The first brand-new Maserati model in roughly four years and the first new halo car in 16 years is an exciting one — with butterfly doors, a mid-mounted engine, more than 600 horsepower, an aspirational price tag. Meet the new MC20.
On Wednesday, the Italian automaker unveiled its new flagship halo car. It's powered by the Nettuno engine: a twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter V6 that produces a claimed 621 horsepower. The company said this engine is "100% Maserati," despite Road & Track spotting some similarities between it and engines used by Ferrari and Alfa Romeo. Regardless, it should be a pretty sweet unit.
With the help of a dual-clutch automatic transmission, all of that power is sent to the rear wheels. There's a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis that's built to accommodate the coupe and the upcoming convertible and electrified versions. All in all, the MC20 weighs in at 3,306 pounds.
