Hear The Maserati MC20’s Engine Sound For The First Time

Say what you want against the Youtube star Blondie Supercar, but she got the first dibs on the Maserati MC20 – at least thanks to a video sent to her by Klaus Busse, Maserati’s head of design himself.

There is a lot to be said about the MC20. Besides being Modena’s first supercar in 15 years, the Nettuno 3.0-liter V6 behind the seats is home-made – although this was questioned somewhat in a previous report.

Then again, there is a lot for the Nettuno to do, like its use of the Formula 1 inspired addition of another combustion event to add power. With this, the MC20 produces approximately 621 horsepower (463 kilowatts) and 538 pound-feet (729 newton-meters), allowing a sprint of 2.9 seconds to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) and a top speed of 201 mph (323 km / h).

The MC20’s lightweight carbon fiber construction tips the scales at 3,306 pounds (1,500 kilograms). With that, the supercar boasts a better power-to-weight ratio of 2.3 kg (5.1 lb) per hp.

If you want to hear what the Nettuno V6 looks like, the video at the top of this page included a part where Busse started the MC20. He then let someone else spin the car for him while he records the exhaust note. It’s a big rumble, which can embody what the house’s first Maserati engine should look like.

The rest of the video gives us a quick look at Modena’s latest flagship, showing us what the $ 210,000 supercar looks like in metal and not just in press footage. Also, it will be next year before the MC20 hits the market, so it will be a wait.
