Maserati has been at the pinnacle of motorsport from the moment it introduced its first race car to the world in 1926, the Grand Prix class-winning Tipo 26. Across the following decades it produced some of the most thoroughbred racing machines ever seen, and that tradition continues today.
This is the new MC20 GT2, designed since the early stages of development of the MC20 road-going supercar to put the Trident badge back in its natural environment – the racetrack. The MC20 GT2 will make its debut in the 2023 Fanatec GT2 European Series Championship, available to customers and teams.
The MC20 GT2 inherits the MC20’s best-in-class specifications, including the innovative 3.0-litre V6 Nettuno engine with new Maserati Twin Combustion (MTC) technology, double-wishbone suspension with semi-virtual steering axis, and carbon fibre monocoque. An aggressive aero package and extensive weight-reduction techniques ensure it is ready to take on some of the world’s most iconic circuits.
Maserati’s history in GT racing is a proud one; the MC20 GT2 picks up the baton for the MC12 GT1 which secured numerous victories in the FIA GT Championships from 2004 to 2010, including Manufacturers Cup wins as well as Teams’ Championship wins. To celebrate the link, Maserati is ushering in the new Maserati Corse era – which also includes its entry to Formula E with the Gen3 in 2023 – with an experience dedicated to the glorious milestones in its sporting history at the 24 Hours of Spa, a circuit conquered by the MC12 with victories in 2005, 2006 and 2008.
In the words of Davide Grasso, Maserati CEO: “We are driven by our passion, both on the road and on the track. We have a long history of world excellence in motorsport and we are extremely proud to race with the extraordinary MC20. Racing has always been Maserati’s natural habitat and now, both in the Fanatec GT2 European Series Championship and in the Formula E Championship, this brand is making a new start from its roots to build the future”.
