The MC20 is a very important car for Maserati. Never mind being its first all-new exotic car since the original Gran Turismo debuted in 2007, it’s the marque’s first supercar since the ultra-rare MC12. Unlike the MC12 however, there will be more than 50 MC20s. Many, many more. Maserati may have found a number of willing takers for its new supercar at the 2021 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, where the car is made multiple impressive runs up the Hill.

Gallery: MC20 returns Maserati to the supercar club
On a slightly grey Saturday at Goodwood, the MC20 looked luminous in ‘Blu Infinito’. With a brand new ultra-clever 639PS (470kW) twin-turbo ‘Nettuno’ V6 engine mated to its carbon tub chassis, needless to say it was convincingly rapid too. Though a similar-sounding recipe to the McLaren Artura, it goes without the hybrid boost. Fear not EV enthusiasts and the eco-conscious, there is an all-electric variant of the MC20 waiting in the wings. Which would you spend £180,000-plus on, the Maserati MC20, or the McLaren Artura?
