MC20 is the upcoming vehicle by Maserati. This is an innovative sports car and uses the latest technological advancement, such as the Bilstein DampTronic X suspension system. The company has been working on a brand new strategy in order to introduce a flagship supercar. In this article, we are going to find out why you should be excited about this new release.
The vehicle comes with a 90 degree V6 3-litre turbocharged engine. The prism between the spark ignition systems allows the vehicle to produce power of 621 HP. Consequently, the vehicle enjoys a power to weight ratio of 2.33 kg/hp.
The chasers are made from carbon fibre monocoque, which is ultra-lightweight. Using the most recent composite material and different building techniques, this vehicle weighs only 1500 kg.. Besides, the suspension system is state of the art.
The dynamic shock absorbers are independent and compact. It was made specifically for this vehicle. Apart from this, it has been tested on different types of tracks including the wet roads.
The DampTronic X technology adjusts the damping forces in a couple of milliseconds. The idea is to meet the requirements set by the central control unit. Then there are some sensors that perform the monitoring of oscillations and vibrations. Also, the EDC unit adapts the damping force of the wheels to offer the ideal state of performance and comfort. Based on the driving mode, the system can change the characteristics of the suspension.
Apart from this, there is the default mode, which is designed for regular driving. Apart from this, it soften the suspension in order to offer the maximum comfort level. Besides, it also makes the sound of the engine civilized enough at low revolutions. The active exhaust is opened around 5000 RPM.
The other mode allows better maneuverability on difficult surfaces, such as damp and wet roads. It helps achieve this purpose by reducing the damping force of the shocks and putting a limit to the engine boast.
If you choose the sports mode, you will enjoy the maximum performance from the vehicle. However, the suspension will become stiffer so that the vehicle remains stable at high speeds. You can override the suspension settings and make changes to the damping forces.
Apart from this, new technology increases the ground clearance of the vehicle by up to 1.9 inches to protect the underside of the vehicle from steep ramps and speed bumps. This suspension system is dynamic, which is why it offers extreme performance and maximum comfort at the same time based on the driving conditions.
