Maserati Returns to GT2 Racing: It is About Modified MC20
The MC20 supercar, designed for the GT2 class, will take to the track with extraordinary aerodynamics. Following revised suspensions, and lightweight quick-release covering, it has come back with a new appearance. The GT2 is Maserati’s comeback to grand tourer racing. The MC20 supercar has been modified in this way. Without denial, this is one of the most exciting news of 2023. Especially for car lovers, are now eagerly waiting for the end result.
More details about the car
The same twin-turbocharged V-6 engine powers the racer, but it’ll likely produce more power than the 621 horsepower of the road-legal car. The GT2-spec MC20 has adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars, as well as a massive rear wing made of carbon fiber. Maserati will compete in the GT2 European Series with a track-ready MC20 supercar. The carmaker released the first photographs of the race vehicle today. The GT2 will be unveiled in its entirety at the 24 Hours of Spa in June.
Comparison with other models
In terms of performance, the GT2 class falls in between the GT4 and GT3 classes. Other homologated GT2 vehicles, such as variants of the Mercedes-AMG GT, KTM X-Bow, and Brabham BT63, are also excellent in comparison. The GT2-spec MC20 will use the same Nettuno twin-turbocharged V-6 engine as the road car. The engine in the normal MC20 produces 621 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque. But Maserati claims the race vehicle brings it “to a greater level.” Maserati also emphasizes the carbon-fiber core monocoque and lightweight. The full-composite bodywork incorporates quick-release panels in the middle of a race.
The MC20-based GT2 continues Maserati’s comeback to racing, which began with the brand’s participation in Formula E earlier this year. Throughout the first five rounds, the Maserati Formula E team collected three points and retired four times. Fans are now waiting to see what is going to happen next.
