With the GT2, a modified version of the MC20 supercar, Maserati returns to grand tourer competition.
Behind the race driver is the same twin-turbocharged V-6 as the street-legal vehicle, but it will likely produce more than 621 horsepower.
The GT2-specification MC20 has adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars in addition to a massive rear wing and copious amounts of carbon fibre.

Maserati will enter the GT2 European Series with a version of its MC20 supercar that is track-ready. The manufacturer published the first photographs of the GT2 race vehicle today; a formal unveiling will occur in June at the 24 Hours of Spa.

GT2 automobiles include the Mercedes-AMG GT, KTM X-Bow, and Brabham BT63, among other homologated models.





The GT2-specification MC20 will share its twin-turbocharged V-6 engine with the road-going model. The engine produces 621 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque in the production MC20, but Maserati claims the race car brings it “to a greater level.”

Maserati also promotes the carbon-fiber central monocoque and lightweight, full-composite bodywork, which is equipped with quick-release panels in case they need to be replaced during the race.





For GT2 competition, the MC20’s suspension has been updated with front and rear adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars. The GT2 is equipped with electric power steering and a paddle-shift sequential six-speed transmission, while the extreme aerodynamic kit features front bumper dive planes and a massive rear wing. Internally, the carbon-fiber dashboard has a 10-inch display, but other than that, the interior is very barren.

The MC20-based GT2 continues Maserati’s return to motorsports, which began this year with the brand’s participation into Formula E. In the first five rounds, the Maserati Formula E team has earned three points and suffered four retirements.
