Maserati Presents Nettuno

Nettuno Engine
The hotly-anticipated Maserati MC20 super sportscar is making its world premiere this September. With it, the brand-new 100% Maserati engine, the Nettuno, makes a debut of its own, introducing an exciting new era for the Maserati brand. The technology used to develop the Nettuno engine is derived from Formula 1 – the first of its kind designed for the road. Join the team from Rusnak Maserati of Pasadena below as we discuss more details about this groundbreaking Maserati engine.



The Nettuno Backstory

Based on its name, you might imagine the Nettuno engine was developed in Nettuno, Italy. Actually, the expert team of engineers and technicians who designed and developed the engine returned to Maserati’s Modena, Italy headquarters to do so. Maserati has called the Nettuno “the result of a technical revolution,” and this 100% Maserati engine is every bit as important as it sounds – so much so, it’s protected by international patents!

Learn More About the Architecture of the Nettuno

The new Maserati engine boasts a V90° architecture with a 3.0L 6-cylinder twin-turbo and featuring a dry sump. At the heart of the Nettuno is a revolutionary pre-chamber combustion system featuring twin-spark plugs, a technology derived from Formula 1. Let’s take a look at what Maserati has called out as the 3 main features of Nettuno to get a better understanding of its build:

  • The Pre-Chamber: Connected by a series of specially-designed holes, a combustion chamber is set between the central electrode and the traditional combustion chamber
  • Lateral Sparkplug: If the Maserati engine is operating at a level that doesn’t require the pre-chamber to activate, a traditional sparkplug acts as a support to maintain constant combustion
  • Twin Injection System – Direct & Indirect: The twin injection system is linked to the fuel supply pressure at 350 bar (approximately 5,076 psi) to reduce noise low down on the rev range, reduce emissions, and improve consumption

What Are the Specs of a 100% Maserati Engine?

An engine that’s 100% Maserati should surely deliver heart-pounding power for Los Angeles supercar enthusiasts who dare to get behind the wheel, and the Nettuno doesn’t disappoint. Check out the Maserati engine specs to learn more:
