Maserati announced a unique production MC20 prototype dedicated to British racer Sir Stirling Moss, who died April 12 at the age of 90.
The goal for the MC20 is to underline Maserati’s sporting vocation, and return the brand to a leading role on the racing circuits – the last time they won a world championship was in 2010 with the MC12.
The MC20 will be the first car to adopt a new engine 100% designed, developed and produced by Maserati.
The latest rumor suggests Maserati is developing its own twin-turbocharged V6 for the MC20. It could make over 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts), and It’ll allegedly pair with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Other rumors hint at Maserati one day offering a hybrid model with a fully electric version also possible.
Maserati is still keeping details about the powertrain, performance, and features under lock and key, and it is likely won’t know more about it until Maserati reveals it at the September event.
