      A nice, clean and understated design.

      The Lotus is a bit more striking, but this is a heck of a lot cheaper.
      Why you wouldn’t (buy an Optima SX):

      Because you have your eyes on the Frigidaire Limited Edition Camry that you saw last weekend at the neighborhood Autoplex

      If they called it a Merak (due to the V6) or Bora (if it had a V8) it would 'feel' like a Maserati.

      Looks like a modern take on those '70s cars.

      The Maserati MC20 starts at $210,000 in the US. Expect the super sports car to hit the market next year.

      looks stunning minus the automatic. I'm really loving the simplicity of some of these new supercar designs.

      Alfa's Quadrofoglio is also a V6TT and it sounds great.

      Any car which holds together for a whole race is too heavy.

      If you speak Italian, this video has some details about the 800v system in the EV version:

      Electric Maserati MC20 To Feature Three Electric Motors And More Than 621 HP

      When Maserati unveiled the MC20 earlier this week, the company confirmed plans for an electric variant. However, they didn’t say much about the upcoming model.

      That’s changing today as Autoblog is reporting Maserati’s upcoming range of electric vehicles will be dubbed Folgore which is Italian for “thunder.”

      The publication says the Folgore variants will have an 800-volt powertrain which powers three electric motors. Two motors will power the rear wheels, while a third will turn the front wheels.

      There’s no word on specifications at this point, but the MC20 Folgore will “absolutely be more powerful” than the standard model which has a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 621 hp (463 kW / 630 PS) and 538 lb-ft (730 Nm) of torque. It enables the car to run from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than 2.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed in excess of 202 mph (325 km/h).

      Furthermore, the MC20 Folgore is slated to have a 300 kW fast-charging capability and a lithium-ion battery pack that is mounted behind the firewall for “weight distribution reasons.”

      While the MC20 Folgore will be the company’s electric halo car, it won’t be their first EV. That honor will go to upcoming GranTurismo as the MC20 Folgore will debut sometime after the MC20 Convertible as a 2023 model.

      That’s a ways off, but it appears the MC20 Folgore will feature unique styling to improve aerodynamics and help distance it from the standard model. As Maserati’s head of design, Klaus Busse, explained “We are trying to avoid unnecessary air openings and air outlets, in contrast to some of our competitors that seem to depend on them to convey a message.”

      Maserati MC20 Priced From AU$438,000 Down Under, 2021 Allocation Already Sold Out

      The 2021 Maserati MC20 has just been announced for both the Australian and New Zealand markets.

      Those in Australia looking to pick up the keys to a new MC20 will need to part ways with at least AU$438,000 (US$310,629), while those in New Zealand can purchase one from NZ$390,000 (US$257,361). While both prices are pretty steep, Maserati Australia and New Zealand says its allocation of 2021 models has already been sold out, without however specifying just how many units that is.

      “The all-new MC20 marks Maserati’s launch into a new era,” chief operating officer of Maserati Australia and New Zealand, Glen Sealey, said in a statement. “Elegant and sporty, efficient and lightweight – it’s a stunning supercar and clear statement of intent. We’re delighted to welcome the MC20 to Australia.”

      A price of AU$438,000 in Australia puts the MC20 right up there with some of the market’s leading mid-engined supercars. For example, the Lamborghini Huracan Evo starts at AU$459,441 (US$325,566) while the Ferrari F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S are available from AU$484,888 (US$343,598) and AU$489,000 (US$346,512) respectively.

      Powering the Maserati MC20 is a bespoke twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter V6 that has a dual injection system and an F1-inspired pre-chamber combustion chamber system with twin-spark plugs. All up, it delivers 621 hp and 538 lb-ft (730 Nm) of torque, meaning it has 9 hp less than the Huracan Evo but a significant torque advantage of 95 lb-ft (129 Nm).

      Mated to the engine is an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission sending power to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential. The MC20 can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 2.9 seconds and its top speed exceeds 205 mph (325 km/h).

      And that’s only a rare genus of supercar-buying ultra capitalists... the Billionairus californica.

      A guy over at Ferrari chat has supposedly ordered one and it's costing him almost $300K.

      The MC20 is a nice looking car, but I don't see getting one when you could get a new Acura NSX and and an Audi R8 RWD for the same money.

      Money ain’t a thing to most supercar buyers.

      I think that's a Giulia QV steering wheel. If the MC20 has any of the driving magic of recent Alfas, this could be one of the best new supercars. I'm particularly excited about the electric version.

      Surprised nobody has mentioned this, but if you got this in red you could call it a Dino. V6 Ferrari for all intents and purposes IMHO. Want.

      The depreciation on these is going to be nothing short of breathtaking.

      Will make Maccas look like GT Porsches

      Buying inferior product under the auspice of "doing something different" is just too tempting for some

      For $300K a Ferrari F8 Tributo with a twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 that produces 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque sounds like a bargain to me. Looks better too.

      You can’t take advantage of “record low” gas prices when you have nowhere to drive. And it’s not really more affordable if you don’t have a paycheck to buy it with.
