Mansory is the latest tuner to get hold of the Maserati MC20. The work on this car includes a forged carbon fibre body kit, a re-upholstered interior, and a power upgrade.
By Mansory standards, this MC20's modified exterior is almost understated. The pieces include a front fascia with larger inlets, a bonnet with vented sections, matching wings/fenders, an engine cover with a scoop over the roof, much broader rear quarters, a tall wing, and a massive diffuser. The exhaust outlets are higher on the tail, and there are four, circular pipes coming out the back.

The body colour is a mix of exposed forged carbon fibre, satin-finish dark grey, and yellow stripes. The 10-spoke wheels seem to have a very dark bronze colour.
The interior is vibrant by mostly using the yellow colour from the body stripes for the upholstery. The seats have white sections and an Italian flag-coloured strip down the centre. There are also some black touches.
Mansory gives the MC20 a healthy power bump to 720 bhp (537 kilowatts) and 627 pound-feet (850 Newton-metres) of torque. For comparison, the stock twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 Nettuno engine has 621 bhp (463 kW) and 538 lb-ft (729 Nm). The standard powerplant gets the sports car to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometres per hour) in 2.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 201 mph (323 kph).
Mansory isn't the only tuner trying to extract more power from the MC20's V6. Novitec can take the output to 701 bhp (523 kW) and 603 lb-ft (818 Nm). DMC pushes the powerplant to 705 bhp (525 kW) and 646 lb-ft (875 Nm) of torque.
Maserati is working on a hotter MC20 called the Project24, but it's a track-only machine. The tuned V6 pumps out 740 bhp (552 kW). The company isn't disclosing the torque figure yet. Where the road-legal car uses an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the circuit-exclusive version has a six-speed manual. Inside, there's a fire extinguisher and a roll cage.
