The automaker has announced the MC20 will be produced at the historic location of Viale Ciro Menotti on a new assembly line that was created to occupy the space previously used for the manufacturing of the discontinued (from November last year) GranTurismo and GranCabrio models.

Maserati with the unveil of its MC20 marks the return of the company in the supercar segment.

"MC" stands for Maserati Corse, and "20" for 2020. The supercar will come with a price tag of $210,000 in the U.S., which is somewhere around ₹1.54 crore when converted.

And with the Tesla Roadster specifications set for a top speed of 402km/hr, acceleration from 0-97km/hr in 1.9 seconds and an expcted 1,000hp, an all-electric Maserati will need to up its game. Above this, a touch screen controls the infotainment and there's a digital gauge cluster behind the steering wheel.

"This new launch could be a wake-up call for Maserati", said Carlo Alberto Carnevale-Maffe, a professor in business strategy at the Bocconi University in Milan. We will all make our own minds up about the styling - PH is looking around the MC20 right now, so a more detailed verdict is due soon - but we can hopefully all agree that having a mid-engined Maserati back in the world has to be a good thing.

Other features such as the wireless charging pad, drive mode selector, multimedia system control and power windows will also come as standard.

The supercar with its aggressive looks comes with six color schemes on offer. This particular engine is manufactured and designed by Maserati itself. It produces a massive 630BHP of power while the peak torque claimed by the company is around 730Nm.

In addition to the MC20, Maserati recently unveiled high-performance "Trofeo" versions of its Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans equipped with 580-horsepower engines, billed as the fastest Maserati sedans ever.
