Maserati has unveiled its new limited series super sports car. It is called Project24 and only 62 units will ever be built which makes it extremely rare. What makes it even more unique is that it is specifically developed for track use and is not homologated for road use. So, there won't be any Project24 on regular roads.

The Project24 is based on the MC20 but Maserati has upgraded several components. The engine is the same 3.0-litre V6 but now gets upgraded twin-turbochargers. This has helped in increasing the power output from 630 hp to 740 hp. The 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox has been ditched and replaced with a 6-speed sequential racing gearbox with paddle shifters that still drives the rear wheels only. Maserati is using a dry sump setup with a racing clutch and limited-slip self-locking mechanical differential. The dry weight of the Project24 is less than 1,240 kgs.

The Project24 is based on MC20 which is the latest offering from the manufacturer.
