It's so extreme that even the passenger seat is optional
Maserati recently presented the Project24, a limited series super sports car (referred to by a codename) to further raise the brand's presence in the supercar scene.
The Two-seater non-road-homologated car will be powered by the same Nettuno 3.0-litre V6 twin turbo engine as the MC20, producing 740 hp.
Paired with the engine is 2WD 6-speed sequential racing gearbox with paddle shifters, a racing clutch, and a limited-slip self-locking mechanical differential.
While the extreme track-only car inherits the specifications of the Maserati MC20, it further enhances it with technical specifications that have advanced even further.
For instance, there is the Brembo CCM-R ventilated carbon-ceramic braking system, tyres tuned up for racing, as well as FIA-approved safety features, Adjustable racing ABS, and traction control.
Based on the brand’s obsession with lightness, the target weight of the new Maserati vehicle will be below 1,250 kg. The perfect combination of output and lightness result in h a power-to-weight ratio of approximately 1.69 kg/hp.
Designed by Centro Stile Maserati, the Project24 is built on an Ultra-light carbon fibre central monocoque chassis. The bodywork on the other hand is also made of lightweight stuff like carbon fibre.
The suspension setup comprises double-wishbone with semi-virtual steering axis, adjustable racing dampers, and adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars, while there are also FIA-homologated features like the FT3 120 L fuel tank, an FIA-spec fire extinguisher, and FIA-homologated safety roll cage.
Exterior highlights include the Multi-adjustable front & rear wing, Front LED lights, an FIA-approved rain light, as well as Lexan front and side windows, Bespoke forged 18” aluminium rims, and slick tyres.
Inside, the Maserati Project24 features racing seats (passenger seat optional), an adjustable racing pedal box, adjustable steering column, 6-point racing safety belts, a Multi-functional carbon-fibre steering wheel with built-in display, a dash and data acquisition system, and air conditioning.
That being said, Maserati claims that the Project24 will be its emblem of exclusivity and will offer a unique range of services, including track-specific experiences and state-of-the-art support, for the owners.
