Maserati, the esteemed Italian automaker, has officially introduced its new MC20 GT2, designed exclusively for racing circuits. This highly-anticipated model is poised to debut at the end of the current season in championships governed by the GT2 regulations.

In a grand unveiling at the 24-hour race at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, Maserati showcased the MC20 GT2, the racing variant of the Italian supercar. Built under the international GT2 regulations, this racing beauty borrows several components from its road-going MC20 counterpart.

Notably, the heart of this racer is the Nettuno V6 3.0-liter bi-turbo engine, churning out a robust 630 horsepower and 730 Nm of torque. This engine specification remains consistent with the road model. However, shifting gears, instead of the 8-speed automatic transmission found in the standard MC20, the GT2 version features a 6-speed sequential gearbox.

Race enhancements don’t stop there. The MC20 GT2 has been endowed with a limited-slip differential, a bi-directional adjustable suspension, new exhaust system, and 18-inch wheels shod in slick tires. Aerodynamic improvements are evident: a revamped aerodynamic package includes a front spoiler, curved aerodynamic features, an air-intake-rich hood, and a prominent rear wing. And, in a nod to the luxury inherent to the brand, the MC20 GT2 even boasts air conditioning, a rarity in race cars.

Race enthusiasts should mark their calendars as the Maserati MC20 GT2 is scheduled to storm the tracks by the close of the 2023 season.
