Maserati recalls supercar MC20

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced a recall campaign that applies to all 2022 Maserati MC20 supercars, 2021 Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans, and 2021-2022 Levante crossovers for the US market. The total number of vehicles covered by the revocable promotion is only 409 units. The problem is a potential fuel leak.

The body of the sensor in the fuel line, which can allow gasoline to leak, was declared guilty of a dangerous defect. In the best case, the engine may stall one day, and in the worst case, if there is a nearby source of fire, it will ignite. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is recalling all copies of the 2022 MC20 – a notification letter will be received by all owners of the Italian supercar in the United States by the end of December. It will ask you to go to an authorized Maserati dealer, where the defective fuel sensor housing will be replaced free of charge. The Maserati MC20 is the successor to the MC12.

The abbreviation MC in the names of both cars stands for Maserati Corse, which emphasizes their connection with racing. But if the MC12 was equipped with a V12 6.0 with a capacity of 630 horsepower, then the MC20 received a new Nettuno engine. It is equipped with a pair of turbochargers, a dry sump lubrication system, a variable displacement oil pump, two phase-shifting camshafts and a dual injection system. The motor power is 630 horsepower. It is paired with an 8-speed robot with two clutches.
