A new era has dawned at Maserati South Africa with the arrival of the very first Maserati MC20 super sports cars.
The very first unit – finished in a multi-layer Bianco Audace paint and with a raft of unique carbon fibre detailing – has been delivered to its new owner. A second MC20, finished in the stunning Blu Infinito colour, is currently on display at Maserati House in Johannesburg.
“The Maserati MC20 welcomes a new era for Maserati, both globally and in South Africa. As a super sports car, the MC20 represents the pinnacle of performance and a return to Maserati-unique power plants with its Nettuno engine.
“As a nameplate, it signals the return to racing in closed-wheel competitions for a brand that was born on the racetrack. And for Maserati South Africa, it opens the order book for the MC20, the Levante Hybrid and soon, the new Maserati Grecale,” says Nagesh Naidoo, Dealer Principal of Maserati Johannesburg.
Each Maserati MC20 that will be delivered to a South African customer in 2022 has been designed and built exclusively to order.
Customers spend time with the Maserati team in the Maserati Configuration Room to design and specify their model under the Fuoriserie customisation programme. They also have the option of visiting the Modena manufacturing plant to view their super sports car being built.
“The MC20 is completely bespoke and only available in very limited numbers globally. In this, as in its performance, design and motorsport heritage, it is a true successor to the legendary MC12,” says Nagesh.
The MC20 is a mid-engine super sports car that offers a select few the thrill of its biturbo Nettuno V6 engine, which delivers 630 horsepower and 750 Newton metres in a carbon-bodied supercar that weighs less than 1500 kg*. Top speed is rated at over 326 km/h and the zero to 100 km/h sprint is dispatched in 2,88 seconds.
