If this is what the MC 20 would sound like, I am a little disappointed, but I guess the Maserati engineers are not magicians... It is probable impossible to make a V6 turbo sounds as good as a NA V8.


Does not sound like a Maserati if you ask me...

A bit farty, but not terrible. But understandably not a Stradale.

The GT is such a tough act to follow, you would think they would have put more effort in crafting something more symphonic.

I think it's hard to do with two less cylinders, cats, turbos and a shorter exhaust.

V8 don't sound as good as a V12, (especially a Merlin!) but they 'get away with it'.


*actually prefer the sound of the Griffon.

Sounds a bit like the alfa quadrifoglio to me. All cars will be like this now as mentioned because of the cats, turbos and DPF (whatever the petrol equivalent is), it's sad. Suspect there will be a lot of people ripping all of that stuff out using aftermarket kit which should open it up a bit!

Indeed, as I mentioned on the other thread, it has a Corsa mode which opens the valves and I doubt this it

Regardless of the sound though, the car itself looks great and I'm super excited to try one next year when they're here
Definitely agreed on the look department, looks very nice, I like the rear end especially. Hopefully it sounds close to a Stradale...

You can download the "MC20 ring tone" from the website. It's not bad at all.
You get engine startup, revved and then through the gears. Gear changes sound phenomenal.
