  • Where did the Maserati GT2 make its track debut?

    The Maserati GT2 made its track debut at the Autodromo Varano de’ Melegari in Parma, Italy.
  • How much power does the Maserati GT2 make?

    The Maserati GT2 makes 621 horsepower thanks to its Nettuno V6 engine mated to a six-speed sequential racing gearbox.

    “The first few days are always quite unique, even more so for me when I was fortunate enough to bring Maserati to success at the GT1 World Championships, where I won four titles. We are now about to get back on track with yet another wonderful car. We’ve done lots of trial runs and early feedback is positive. Getting back behind the wheel of a GT was really exciting, and I could see everyone involved was very enthusiastic and motivated. We've focused on developing a product that not only stands up to its competitors but is also an ideal car for our gentleman drivers in terms of handling, comfort, and performance,” said Maserati Test Driver Andrea Bertolini.

    Powering the Maserati GT2 is the Nettuno V6 engine from the MC20 with the all-new patented MTC (Maserati Twin Combustion) technology, based on F1 engines. The 621-horsepower mill is accompanied by an ultra-light carbon fiber central monocoque, a body made with lightweight composite material, and aerodynamic appointments that help push the GT2 to the next level.

    Other notable features of the Maserati GT2 include full-electric power steering, adjustable shock absorbers, and adjustable anti-roll bars. Further, the six-speed sequential racing gearbox, the 10-inch display on the dashboard, and the steering wheel with paddle shifters and electrical rotary gearshift actuator evoke adrenaline-fuelled emotions.

    The Trident brand’s experience in motorsports spans almost a century. Its passion for racing is being rekindled by its link with that potent legacy and its drive toward the future, in which racing is an essential component.

    “We want them to experience a unique feeling in this car. In the last few months, we’ve been working intensively in the simulator, courtesy of the commitment of a fantastic team. I’d like to thank them, and the most positive aspect is that to follow these first few days, we’re making it all a reality is to the very greatest extent. We have an intense series of test days ahead of us, to get us ready to get back on track,” Bertolini added.
