After some hesitant beginnings, Maserati is correcting its trajectory and moving in the right direction to survive the profound transformation that the automobile sector is undergoing. That is why the Maserati MC20, followed by the impressive MC20 Cielo roadster, or the Grecale SUV have been presented. All electric and to which will be added a GranTurismo Folgore that will arrive to hit the table in the segment of electric sedans of the highest level.

Something where the presence of a fully closed front grille, a long hood, and a more curvaceous design also helps. Other highlights include a muscular rear end, pronounced diffuser, and MC20-inspired taillights.
