Maserati’s MC20 made its Northern California debut this weekend during the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event, where the vehicle appeared before crowds of fans on the Concept Lawn. The MC20, marking a new era for the Trident brand, was greeted with adulation by VIP spectators who took in the sleek lines of the mid-engine, two-seater sports car.
The Pebble Beach Concept Lawn is considered one of the highlights of Monterey Car Week in California, and the MC20 was there to impress with eyes watching from all over the globe as the event returned for 2021. The Concept Lawn showcases forward thinking design and innovation, which was more than evident in the striking aerodynamics of the MC20. Boasting a top speed of over 326 km/h, the MC20 is the first Maserati with a carbon fiber monocoque and, weighing less than 1500 kg, the super sports car also features the powerful new Maserati Nettuno engine. The Nettuno engine is a V6 that incorporates F1-derived technology to create an exceptional power-to-weight ratio and delivering 0-100 km/h acceleration in 2.88 seconds.
The new Maserati MC20 is a car with racing DNA and a worthy successor to the legendary MC12. In fact, the MC in the name stands for “Maserati Corse,” the Italian word for “racing.” The 630 hp Nettuno engine ensures the racing heritage of Maserati is felt by the driver, and it is also a return to Maserati producing its own power units after a hiatus of more than 20 years. Built in Italy, the Maserati MC20 is 100% Made in Modena.
