Following the global debut of the Maserati Trofeo collection and  MC20  super car, the prototypes made one of their first stops at Rick Case Maserati.

The dramatic gullwing doors in the MC20 super car accentuated “the ease of access and awesome coooool design and dramatic!” president and CEO of Rick Case Automotive Group told Boca Voice.

The new Trefeo collection will be in inventory at the dealership, 3500 Weston Road, Davie. So customers can take test drives, Case said. The sports car is a special order. The first cars will be delivered in September 2021, Case said.

The new MC20 has a new Nettuno engine, a 621 horsepower V6 with torque of 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) that delivers 0-100 km/h acceleration in under 2,9 seconds (0 – 60 miles in under 2.9 seconds). The top speed is over 325 km an hour (202 miles per hour). https://www.maseratiusa.com/us/en/models/mc20

Here’s what Car and Driver said: “The MC20 will be offered as a two-seater coupe or convertible with a minimalist cabin that’s focused on the driver. A collaboration with motorsport engineering company Dallara has resulted in a carbon-fiber structure with aluminum subframes for the suspension and powertrain. This construction minimizes weight, which sets the MC20 up for performance-related success.”

Maserati expands the Trofeo collection. Levante is joined by Ghibli and Quattroporte. Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo are the fastest Maserati sedans ever. with a top speed of 326 km/h or 203 mph. Levante Trofeo’s maximum speed is 302 km/h or 187 mph. The V8 engine is in Ghibli for the first time. Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo has power output of 580 hp at 6,750 RPM and peak torque of 538 lb-ft.

Although completely new for Ghibli, the V8 engine has been used in the past on Quattroporte GTS, in the 523 hp version. Today, the 580 hp V8 engine is available on the new Ghibli, Quattroporte and Levante Trofeo, in full compliance with fuel efficiency and emissions standards.

  • New on-board technological features for the Trofeo collection. Like Levante Trofeo, the new Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo incorporate the Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) system.
  • The sedans have the Corsa button that sets the car for a sportier driving style. Also included is Launch Control, a function that first appeared on Levante Trofeo to unleash all the engine’s power.
  • Special stylistic touches include the front grille with twin vertical bars in Black Piano finish. The introduction of carbon fiber on the front air duct trims and rear extractor. Red details characterize the bottom profiles of the side air vents and the arrow on the Trident badge on the C-pillars.
  • Major changes at the rear of the car include completely restyled light clusters with a boomerang-like profile inspired by the 3200 GT and the Alfieri concept car.
  • The Ghibli Trofeo hood has been restyled, featuring two air ducts for better cooling like on Levante Trofeo.
  • Ghibli and Quattroporte Trofeo are fitted with 21” aluminium Orione wheels. 22” Orione wheels are available on Levante Trofeo.
  • The interior has a new on-board panel that displays an interface at switch-on. The headrests bear the Trofeo badge with the name in three-dimensional relief. The interior upholstery is in full-grain Pieno Fiore natural leather.
