Maserati is making a thrilling return to the world of GT2 racing with their new sports car, the MC20. This highly anticipated vehicle is set to be revealed in September, and it promises to bring Maserati back into the spotlight in the racing world.
Powerful Engine and Impressive Performance
The MC20 is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine with two turbochargers, producing an impressive 621bhp at 7,500rpm and revving up to 8,000rpm. The engine boasts 538 lb-ft of torque from as little as 3,000 rpm, making it a force to be reckoned with on the track. With a dry sump engine weighing less than 220kg and an 11:1 compression ratio, the MC20 is set to be a formidable competitor in the GT2 racing circuit.
Modified MC20 for GT2 Racing
Maserati is no stranger to the world of racing, and the modified MC20 is set to take the brand back to its roots. The GT2 racing version of the MC20 will feature enhancements and modifications specifically designed for the competitive racing environment, ensuring that Maserati’s comeback is nothing short of spectacular.

With a boost in power to 493 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque, the 718 Cayman GT4 RS features a naturally aspirated flat-six engine with a 9,000 rpm rev limit. This sports car also receives the Porsche exclusive dual-clutch (PDK) transmission, making it a worthy competitor for Maserati’s MC20.
