F1 tech boosts Maserati’s new V-6 to 621 hp
Maserati has confirmed the technical specifications of its in-house Nettuno engine. As we have previously reported, the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 will power the mid-engined MC20 supercar from September 2020.
The Nettuno engine is a traditional 90-degree V with dry sump, and delivers 621 hp at 7500 rpm and 538 lb ft of torque from 3000 rpm. So how does it achieve its impressive specific output of over 200 hp per liter?
Maserati was certainly making V6s with 90 degrees between the banks in the '70s, so I guess they're traditional. They were doing it because they had a V8 production line, a number of cylinders for which a 90 degree V is actually desirable. What was the reasoning for this engine? The Maserati Porous Star V6 applications are the smoother running 60 degree configuration.
