Maserati has revealed the digital rendering for its track-only Project24 supercar. It is based on the MC20 coupe and will be produced in a limited run of just 62 units. As for the highlights, the car features an aggressive design language with aerodynamic body panels made using carbon fiber. It is backed by a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine that makes 740hp of power.
Why does this story matter?
Maserati has a long and celebrated history of competing in motorsport events such as Formula 1, sportscar, and touring car racing. The Project24 is created as a tribute to the brand's racing lineage and is built using the successful MC20 model from its portfolio. The supercar is not road-legal and it is unclear whether it will make its way to our shores.

The Maserati Project24 supercar has a sharp-looking front fascia, featuring a large, sculpted bonnet, sleek LED headlights, wide air intakes, a massive front air splitter, and a raked windscreen. On the sides, the supercar is flanked by ORVMs and 18-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in slick racing tires. Center-mounted dual exhaust tips, a large wing, split-type LED taillights, and a diffuser grace the rear.

The track-only Maserati Project24 is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged, Nettuno V6 petrol engine that churns out 740hp of maximum power. The mill is mated to a 6-speed sequential racing gearbox with a mechanical limited-slip differential. The supercar can sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds.
The two-seater cabin is in accordance with FIA safety requirements
On the inside, the Project24 has a minimalist two-seater cabin designed according to FIA safety requirements.
