The new Maserati super sports car 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, the super sports car was tested to evaluate cold engine starting, the low-temperature performance of its elastic components and the car's handling on cold and low-grip asphalt surfaces. The test is also performed to verify the Climate Control System's correct functioning in cold conditions, including tests on the battery, suspensions, and brakes.
The extreme conditions have not stopped the new MC20. In fact, they have enhanced this car's opposing personalities, born from the brand's racing DNA but designed for series production.
The Maserati MC20 is scheduled to arrive in South Africa later in 2021.
