NEW MASERATI HANDLES ITALY’S SNOW AND ICE WITH EASE.
The new Maserati super sports car, the MC20, has never previously been seen unleashing its power on low-grip surfaces. But it has recently engaged in a series of reliability tests on road and track, in various driving conditions as well as intensive coldweather trials on the snow-covered roads of the Valtellina and at the Ghiacciodromo Livigno (Sondrio), Italy’s most notable snow and ice circuit.
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 lowgrip asphalt surfaces. Drivers and the company’s expert engineers also verified the efficient functioning of the climate control system in cold conditions and ran a series of checks on the battery, suspension and brakes.
And, while one might not expect a high-performance, high-speed motor such as the MC20 to pull off ice and snow driving, results were just the opposite. The extreme conditions did not hinder the new MC20; in fact, they enhanced the opposing personalities of this car, born from the brand’s racing DNA but designed for series production. ✤
