Maserati MC20 Supercar Prototype Pays Tribute To Sir Stirling Moss

Moss’ link to Maserati goes back more than 50 years hence the livery on this Maserati MC20 Supercar Prototype


  • The MC20 is the follow-up to the MC12 from 2004-05.

  • The Maserati Corse badge confirms that the Italian car company will return to motorsports.

  • Will be powered by an entirely new in-house developed powertrain.


Very little product news has come from Maserati over the past few years. Even so, there’s been much talk about the Maserati Alfieri concept which was revealed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. At the time, it seemed like a shoo-in as the replacement for the Gran Turismo. It would seem as though the Maserati MC20 is not this car.

While there are next to no official details yet available on Maserati’s new supercar, some facts are evident. Maserati has confirmed that they will return to motorsports with the MC20 at some point in the future. Racing is in Maserati’s DNA. In fact, it was on this day, May 13th, in 1956 that Moss won the Monaco GP in a Maserati 250F.

Other near-facts pertain to the Maserati Alfieri which many thought would be the car company’s next supercar. This is not it as the Alfieri was a 4-seater while the MC20’s got room for two.

As for the powertrain, it’s unclear what it will be however Maserati has said that it was upgrading its Modena production line for electrified vehicles. Odds are it will get plug-in hybrid technology although a full-EV layout is not out of the question.

And no, you’re not the only one seeing the hand gesture…
