PARIS, Jan. 30, 2021 /— At the online awards ceremony for the Festival Automobile International, Maserati took pride of place amongst the winners. The recently launched MC20, which premiered globally last September at the MMXX international show in Modena, received the “most beautiful supercar of the year 2021” award.

Klaus Busse, Maserati Head of Design, said, “We are honored to receive this coveted accolade, which recognizes the work of an entire team who have made a wholehearted commitment to this unique project, creating a car that opens a new chapter in Maserati’s history.”

Maserati said its MC20 is a mix of elegance, sporting prowess, personality, and a genuine masterpiece of style, which inaugurated a new era for the Trident Brand. Designed at the Centro Stile Maserati in Turin, the MC20 marks Maserati’s return to the super sports car segment with a car that combines mind-blowing performance and ground-breaking technology.

The company elaborated that MC20 is a model that identifies itself by its uniquely Italian character. “A tasteful, pure concept, without stylistic excesses: the timeless design that has always been the signature of Maserati cars of all eras. Its lines’ innate class and purity highlight a personality of sheer sporting brilliance: the vehicle’s upper part is a sculpted artwork. At the same time, its lower section is a concentrate of pure technology. The MC20’s design achieves a perfect balance between opposites. The ideal mix between craftsmanship and engineering combines hand artistry’s unique quality and the most advanced production processes’ absolute precision. Developed by the Maserati Innovation Lab and produced at the historic plant in Modena, MC20 is 100% made in Italy,” Maserati added.

According to Maserati, the new super sports car’s most distinctive feature is its exclusive butterfly doors, which are aesthetically stunning and provide the driver and passengers with easier access, both inside and outside the cabin. This supercar is the first Maserati to have vertical headlights: a real revolution in the brand’s design criteria. The broad, low, horizontal rear light clusters are equally distinctive.

MC20’s superb looks conceal an uncompromisingly sporty soul, with the new 630hp V6 Nettuno engine that delivers 0-100 km/h acceleration in under 2.9 seconds and a top speed over 325 km/h — an engine 100% patented, conceived, designed, and built entirely by Maserati.
