German tuning company Novitec has revealed its latest creation – a faster and sportier-looking take on the Maserati MC20.
The company specializes in tuning Italian supercars, so seeing its take on the mid-engined Maserati is no surprise.
Its upgrades are plentiful, with the changes headlined by an exhaust system lined with 999-grade fine gold. That’s right, it’s lined with pure gold.

The standard MC20 is no slouch, with a 0-100km/h (0-62mph) time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200mph.
But Novitec made it quicker still, thanks to the addition of new modules for the engine control system, upgraded boost pressure control, and of course the high-flow exhaust.
The twin-turbo V8 is now delivering 711hp (523kW), getting it to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds.
As ever, Novitec has also given the car a plethora of cosmetic upgrades such as the larger wheels measuring 20-inch up front and 21-inch rear.
There’s also a new front splitter at the front and a new spoiler at the back, in addition to a much larger diffuser.
And every component is made of carbon fiber and hasn’t been painted over so it’s all on show.

The same also applies to the new side skirts.
Plus, the interior can be customized on demand with just about any color combo you can think of, using a mix of Alcantara and leather upholstery.
And the price?
Well, the MC20 has an MSRP of $212,000 for the base model, and this is definitely not basic.
So for this Novitec tuned version of the Maserati MC20, expect to pay anywhere up to half a mil’.
About the Maserati MC20
The MC20 is the brand’s first all-new model in a long time, especially considering the Levante SUV is just a heavily revised Alfa Stelvio.
More to the point, it uses the first in-house Maserati engine in over 20 years.
It’s a twin-turbo V6, and the company is so proud of it, it’s given it a name: ‘Nettuno’.
Earlier this year, the company also unveiled a convertible version of the MC20 dubbed Cielo, which is Italian for ‘sky’.
