Maserati MC20

“The all-new MC20 marks Maserati’s launch into a new era,” says Glen Sealey, COO of Maserati Australia and New Zealand.

“Elegant and sporty, efficient and lightweight – it’s a stunning supercar and clear statement of intent. We’re delighted to welcome the MC20 to Australia.”

The all-new MC20 – MC for Maserati Corse and 20 for 2020, the year of its world première – is Maserati’s first supercar in 15 years. It is powered by the bespoke Nettuno engine, developed 100% by Maserati and featuring patented F1 technology.

Producing a mighty 470kW (630bhp) and 730Nm, the lightweight V6 dispatches 0-100km/h in under 2.9seconds before going on to a top speed of 325km/h. Designed with an eye firmly on the future, the MC20 will also come with a EV powertrain in due course.

With assistance from renowned racing chassis builder Dallara, the MC20 features an innovative carbonfibre monocoque, giving the optimum balance between high torsional rigidity and light weight for performance.

Unifying the chassis and engine is what we call sculptured engineering – the process of bringing together in perfect harmony the design and engineering aspects of the car with a visual aesthetic that removes the need for overt active aerodynanics, a trend that has long-bedevilled the supercar category.

One of the most dramatic and unique stylistic effects of the MC20 exterior are its beautiful scenographic butterfly doors, which offer best in class ergomonics ingress / egress. The MC20 is also equipped with an E-Latch electronic side door opening system. This innovative feature not only gives the MC20 a technological feel, but further contibutes to the sleek design.

Inside, you will find an elegantly minimalist cockpit to focus concentration on the driving experience – yet it retains the luxury and craftmanship that defines a Maserati. A carbonfibre central tunnel and beautifully-milled metallic bezels are further nods to a strong design aesthetic.

An 8-speed dual clutch transmission, adjustable suspension, five driving modes – Wet, GT, Sport, Corsa and ESC off – combine to ensure a driving experience like no other.

Recommended Retail Pricing is $438,000 in Australia, NZ$390,000 in New Zealand. All 2021 allocations are sold out.
