New Maserati MC20 To Get Nettuno Twin-Turbo V6 With Over 600 HP

Maserati develops its own engine with F1-inspired technology

  • Maserati’s new supercar will get its power from a V6 with F1 technology

  • New engine will develop 613 horsepower

  • Engine was developed in-house by Maserati


Maserati has a lot going on including the upcoming MC20 supercar and a new electrified model expected to be the Maserati Ghibli.

Today, Maserati gave us a bit more information about the upcoming MC20 including its engine. Designed entirely in-house in Modena, the new powerplant is a 3.0-litre, twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that delivers an impressive 613 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 538 pound-feet of torque delivered between 3,000 and 5,500 rpm.

The engine called Nettuno will feature an exclusive pre-chamber combustion system with twin sparkplugs taken from Formula 1. This is a first for a road-going engine.

The fact that Maserati designed a new engine, and one that is so advanced, is news in and of itself. The fact that it will power a new flagship performance vehicle is obviously a big deal, but Maserati says the new V6 will be available on other models down the road.

Maserati can no longer source engines from Ferrari given that the prancing horse left the FCA portfolio in 2016. The Italian automaker has be struggling in recent years, but with innovations like this engine, it should be able to turn things around.

We can’t wait to see the new Maserati MC20 and the upcoming Maserati Ghibli hybrid.
