What is Maserati up to?

So Maserati are producing a successor to the MC12 called the MC20 to be launched shortly - the interesting thing is the statement on the article attached:

Quote:
Maserati has confirmed that the new MC20 will also go racing.

No clue as to where and what category - any thoughts?
Would love it to be Hypercar!

I would think GT2 is more likely than a single make car for the halo car of their lineup. Single make would be the GT car. But depending on the base car they use it could be tough to find a class for it outside of GT2. Guessing they would use bits from the parts bin rather than a new chassis from the ground up unless Alfa needs a new 6C to slot between the previous models

No reason to expect that the Maserati MC20 will be an AR 4C clone. More likely to be a sportscar suited for the GT3 class.

If Car magazine is roughly right (https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/spy-sh...supersportiva/), the new model will not be anything close to a hypercar, or a direct successor to the MC12, which was a much more exclusive and expensive car.

Still, great that Maserati commits to racing again. The Gran Turismo has performed rather well in the GT4 class over the last decade, but has now bowed out gracefully, and a new GT2/GT3 racer would be really great.

Maserati is now testing the proper full prototype, rather than a development mule, and the released photos indicate a GT2/GT3 type of car:

A GT2 would fit the Ferrari group scheme.

Nice statue. I believe it is pointing out that Maserati is number one.

Interesting looking muletta!

Got the MC12 'face' with a look a bit like any o 488/R8/C8 from the cockpit to the rear.

Exhaust note suggests V6 turbo?
