MASERATI has unveiled its all-new supercar, capable of speeds of up to 202mph – but there’s a major downside for those hoping to buy one.
The sleek MCXtrema is a V6 supercar with brand new turbo technology that makes it extremely powerful.
However, those looking to purchase a model may be disappointed to learn that the car can only be driven on a race track as it is still illegal on the road.
But the 730 hp engine will delight car lovers of all ages, although only 62 examples of the supercar are to be made.
The vehicle was created in collaboration between Centro Stile and the Maserati engineering team.
Davide Grasso, CEO of Maserati, said of the car: “Maserati MCXtrema was developed with the goal of offering an incredibly exclusive product that can set a new paradigm for our racing cars.”
“The project is aimed at a select clientele that values particular details, ranging from the most refined and innovative design to exceptional performance.”
A fixed racing seat with adjustable pedal box and steering column make the car an exciting model for track driving.
A promotional video showed the supercar whizzing around corners with ease.
And each of the 62The models made from the MCXtrema will be unique in their special features – but cost a seven-figure sum.
Last year a tycoon caused a stir when he drove his £2million Bugatti supercar at nearly 260mph on a German autobahn.
The public prosecutor had investigated whether there was a banhad happened in the millionaire’s £2 million vehicle on the A2 between Berlin and Hanover.
According to the law, they had to prove that the driver had moved “recklessly” through traffic in order to achieve the “maximum possible speed”.
However, it was understood that Passer’s speed was less than 2 mph below the sports car’s limited top speed, which was set at 261 mph, as the vehicle’s tires could burst if it went faster.
Prosecutors also said the highway was almost empty and noted good visibility and weather conditions.
Consequently, they concluded that no one was at risk during the 4:50 a.m. stunt.
Since the suspicion was not sufficient, Passer was not charged.
