Watch The Maserati MC20 Hit 311 km/h On Nurburgring
The Maserati MC20 made its debut in 2022, developed through a collaborative effort between Maserati and the motorsport engineering company Dallara. The design work took place internally at Centro Stile Maserati in Turin, Italy, and the cars are assembled at the Viale Ciro Menotti plant in Modena.
One of the biggest highlights around the MC20 is its engine. For a long time, all Maserati car engines were built by Ferrari, and the Prancing Horse brand still makes engines for most of Maserati’s current cars and SUVs. However, Maserati took a different approach for the MC20, with a revolutionary powerplant developed wholly in-house.
The V6 engine dubbed Nettuno incorporates several aspects of F1 technology into its framework, resulting in a compact unit that generates 621 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque. This Maserati accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 2.9 seconds, reaching 0 to 200 km/h in 8.8 seconds, with a top speed of 325 km/h.
On the Nurburgring track, in racing mode, the MC20 demonstrated remarkable speed, as showcased in a video from the Sport Auto YouTube channel. It effortlessly exceeded 300 km/h, reaching 311 km/h with electronic stability control deactivated and Corsa mode engaged.
