Maserati Builds Its First Engine In Over 20 Years For A New 630HP Supercar

It’s been 15 years since Maserati last graced us with a supercar: the uber-exclusive MC12. However, as impressive a car as the MC12 was, it borrowed a number of elements from the minds at Maranello, including a Ferrari F140 V12, as well as the chassis and transmission from the Enzo. Undoubtedly worthy components for building a supercar, but they speak nothing to Maserati’s own in-house capabilities.

With the unveiling of the 2021 Maserati MC20, the Italian brand returns to engine-building for the first time in over 20 years. And my, how they’ve chosen to make a comeback. The all-new twin-turbo V6 Nettuno puts out 630hp — taking the MC20 from 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and topping out at 202mph. Sitting at just a touch over 3,300lbs, the MC20 comes out best in its class with a weight/power ratio of 5.3lbs/hp. So it may have been a while since the last Modena supercar, but they sure as hell haven’t missed a beat. Open up the butterfly doors and you’ll find a lightweight, minimalist interior outfitted with only the necessities — controls are spread across two 10 inch screens, a center console, and a steering wheel. And the cherry on top of the whole spectacular cake might just be the hi-fi Sonus Faber sound system — an impressive rig exclusive to this supercar. The MC20 is expected to hit the US later this year, starting from $210,000.
