What should I be paying?
This is a surprisingly busy part of the market and the MC20 finds itself going up against all the big guns: Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG, McLaren and Porsche. (Did we miss anyone out? Honda NSX, maybe… remember that?) Truth is, if you’re someone like David Beckham – as it happens, a newly appointed Maserati brand ambassador – you’re most likely adding to your car collection rather than choosing a car like this as your only transport. So the £187,230 asking price is largely irrelevant, and likely to be swollen somewhat after a visit to the configurator.
Maseratis aren’t traditionally depreciation-proof and supply and demand issues are wreaking havoc with the values of some pre-owned supercars. But the MC20 is destined to remain a rare sight which should protect it.
Finally, Maserati claims 24.6mpg combined fuel consumption; ‘lean into’ the MC20’s performance and naturally that number plummets into single figures. Overall, including mountain pass, motorway and urban driving, we crept into the low Twenties. But push that engine and it sure likes a drink.
