The Maserati MC20 GT2 gets power from a derivative of the Italian car brand's new 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine. The automaker is yet to reveal any power output specification. Maserati claims that a base version with 630 hp peak power is currently under development. It gets a wide range of accessories in an attempt to become worthy for the GT2 circuit. It gets a six-point racing safety belt, carbon fibre steering wheel, in-car camera, air conditioning, tyre pressure monitoring system and adjustable racing ABS.

It also comes with a six-speed sequential racing transmission with paddle shifters, which sends power to the rear wheels. Other elements include a racing clutch and a limited-slip self-locking mechanical differential to help the car with traction, while a GT2-homologated racing body kit is there ensuring maximum aerodynamic downforce. Maserati claims that further changes to the equipment are possible during the vehicle development.

Maserati aims to replicate the success of the MC12 with the new MC20 GT2. The car brand won the race in Belgium three times in 2005, 2006, and 2008 with MC12.

Speaking about the MC20 GT and the brand's return to motorsports, Maserati CEO Davide Grasso said that the company and its new project is driven by its passion, both on the road and on the track. “We have a long history of world excellence in motorsport and we are extremely proud to race with the extraordinary MC20. Racing has always been Maserati's natural habitat and now, both in the Fanatec GT2 European Series Championship and in the Formula E Championship, this brand is making a new start from its roots to build the future," he further stated.
