the company first started to design and build its own cars. Today, the DNA of the house resurfaces as MC20 becomes the first car belonging to a new Era. Maserati Corse 2020 is the meaning behind the name of the newest Maserati supercar. The rediscovery of the company’s original sports DNA, of its dynamic roots and essential boldness. This marks the comeback of Maserati to its past, to reshape the future of the company. MC20 is the fruit of Italian engineering work combined with the Maserati aesthetic and refinement. Butterfly doors, the Nettuno engine, aerodynamic features and Alcantara leather seats. Raw carbon seems to be the essence from which the car has been sculpted and from which the future aesthetic of the company will draw inspiration from. The same carbon visible from the lower part of the car where engineering reigns. The interiors’ textures are built with laser technologies and the sound equipment is the result of a collaboration 100% made in Italy with Sonus Faber.
Nettuno engine — the heart of MC20 — is a Maserati patent. Entirely created in the company’s Modena branch for the first time in 20 years. A unique petrol engine V6 biturbo, with Formula 1 technologies that projects the company into the racing world. Thanks to this supercar, Maserati will be able to expand the range and upgrade some upcoming models of the Granturismo or the Maserati full electric — planned to be perfected by 2021. The Autodromo of Modena welcomes the presentation event organised by Maserati. Supposed to happen back in May, the event was postponed for health and safety reasons linked to Coronavirus. Last night saw the opening of a stage 23 meters high, 33 meters long and 30 meters wide with a rotating platform measuring 500 cm of diameter. The event Mmxx: time to be ambitious started at 20.35 yesterday night. 125 thousands people were the public watching from home the Youtube live streaming of the unveiling of the MC20 Maserati supercar, while 400 the crowd sitting in the audience of the Autodromo. The space was studded with historic models of Maserati that represented the past from which the company drew when thinking of the MC20. Pilot Andrea Bertolini — professional Maserati driver — was on stage with supercars-connoisseur Mr JWW while all the 400 guests sat clumped in the back. In what is an exception during the pandemic, this event was key to set the tone of the company’s future.
