Maserati’s new V6 TT “Nettuno” draws upon F1 tech
Maserati has released a few details about its upcoming in-house designed six-cylinder engine called Nettuno, which it plans to install on the MC20.
The petrol-burning unit has three liters of displacement to work with and produces 630 hp (470 kW), which translates into superb 210 horsepower-per-liter ratio. The peak torque climbs as high as 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) and is available between 3,000 and 5,000 RPM.
The main distinguishing feature of the Nettuno is its turbulent reactive ignition tech which is normally only used in Formula One cars. The forechamber initially receives a small portion of the fuel, which then combusts and gets injected into the main chamber.
Maserati says the MC20 won’t be the only model to benefit from the new engine.
