That low down exhaust sounds so bad, why does everything have to sound like a tractor now

So, Maserati and Ferrari are no longer part of the same group.

Ferrari is its own thing now yes, but 90% of it is owned by Fiat Chrysler Group shareholders, so it essentially is still a FCA brand, just not officially

I think Maserati appreciates the opportunity to shape its own strategy, with fewer constraints from Ferrari.

Maserati will surely fine-tune it into a great sounding exhaust note

But given the COVID-19 situation, it seems unlikely that the planned schedule with a presentation of the MC20 at the end of May will hold. All car production in Italy was suspended last week, and other activities, including testing, are probably down to a trickle.

A hommage to Moss and pointing to the future

https://www.topgear.com.ph/news/car-...a2613-20200517

New photos provide a good idea of how the car will look like, apart from the details that will surely set it apart as a true Maserati.

... But, I am shocked by the lack of knowledge displayed by someone who writes for TopGear: "This will also be the first Maserati powered by an engine developed entirely in-house". C'mon, we are dealing with a marque with more than 100 years of history, and which throughout its history has designed and manufactured almost every conceivable type and configuration of engines; from straight 4, 6, and 8, V6, V8 and V12, to even V16 (double-8). Not many manufacturers are even close to that diversity, and basically all of them were fully in-house designs, apart from the - historically speaking - rather recent teaming-up with other marques in the FCA conglomerate.

I'm hoping that's PR speak from Maserati and their disconnect from the marque. Otherwise, yeah, someone needs to be booted from Top Gear post haste.

Maserati cut ties with ferrari and it's unlikely FCA would green light a dpi program for alfa romeo or maserati.
An MC20 GT3 is extremely unlikely as well. Shame.

Hope it turns up as a GT3 or GT4 car somehow. It was bad enough that the Alfa 8C GT3 project never came to fruition.

it's hard to find pics of a car that doesn't exist...

but anyway, there is an assetto corsa mod for the 8C gt3

recall back in 2013 there were rumors about a 4C GT4 made by a third party tuner, but nothing happened for real actually.
