First, we had the MC20 in late 2020, followed by the MC20 Cielo in mid-2022 and the MC20 GT2 earlier this year. Now, it’s time for the MCXtrema to join the lineup. It’s a track-day special and is limited to 62 units. Where did that number come from? Well, there’s no explanation and I’m not sure either.
The Maserati MCXtrema indeed looks like an extreme version of the Mc20. Being a track-day special, it ain’t got headlights, but there are LED running lights at the front and more than sufficient intakes and outlets. From the top view, you can notice that there are a lot of exposed carbon fibre bits, including the roof air intake and that gigantic rear wing. The intake and the wing are connected by a fin which appears to be highlighted with a red light signature. The rear fascia features more than sufficient lights, but I guess you gotta do justice to the name by going extreme with as many elements as possible.
Maserati didn’t bother sharing many details, but according to reports, the MCXtrema features adjustable dampers and adjustable anti-roll bars. The pedals and the steering column are also adjustable. The cockpit complies with FIA safety standards, of course, with features including a full roll cage, a fire extinguisher, and an emergency exit outlet on the roof.
Powering the MCXtrema is a 3.0L V6 Nettuno engine, but there are larger turbos—which in conjunction with other modifications—deliver 544 kW or 740 metric hp. Target dry weight is reported to be 1,250 kg (2,756 lbs).
