The manufacturer with the trident, via its Maserati Genuine Accessories range, now offers buyers of the very exclusive MC20 a protective cover mimicking the camouflage livery used on the development prototypes of the Italian sports car.
This protective cover unveiled in the attached teaser video, comes in the form of an elastic fabric in blue and white (with some red and green notes taken from the Italian flag), whose “camouflage” patterns are inspired by those body glimpses of the MC20 development prototypes. This specific decoration is made here using the terms “MC20” and “Maserati”, the trident emblem of the transalpine manufacturer also being present and visible in particular on the roof of the vehicle.
The Modena manufacturer has decidedly a weakness for these “camouflage” liveries, since last May it presented an MC20 prototype with the original livery, dressed in geometric patterns similar to those offered here, but paying homage to the late Sir Stirling Moss, who died on April 12, 2020 at the age of 90 (the British driver won the 1956 Monaco Grand Prix at the wheel of a Maserati 250F).
The new Maserati MC20, which has also just been awarded the prize for the most beautiful Supercar of the year 2020 at the Festival Automobile International de Paris, is presented as the heir to the Maserati MC12 and will be the subject of a version competition that will mark the return of the Italian brand in motorsport.
The MC20 is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 unit with a 90 ° V-shaped architecture, installed in a central position and equipped with a dry sump as well as an innovative pre-chamber combustion system inspired by that used in Formula 1, developing 630 hp and 730 Nm. Combined with an 8-speed automatic gearbox, this engine will enable it to achieve 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds before reaching 325 km / h at top speed.
