There might only be roughly 12 miles between Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello and Maserati in Modena but production at these two Italian supercar companies has been at polar opposites in the last decade. Ferrari continues to keep its shareholders extremely happy by slicing its regular models this way and that - and Ferrari also developed its first mainstream hybrid in the SF90. It has become hard to keep up with this so-called niche brand, and yet the internal burgeoning doesn’t appear to be diluting the brand’s core appeal. Then there’s Maserati who despite riding on the immense brand heritage, has failed to produce anything game-changing in the last decade or two. Like many others, they poured efforts into an SUV with the Levante but nothing about it feels all that new. But you can’t write Maserati off, no matter how hard you try. As for Ferrari, their finger never leaves the pulse. Meet the latest Italian supercars, the Maserati MC20 and the Ferrari Roma.
Maserati has been teasing something like this for a long time and admittedly the headline numbers instantly pop out at you. A 0-60mph time in under 3 seconds and a top speed over 186mph. However, despite the more laser-focused supercar angle than anything in recent times, the MC20 isn’t going to live on a track either. On the other hand, the Ferrari Roma can be described as a GT with styling that has been downplayed for buyers who demand more discretion from their supercar. Even so, some of the styling elements on the Roma will be the base layer for future models, so it’s packing influence around Maranello’s car park.
