Brutal Sounds From Maserati’s Track Toy: MCXtrema

Presented as the Modena-based brand’s most powerful track car, the Maserati MCXtrema is a courageous and exceptional car from all points of view, designed for purist collectors and for the loyal customers of the brand, who wish to add a new “toy” to their garage that can swallow up the curbs of the most exciting tracks during private tests.

This latest creation from the Italian luxury brand stems from the creative and engineering partnership between the Centro Stile and the Maserati engineering team; it reflects the desire to create a racing car capable of passing on the legacy of the glorious Maserati MC12 in the world of competition, to inspire the Trident’s future racing production.

Limited to just 62 examples, the MCXtrema is based on the Maserati MC20, specifically the MC20 GT2. It inherits numerous components from this racing variant but sheds over 250 kg by utilizing extensive carbon fiber and eliminating unnecessary elements, weighing in at just 1,250 kg.

Power comes from a potent 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine enhanced with two new turbochargers, boosting power output to 740hp. This formidable power is channeled to the rear wheels through a 6-speed sequential manual transmission coupled with a mechanical limited-slip differential.

Watch the Maserati MCXtrema in action and enjoy the glorious sound of its V6 engine as it laps around Misano Circuit in Italy.
