Maserati MC20 Images Leaked Ahead of Reveal

One day before making its official debut.

  • First images of the Maserati MC20 revealed a day ahead of the car’s official debut.

  • The MC20 will be built in Italy.

  • The new supercar should use a high-output hybrid powertrain.

The all-new Maserati MC20 is scheduled to make its world debut on September 9th at 2:30 PM EST, but images have leaked on the web, and here they are.

The MC20, or what the brand calls its “super sports car,” marks a new era for the brand. It sports butterfly doors, ripping a page out of the strategy books of Lamborghini and McLaren, but honestly, we were expecting a somewhat wilder design. Oh, the Maserati MC20 still looks drop-dead gorgeous, no doubt.

As a reminder, the Maserati MC20 will be designed, engineered and built in Italy, rolling out of the brand’s factory in Modena. MC20 stands for Maserati Corse 2020, marking the company’s return to racing.

We still don’t know what engine will find its way in the middle of the car yet, but the Italian automaker will likely choose something more potent than the turbo 1.75L four-cylinder engine that’s found in the Alfa Romeo 4C—the MC20 will reportedly use the latter’s architecture.

However, we know it will benefit from a hybrid powertrain, as the Maserati has announced that all future vehicles will use hybrid or fully electric propulsion. We’re also expecting an electric-only variant of the MC20 at some point, too.

The company’s last race car was the glorious MC12, built in 2004 and 2005. It won 22 races through 2010, including three 24 Hours of Spa victories and 14 Championship titles in the FIA GT Series. The street-legal MC12 boasted a 6.0L V12 tuned by Ferrari, which produced 621 horsepower (630 PS). We initially thought the MC20 would be more potent, but now, we’re not so sure.

The Maserati MC20, which was scheduled to be unveiled at the of May—before COVID-19 derailed that plan—will join a small lineup consisting of the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans as well as the Levante midsize crossover. The next-generation GranTurismo and GranCabrio should debut sometime in 2021 with a fully electric powertrain, while a small crossover should eventually be introduced as well.
