Focus on a supercar that makes its headlines by the power of its own individual value. Likewise, by reason of its importance as to the next future of Maserati and FCA. MC20 wears leather: in fact, the interiors of the latest masterwork, made by the car manufacturer from Modena, include not only alcantara and carbon fibre, but also “valuable leather” as a tribute to such precious animal material.
Besides that, MC20 embodies the first accomplishment following an investment plan carried out by FCA and focused on Maserati. While presenting this supercar, they confirmed the merger with PSA, which is going to take place as per schedule.

MC20 required a 24-month-long development process. Investments in its design provided the opportunity to revamp the manufacturing plant based in Modena, alongside the relaunch of the one located in Cassino. On top of that, this supercar also leads the way into electricity supply, which is part of Maserati’s industrial plan together with the presentation of 20 models, 13 of which never seen before, in the next 5 years.
FCA have invested 2.5 billion euros in the brand: such investment proves “a considerable amount, mostly included in 5 billion euros formerly allocated by FCA to enhance our own industrial facilities based in the country – pointed out Mike Manley, Chief Executive Officer of FCA, while speaking to Il Sole 24 Ore –. I am confident this is going to be for Maserati the last year at a loss”.
Investments and merger
“Maserati is one of our jewels – continued Manley –. Indeed, it is really a luxury brand and turns out to be an outstanding asset: if we financially support and lead it properly, it will enjoy a well-deserved success, after 18 months of hard work carried out to revamp it”. While talking about Maserati, we must also mention a forthcoming merger with Groupe PSA, which will give birth to Stellantis holding. Considering, perhaps, the recently occurred dramatic turn of events in the LVMH-Tiffany deal, fallen through while waiting for the closing, FCA Chief Executive Officer is in a hurry to close the deal within next March: “The process – he wrapped up – is going on smoothly”.
