The MC20, a brand-new mid-engine model from Italian automaker Maserati, was unveiled in 2021. It was the company's first all-new mid-engine model in nearly two decades. The Maserati MC20 was supposed to debut in our market last year, but these plans were changed as a result of several setbacks. But now, the MC20 has finally been launched by the premium auto manufacturer in India, where it will initially be sold for Rs 3.69 crore (ex-showroom, India), ahead of the commencement of its deliveries, which are scheduled to begin in the upcoming weeks. Here is everything you need to know about the new MC20 supercar, from its design and mechanical specifications to its features and rivals.

Maserati MC20: Exterior Styling
For those unaware, the MC20 supercar is the successor to the MC12 and has the mid-engine layout. It is, therefore, difficult to compare the two. Both the vehicles have quite a few interesting resemblances such as the butterfly doors, the tapered front end featuring the slim grille as well as the sculpted wheel arches. Despite these similarities, the MC20 boasts a far more minimalist and clean design compared to its predecessor. Further, the supercar has more compact dimensions, lending the brand-new MC20 a sportier appearance.
The six colour options for the MC20 include - Rosso Vincente, Giallo Genio, Nero Essenza, Grigio Mistero, Bianco Audace, and Blu Infinito.
Maserati MC20: Mechanical Specifications
An in-house developed 3.0-litre V6 Nettuno twin-turbo petrol engine, tuned to churn out an impressive 630bhp of maximum power and 730Nm of peak torque, powers the MC20. Power is delivered to the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that is mated to the engine. Due to this, the MC20 supercar can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds and can attain a top speed of 325km/h.
With a claimed kerb weight of under 1,500kg and a power-to-weight ratio of more than 420bhp per tonne, the MC20 makes considerable use of carbon fibre and other lightweight components.
Maserati MC20: Interior Details
As one might anticipate, the MC20's cabin is primarily designed with driving enthusiasts in mind. A striking flat-bottomed three-spoke steering wheel with multiple media controls, drive mode controls, and long paddle shifters is present in the car. Moreover, a 10-inch digital instrument display is located behind the steering wheel. Additionally, there is a central 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which is essentially the only component the co-driver can use.
