Say what you want against Youtube Star Supercar Blondie, but she got the first dibs on the Maserati MC20 – at least through a video that Klaus Busse, Maserati’s design director himself, had sent her.
There’s a lot to rave about the MC20. Aside from the fact that it’s the first supercar from Modena in 15 years, the 3.0-liter Nettuno V6 that sits in its hood is homemade – although that element was somewhat questioned in a previous report.
On the other hand, there is a ton of things for the Nettuno to do, such as using the Formula 1-inspired addition of another combustion event to increase performance. This gives the MC20 around 621 horsepower (463 kilowatts) and 729 newton meters (538 pound-feet) and enables a sprint of 2.9 seconds to 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) and a top speed of 201 miles per hour (201 Miles per hour). 323 km / h).
The lightweight carbon fiber construction of the MC20 weighs 1,500 kilograms. The super sports car thus advertises a first-class power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kg per hp.
If you’d like to hear what the Nettuno V6 sounds like, the video on this page includes a part where Busse started the MC20. Then he had someone else spin the car while he noted the exhaust. It’s a great rumble that can epitomize what the first in-house Maserati engine should sound like.
The rest of the video gives us a sneak peek at Modena’s newest flagship and shows us what the $ 210,000 supercar looks like in metal, not just in press images. Plus, it will be next year for the MC20 to hit the market so it will be a wait.
