With winter still very much underway in various parts of Europe, Maserati has seized the opportunity to take its latest MC20 supercoupe out for a spin in the snow, visiting Ghiacciodromo Livigno, a specialized ice driving school in Italy.
“During its cold-weather mission, the super sports car was tested to evaluate engine cold starting, the low-temperature performance of its elastic components and the car’s handling on cold and low-grip asphalt surfaces,” wrote the automaker in a statement. “The test is also performed to verify correct functioning of the Climate Control System in cold conditions; tests were also conducted on the battery, suspensions and brakes.”
Unveiled back in September last year, the MC20 is a supercoupe packing 621 horsepower thanks to an in-house, twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 Nettuno engine. Pushing 210 horsepower per liter, the V6 is one of the most power-dense engines in the world and can propel the car from 0-62mph in just 2.9 seconds, reaching top speeds of 202 mph.
Elsewhere in the automotive world, GM’s new Hummer EV has also joined in on the sub-zero fun.
