MODENA: Maserati has unveiled Nettuno, a futuristic engine produced by Maserati’s team of technicians and engineers. The new engine is the beating heart of the MC20 super sportscar that will make its world premiere in September. The MC20 will take Maserati back to the world of racing.
The new power unit is a V90° architecture, with a 3-litre, 6-cylinder twin-turbo, and features a dry sump (a classic solution on super sportscars). It delivers 630 PS/463 kW at 7500rpm and 730 Nm of torque from 3000rpm with a specific power output of 210 PS/litre.
The compression ratio is 11:1, the stroke is 82 mm and the bore 88 mm.
The unit has been designed at Maserati’s Modena facilities: the Maserati Innovation Lab on Via Emilia Ovest, the workshops on Via Delle Nazioni (Maserati Corse’s historic base) and developed at the Engine Hub, situated at the famous Viale Ciro Menotti address where it will be built. Currently the new production line and new paint shop are being modified to host the much-anticipated MC20.
The soul of the engine is the innovative pre-chamber combustion system featuring twin-spark plugs. This technology is derived from Formula 1 and is now available, for the first time, on an engine destined for the road.
