Maserati has unveiled its latest track-specific vehicle, the Maserati GT2, the automaker announced.
The all-new GT2 was developed to bring the Maserati brand back to GT competitions, and drew inspiration from Maserati’s former GT car, the MC12, which competed on-track from 2005 to 2010.
Designed and built for private teams, the GT2 is powered by the marque’s 621-hp Nettuno V6 engine and was designed to take part in championships or individual events reserved for the GT2 class, the company said. The Maserati GT2 will debut on the track in the final stages of the 2023 Fanatec GT European Series and is due to participate in the entire 2024 season.
“Our DNA and our spirit have always lain in racing. Our story began and developed from the track to the road,” said Davide Grasso, Maserati CEO. “The decision to return to track racing forms part of a thorough strategic framework, inaugurated this year with the debut in Formula E, to which we have now added our return to the world of GT competitions. Now more than ever we want to rekindle and nourish that competitive passion that has always characterized and motivated us to achieve major milestones.”
