Maserati proved that it can build supercars splendidly on its own with the MC20. It’s powerful enough to compete other supercars and is beautiful enough to turn heads not just on the roads but also on car shows.
The reception for the Maserati MC20 was so great that just had to introduce a roadster version called the MC20 Cielo.
Perhaps not yet finished with the MC20, Maserati is creating another version that it is solely tuning for the tracks.
Thus, the brand is unveiling a new offing designed to catapult its performance to a new level of adrenaline on the track – the new Maserati Project24.
The Project24 Supercar Is More Powerful Than The Maserati MC20
Since this MC20-based track-only supercar is a project, Maserati is referring to it as the Project24.
It builds on the specifications of the MC20 supercar, and then improves on them through the installation of various elements that should make the Project24 all suitable for track-only racing.
Nevertheless, the Project24 looks completely different from the MC20 road-going supercar.
For instance, its 3.0-liter Nettuno V6 90-degree twin turbo engine comes with new turbochargers for enhanced output from 621 hp to 740 hp.
Featuring the Maserati Twin Combustion (MTC) Twin Spark with TJI double combustion control, this engine sends power to the wheels via a six-speed sequential racing gearbox with paddle shifters, with help from a racing clutch and limited-slip self-locking mechanical differential.
Featuring an ultra-light carbon fiber central monocoque as well as all-new carbon-fiber bodywork with specific components in natural fibers, the Project24 offers high-performance aerodynamics that include multi-adjustable front & rear wing.
Its suspension system includes a double-wishbone setup with semi-virtual steering axis, adjustable racing dampers, and adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars.
Project24 Is Compliant With FIA Race Safety Requirements
As a track-only supercar, the Project24 complies with FIA race safety requirements.
For instance, it comes with FIA-homologated FT3 120 L fuel tank, FIA-spec fire extinguisher, and a FIA-homologated safety roll cage.
It rides on bespoke forged 18” aluminum rims shod with slick tires, with stopping power coming from Brembo CCMR ventilated racing brakes.
Its interior elements include racing seats, adjustable racing pedal box, adjustable steering column, 6-point racing safety belt, multi-functional carbon-fiber steering wheel (with built-in display), dash and data acquisition system, air conditioning, as well as adjustable racing ABS and traction control.
Optional elements include a rearview camera display, telemetry recording, in-car camera for video recording, driving performance optimization display, and tire pressure monitoring system.
