Maserati has unveiled its latest track creation at the 24 Hours of Spa — the Maserati GT2.
The car is a successor to the MC12 which which completely dominated the track from 2005 to 2010.
It features the same Nettuno V6 from the MC12 that develops 463kW of power at 7500 rpm and 730Nm of torque from 3000 to 5500 rpm, but Maserati reckons it’s found some more grunt.
That could indicate that it may be electrified where the rules permit.
Maserati says the track only GT2 has been designed and built for racing, dedicated to private teams and gentleman drivers.
It promises to be a masterpiece of performance that combines history, innovation and sporting attitude, features that have always characterised the Trident’s track and road cars.
Conceived and designed to take part in championships or individual events reserved for the GT2 class, the Maserati GT2 will debut on the track in the final stages of the 2023 Fanatec GT European Series, and is due to participate in the entire 2024 season.
Maserati CEO Davide Grasso said the brand’s DNA and spirit have always lain in racing.
“Our story began and developed from the track to the road,” he said.
“The decision to return to track racing forms part of a thorough strategic framework, inaugurated this year with the debut in Formula E, to which we have now added our return to the world of GT competitions.
“Now more than ever we want to rekindle and nourish that competitive passion that has always characterised and motivated us to achieve major milestones.”
The cutting edge GT2 is the result of a creative and design partnership between the Maserati Innovation Lab, the Centro Stile Maserati and the technological excellence of the Maserati dynamic simulator.
