The Festival Automobile International has named the Maserati MC20 as the “most beautiful supercar of the year 2021″ in an online awards ceremony held recently. The Maserati MC20 debuted in September 2020 at the MMXX international show in Modena.
“We are honoured to receive this coveted accolade, which recognises the work of an entire team who have made a wholehearted commitment to this unique project, creating a car that opens a new chapter in Maserati’s history,” said Klaus Busse, Maserati Head of Design.
Developed by the Maserati Innovation Lab and produced at the historic plant in Modena, MC20 is 100% made in Italy.
The most distinctive feature of the new super sports car is its exclusive butterfly doors, which are not only aesthetically stunning but also provide the driver and passengers with easier access, both inside and outside the cabin. This supercar is the first Maserati to have vertical headlights: a real revolution in the brand’s design criteria. The wide, low, horizontal rear light clusters are equally distinctive.
The MC20 presents a mix of elegance, sporting prowess and personality, and a genuine masterpiece of style, which inaugurates a new era for the Trident brand. Designed at the Centro Stile Maserati in Turin, the MC20 marks Maserati’s return to the super sports car segment, with a car that combines performance, groundbreaking technology and bold technical solutions.
The upper part of the car is a sculpted artwork, while its lower section is a concentrate of pure technology. The MC20’s design achieves a perfect balance between opposites, with the ideal mix between craftsmanship and engineering, which combines the unique quality of hand workmanship and the absolute precision of the most advanced production processes.
The Maserati MC20 sports the brand’s new 630 hp V6 Nettuno engine that delivers 0-100 km/h acceleration in under 2.9 seconds and a top speed over 325 km/h. The engine is 100% patented, conceived, designed and built entirely by Maserati.
