The 2021 Maserati MC20 supercar will roll on custom-developed Bridgestone “Potenza” tyres that – according to the manufacturer – enhance handling, dynamics, and efficiency.
The bespoke tyres reportedly feature an asymmetric tread for enhanced response, and an internal crown structure to distribute the footprint pressure evenly when cornering.
"Fully developed, tested and manufactured in Europe, these custom-designed Potenza tyres have been designed to meet the high demands of Maserati,” said Bridgestone EMIA's VP Consumer Replacement and OE, Steven De Bock.
“Collaborating once again with Maserati, we developed a specially engineered Potenza tyre that enables Maserati's MC20 to deliver on its power, control and sporting capabilities."
A spokesperson for Maserati Australia told CarAdvice it was not yet known how much the tyres will cost, or if they will be the only available option for owners.
“We’ll know more when the cars arrive,” they said.
The MC20 features a mid-mounted 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine producing 463kW and 730Nm.
Paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, this powertrain launched the vehicle from zero to 100km/h in a claimed 2.9 seconds.
The first deliveries are planned for 2021, and Maserati says an all-electric variant is also on the horizon.
