Ladies and gents, we have a name. On Thursday, Maserati shared what it will call its "super sports car" long in the making, and that name is MC20.
Diehard fans will quickly realize the connection. "MC" stands for "Maserati Corse," or "Maserati Racing" in English. The number 20 signifies this year, 2020, as the dawn of a new era for the Italian marque. It also harkens back to the victorious Maserati MC12, which shared a chassis with the legendary Ferrari Enzo. The MC12, at the time, marked Maserati's return to racing -- just as the MC20 will for the company now.
Indeed, the company will take the MC20 racing, though it didn't share where it will stake a campaign just yet.

We also know there will be a totallyof the MC20, though other powertrains are in the cards. Originally, this sports car was set to become Maserati's first EV, but instead, that .
The design remains a mystery, however, with only a couple ofreleased that show a very prototype-looking thing. It's hard to even pick out a production design line right now. Though, if there's one thing Maserati does right, it's build some lovely looking cars.
Production will take place at the firm's facility in Modena, Italy, but we won't need to wait until assembly starts. Maserati said we'll finally see its latest creation at the end of May during an event in the same city.
