In our last thread, we showed you how Maserati decided to announce the name for its all-new sports car.

There was just one problem with that story. Details were lacking.

Thanks to the team at CAR magazine though, we've got some juicy information concerning the all-new MC20. It's all starting to come together, honestly.
