Extreme weather testing for the Maserati MC20

Maserati MC20

Maserati has released footage of the upcoming MC20 unleashing its power on low-grip surfaces.

The supercar is currently engaged in a series of reliability tests (on road and track, in various driving conditions) and intensive cold-weather trials on the snow-covered roads of the Valtellina and at the Ghiacciodromo Livigno (Sondrio)- Italy’s most notable snow and ice circuit.

During its cold-weather mission, it was tested to evaluate engine cold starting, the low-temperature performance of its elastic components and its handling on cold and low-grip asphalt surfaces. The tests were also performed to verify correct functioning of the Climate Control System in cold conditions as well as tests conducted on the battery, suspensions and brakes.

The MC20 is powered by a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine that makes 621bhp and 538 lb-ft of torque and is capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in just 2.9 seconds and tops out at 202mph.
