Maserati’s MC20 super sports car has had its first public appearance at the Goodwood’s 27th Festival of Speed, taking on the famous hill climb in the Supercar Run.
Over the four-day motoring event, taking place at Goodwood in West Sussex from 8–11 July, Maserati MC20 was put to the test on the 1.16 mile course.
The MC20 is the Trident brand’s first mid-engine two-seater super sports car. The model boasts a top speed of over 202 miles per hour (mph), and is the first Maserati with a carbon fibre monocoque, meaning the whole car weighs in at a feather-light 1500 kilograms. Paired with its powerful F1-derived engine, this combination ensures an exceptional power to weight ratio for impressive acceleration, achieving a speed of 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds.
Maserati’s performance saloon – the Ghibli Trofeo, in Nero Ribelle – took on the iconic hill climb as well, showcasing its 580hp V8 engine that can reach 62 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds.
The Maserati Nettuno engine was also on display at the Festival, alongside the MC20 in the Supercar Paddock.
Traditionally, Maserati have produced a succession of cars, each helping redefine what makes an Italian sports car in terms of design, performance, comfort, elegance and safety. Ambassadors of this heritage are the Quattroporte flagship, the Ghibli sports sedan, and the Levante, the first made by Maserati SUV.
Ghibli and Levante are now also available in hybrid version and are the Trident Brand’s first electrified cars. A complete range, including V6 and V8 petrol and 4 cylinder hybrid powerplants, with rear-wheel and four-wheel drive.
