According to Maserati press release, this coming MC20 prototype will borrow its design elements from the old Maserati Eldorado model which Sir Stirling Moss at Monza during the vehicle’s 1958 debut. This shows how much illustrious history Maserati shares with the British race car driver especially back in the days when he drove the 300 S, Tipo 61, and Tipo 60 Birdcage.

Rumours are going around that this new Maserati MC20 will come with a twin-turbocharged V6 engine that could output over 600hp. Some online sources also claim that the engine will be mated with an 8-speed dual-clutch auto transmission system. However, the Italian automaker is yet to confirm any of these rumors or give out information regarding the specs of this upcoming supercar. The only thing we can guess for now is that; the MC20 would carry a decent price tag which might not land it among the Top 10 most expensive cars in the world like rumors are speculating.

But in any case, we are sure it will forever remain a unique supercar model because it pays homage to a racing legend.
