The Art of Fast tour will see the MC20 stop at 15 locations in the United States.
It's not every day that you'd pass a Maserati on your way to the office, but the chances of that happening over the next month or two are a bit higher. Following the launch of the all-new Maserati MC20 supercar, along with high-performance Trofeo versions of the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans, the Italian marque is embarking on what it has called "The Art of Fast" tour across North America.
Prototypes of these hot new Maseratis will visit various US dealers following stops in Montreal and Toronto, with 15 total stops in North America in October and November.
The tour will begin in New England and the New York tristate, with further stops planned along the east coast, in Florida, across the south, and concluding in California next month. Maserati encouraged fans to contact local dealerships to find out if the tour will stop by in their area.
It's worth it if only to see the epic new mid-engined MC20, with its Nettuno engine being the first that Maserati produced itself in over two decades. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 generates 621 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque and is capable of powering the MC20 to 60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds. It helps, of course, that the MC20 is a gorgeous thing to look at.
Joining the supercar on the tour are Trofeo versions of the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans, following the reveal of the Levante Trofeo SUV. Both are equipped with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 with 580 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque (the same torque figure as the MC20). The sedans can reach a top speed of 203 mph. They can be spotted by their grilles with twin vertical black bars in Piano Black, carbon fiber trim, 21-inch wheels, and red accents applied to the Trident badge on the C-pillars.
Maserati promises that the Trofeo collection models will begin arriving in the US next month, while production of the hardcore MC20 starts at the end of this year, with deliveries set to get underway in the fall of 2021.
