MASERATI WORDS TONY WHITNEY PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF MASERATI
There are few more storied names in the history of performance cars than that of Maserati, so it’s especially good to see that for 2021, the Italian maker is bringing us an all-new super sports car – the MC20.
aserati made up for several delayed launches, understandable in 2020, to debut the MC20 with a spectacular web event every bit as impressive as a major auto salon effort, even though there was no audience present. The car proved to be well worth the trouble and expense. The MC20 certainly has a DNA that very few carmakers can get anywhere close to matching. The five founding Maserati brothers were involved with cars from the beginning of the 20th century and the company’s racing history dates back to 1926 and a win in the famed Targa Florio race. The company’s trident logo, highly respected in the sports car world, was based on one depicted on the Fountain of Neptune in Bologna.
