MC20 stands for Maserati Corse or Maserati Racing, and the company aims to mark its comeback to motorsport on in the year.

The driving modes in ascending order based on their sportiness are:

  • Wet
  • GT
  • Sport
  • Corsa.

Stability control, suspension, and gear change can be adjusted.

Additionally, you can turn off the ESC completely, and in Sport and Corsa mode, the suspension can also be set back to soft.

The new Maserati MC20 is more reliable and forward-looking. It does not have to be a pure design object but is developed and built for its purpose.

An engine that offers performance but is still economical, with Alcantara racing seats, function-oriented controls, and Android Automotive as the infotainment operating system. Soon a hybrid version will be available.

MC20 Exterior Design

The Maserati MC20 weighs only 1,470 kg with 630 hp. It's an excellent power-to-weight ratio of 2.33 kg/hp, and the specific power/liter is 210 hp.

The MC20 has the stunning gullwing doors, as a coupe. The door can be opened with a button from the inside and equipped with sensors that recognize obstacles.

The entire chassis is made of carbon fiber and is essentially used for coupes, convertibles, and EVs in all three models. 

The only difference is that the chassis roof is entirely open with a convertible, but there are side supports. The electric option is also a little heavier in terms of chassis as it carries a large battery inside.

The Maserati MC20 features a new, smoother, and clearer Maserati logo shape. The rim measures 20 inches, and Maserati deliberately avoids massive spoilers. 

The underbody of the car is designed tightly closed to control airflow.

Therefore, the downforce is obtained from the bottom of the vehicle so that the top remains sleek and smooth.

There is an optional lift system available that could place the Maserati MC20 5 cm higher at the front of the basement garage ramp.

Maserati MC20 Interior

It is purposely black and clear in the interior to visualize a real race car. The mode transition is mechanical, as well as premium watches inspired.

The MC20 features a new Maserati steering wheel, with a start button and also an Alcantara cover. The paddles shift are made of carbon or aluminum.

The seats are equipped with Alcantara covers, as the entire MC20 concept design thought it would work.

Overall, microfiber is often used in racing and is more breathable than animal leathers, and is even sporty because you won't be moving around here and there.

In terms of seat comparison, the sports seat provides a pleasing experience for a luxury sports car. Also, individuals with above-average height still have plenty of headroom.

Since supercars are usually very complex, Maserati includes a digital rearview mirror that provides a camera image from behind.

Maserati MC20 offers the Android Automotive system for multimedia applications as the second vehicle after the Polestar 2.

Also, a 10.25-inch instrument screen and infotainment system available inside. The audio system starts with six speakers; 12 from the Sonus Faber are optional. You have 50 liters of storage space at the front and 100 liters in the back.
