As you might know already, Maserati is working on a new supercar that was supposed to shed its camouflage this month. As we also know, the world came to an eerie halt and so is pretty much everything. However, Maserati continues to test its new baby and has dedicated a camouflaged prototype to Sir Stirling Moss, the British motor racing ace who died on 12 April at the age of 90.

The MC20 teaser is accompanied by the Eldorado, the iconic single-seater which made its debut in 1958 in Monza, driven by Moss himself. The prototype teaser also celebrates Moss’ victory in the Monaco F1 Grand Prix on 13 May 1956, at the wheel of the 250F. The list of Maserati cars driven by the British driver also includes the Tipo 60 Birdcage, Tipo 61 and 300 S.
The arrival of the MC20 is an important event for the Modena-based company, not only because of the racing comeback, but also because it will be the first car to adopt a new engine 100% designed, developed and produced by Maserati itself.
The MC20 is expected to pack an in-house developed motor, rumored to be a twin-turbo V6. The top-down shot reveals what appears to be an active rear spoiler.
As with any “camouflaged” prototype these days, we can still see the MC20’s curves and lines and that’s the whole idea to get the idea. Either way, a full reveal is expected in September 2020.
