Maserati returns to the supercar market with a twin-turbo, V-6 coupe

The 2021 Maserati MC20 is a mid-engined supercar that the Italian company unveiled in September 2020. The brand’s first supercar since 2005, the MC20 is considered a spiritual successor to the MC12, although the two are far from related. Not only the 2021 Maserati MC20 is smaller, but it’s also powered by a twin-turbo V-6 engine instead of a V-12, and it features a less aggressive exterior design. The 2021 Maserati MC20 is likely aimed at supercars like the Ferrari F8 Tributo, McLaren 720S, and Lamborghini Huracan Evo. The 2021 MC20 is powered by a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V-6 that’s described as "100% Maserati." However, this mill is actually loosely based on Ferrari’s F154 V-8 engine and features parts from other FCA powerplants. The 2021 MC is Maserati’s fourth production mid-engined vehicle, following the Bora (1971-1978), Merak (1972-1983), and MC12 (2004-2005). Let’s find out more about the 2021 Maserati MC20 in the review below.

Maserati's "Brand-New" V-6 Engine Is Actually Based on a Ferrari V-8

Maserati’s "Brand-New" V-6 Engine Is Actually Based on a Ferrari V-8

The Maserati MC20’s V-6 engine isn’t as unique as the company claims

Maserati introduced the MC20 supercar with a twin-turbo V-6 engine called Nettuno. The company claims that this engine is new and "100% Maserati," but the mill actually shares parts with powerplants found in Ferrari and Alfa Romeo models. As speculated long before Maserati unveiled the car, the Nettuno engine is derived from a Ferrari V-8 and is similar to a V-6 that Alfa Romeo offers in high-performance versions of the Giulia and Stelvio.

The Maserati MC20 Actually Sounds Decent In This New Video

Here’s what the Maserati MC20’s V-6 engine sounds like

Maserati just unveiled the MC20, a spiritual successor to the iconic MC12 with more than 600 horsepower on tap. But while it’s powerful enough to leave the MC12 behind, the MC20 is viewed by purists as a less attractive alternative due to the fact that it’s powered by a turbocharged V-6 engine. Granted, sports car fitted with V-8 and V-12 engines sound better when you floor it, but this new footage of the MC20 proves that Maserati’s new V-6 doesn’t sound half bad.

The Maserati MC20 May Be Cool But It’s No MC12 Follow-Up

Lacking in almost all areas including price, exclusivity, and performance, the MC20 is just another supercar

The Maserati MC20 is the first supercar to come from the legendary Modenese automaker since the mid-’00s and, right as it arrived, the MC20 has sprung comparison after comparison with Maserati’s last mid-engined creation, the MC12. Many have already labeled the MC20 as the ’spiritual successor of the MC12,’ but we beg to differ.

Maserati Wants The MC20 To Go Racing, Does It Stand a Chance?

Analyzing Maserati’s latest bid at racing glory by looking back at its predecessors

Maserati unveiled the MC20, its first supercar in 15 years, and claimed this 621-horsepower, mid-engined model is the sign of rejuvenation for the brand and, also, the perfect way for the Trident to go back to its roots.

That means, of course, that Maserati plans to build a racing version of the MC20 and thus some questions arise right off the bat: On the one hand, where will it race? And, on the other, will it stand a chance against the opposition? Read on to find out our take on Maserati’s official return to racing.

Thanks to the MC20, Maserati Is Finally Relevant Again

The Maserati MC20 Comes as a Successor to the MC12 and Mark’s Maserati’s Return to the World of Racing

I would be lying if I told you that I’ve been particularly pleased with Maserati’s lineup over the last decade. Once a company synonymous with performance and luxury as, at least in my eyes, become quite uninteresting. Now, 15 years after the MC12 thrived, Maserati is introducing the mid-engined MC20 – a car that doesn’t only mark Maserati’s return to the world of racing, but also gives the company’s lineup something unique and attractive. I’d even go so far as to say that this is exactly what Maserati needed if it’s going to remain relevant this decade.

Maserati MC20 Fast Facts and Photo Gallery

While 2020 has been a dramatic, dark, and twisted year for most automakers, Maserati is hoping to make the best of the latter half, and it all starts with the car you see here – the all-new MC20 sports car. As a spiritual successor to the MC12, the MC20 carries around some significant DNA of its ancestor – predominantly located in the front end – a pair of wide-opening butterfly doors, and features a mid-engine configuration. That engine, by the way, is an all-new unit built by the company (instead of Maserati borrowing from Ferrari yet again – that displaces 3.0-liters and pumps out a total of 621 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque. These figures, ladies and gentlemen, make it the most powerful production car to come from Maserati to date, just barely beating out the MC12 some 15 years later.

Maserati’s “All-New” MC20-Bound Nettuno V-6 Engine Is Shrouded in Lies and Deceit

It looks like there’s some Ferrari and Alfa Romeo DNA in Maserati’s Nettuno engine after all

For years, Maserati has been buying engines from Ferrari to power its cars. It wasn’t a bad arrangement at all, really, but that’s also why the recent news that it was building its own all-new engine – known as the Nettuno V-6 – in house was such a big deal. It’s finally starting to look like Maserati is staking its own independence from Maranello, but now, it looks like the Nettuno engine isn’t as all-new as Maserati led us all to believe.

The MC20 will be the fourth road-legal Maserati with a midship layout

Maserati has confirmed that a new mid-engined sports car is underway in 2020. Although the official unveiling was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the new MC20 will arrive by the end of the year. The MC20 won’t be a successor to the MC12 though. Instead of a highly exclusive supercar, Maserati is preparing a more affordable sports car that will probably go against the Ferrari F8 Tributo and the McLaren 720S. It will also be the company’s first mid-engined car since 2005, the first in 15 years as of 2020. A rare bird among Maserati’s long list of front-engined cars, the MC20 will become one of only seven midship vehicles built by the company in its long existence.
