Maserati MC20 makes its UK dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021
We already knew Maserati would be bringing their new supercar, the MC20 to Goodwood for the Festival of Speed, but seeing the bright blue finished, production-ready MC20 taking on the famous hill climb circuit at Goodwood is still an amazing sight for the thousands of car fans that gathered at the largest event of its kind in the UK.
The 27th Goodwood Festival of Speed is the chosen venue for several supercar builders to have their new car celebrating its dynamic debut, yesterday we already published the article on the Lotus Emira, today Maserati joins the list of dynamic launches with their blue finished MC20 that joined the Supercar Run for the 1.16-mile course.
Over the four days of the Goodwood event in West Sussex, the UK, the Maserati MC20 will be seen in action multiple times during the aforementioned Supercar Run, but also as a static display at the Supercar paddock, the MC20 was unveiled in 2020, hence the MC20 name, but it took Maserati nearly two years to finetune their first mid-engine supercar for the road.
The Maserati MC20 is made around a carbon-fiber monocoque that keeps the overall weight at only 1,500 kg, the Formula One derived V6 engine created in-house has been named the Maserati Nettuno, and she’s proudly on display next to the car at the Michelin Supercar Paddock for visitors to admire.
Maserati also brought their performance saloon to Goodwood, the impressive Ghibli Trofeo, finished in Nero Ribelle, and they also took it onto the hill climb circuit, roaring its 580 hp V8 engine that propels the four-seater to 62 mph from a standstill in as little as 4.3 seconds, and while this Ghibli and the Quattroporte are built at Grugliasco (Turin) at the Avvocato Giovanni Agnelli Plant (AGAP), the stunning Maserati MC20 is produced in Modena, at the historic Viale Ciro Menotti plant.
Both the Maserati Ghibli Trofeo and the Maserati MC20 will be in action during the four days of the Goodwood Festival of Speed during the Supercar Run hill climb, after which both cars will be driven back to the Michelin Supercar Paddock to be admired by the countless visitors.
